There are many in Italy. San Gimignano has 72 of them
Bologna used to have 180, but many had been destroyed…
Some Italian towers are very famous…
La torre di Pisa
La torre della Garisenda and la torre degli Asinelli in Bologna
And many are the superstitions connected with them.
In Pisa they say that you will never graduate from College if you climb the stairs of the tower. Same thing for the Campanile di Giotto in Firenze.
Same thing in Bologna, never climb the Torre degli Asinelli!
