Between the 12th and the 13th century, the number of towers in Bologna was up to 180, fewer than twenty can still be seen today. The Two Towers are the symbol of the city, the taller one is called the Asinelli (97 m) and the smaller but more leaning tower is called the Garisenda (48 m).
Recently, the city’s architectural tradition of tower building has been given a new lease with the towers of the Trade show district by the Japanese architect Kenzo Tange.
