Why Does it leans

Why the leaning tower of Pisa leans. When the tower was constructed the foundation was marble very large. Also the marble was crooked. The marble had 14,500 tones on it from the tower. So over time the foundation started to lean. Bonanno tried to fix the foundation by adding another foundation 10ft in the ground.
