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.
