The Leaning Tower Of Pisa
By: Tanner Ingram
HISTORY- The leaning tower of Pisa took over 800 years to be built and was designed by Bonanno Pisano. The Leaning tower was made out of Limestone and lime mortar. It was originally supposed to be a bell tower and was straight for only five years. The tower is the third oldest building on the cathedral square. After that, the third story was built and it started to lean. Everyone that noticed the tower was leaning got scared and thought that it was going to fall on them. During World War II the allies (Britain, France, and the United States) found out that the Germans were using the leaning tower of Pisa as lookout spot.
