The Two Towers. Bologna, Italy

The Two Towers both of them leaning, are the

symbol of Bologna, Italy, and the most prominent

of the Towers of Bologna.

 

They are located at the intersection of the roads that lead to

the five gates of the old ring wall (mura dei torresotti).

The taller one is called the Asinelli while the smaller but more leaning tower is called the Garisenda.

 

Their names derive from the families which are traditionally credited with having constructed the towers between

1109 and 1119.
