Garisenda Tower

Piazza di Porta Ravegnana 82 (Bologna)


The two towers are the monuments of the town: the Torre degli Asinelli (97.20 metres, the leaning tower Italy's highest) and the Garisenda Tower (originally 60 m high, 48 now) built at the behest of Ghibelline nobles in the 12th century from which they take their name.

The longer of the two, the leaning Garisenda, was repeatedly cited by Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy (Inferno, XXXI, 136-140) and in rhyme, as evidence of his stay in Bologna.
