Bologna has many unique medieval towers built between the 12th and 13th century that stood over 60m. These towers were built by rich families for defensive and offensive purposes. Many of these towers had since collapsed; however there are two that remain standing and are the symbol of the city. Both of these towers are leaning and are popularly dubbed Bologna's own leaning towers. The taller of the two, Aniselli is 97.2m tall with an overhang of 2.2m. The name of the tower is derived from the family that constructed it.

Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment. – Elliott Erwitt"
“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
