pendente means leaning.

La Torre Pendente – The Leaning Tower
(Shot in Pisa, Italy. Processed in PS.)

I actually quite like this landmark.
I think it’s an interesting satirical reflection of Italian culture and work ethics.

I’ll explain why:

-This tower was never supposed to lean. It was intended to stand vertically, but started to lean because of poorly laid foundations and loose substrate. And because of this “fault” we now have something famous, interesting and beautiful! We started with a good design, that did not go to plan, but we still managed to make something beautiful out of it.

Typically Italian………

-The tower took more than 177 years to build, with constant stopping and starting, and arguments over who was in charge.

Typically Italian………

-We are proud of our landmarks in Italy, as well as the people responsible for designing and building them. But interestingly, with this landmark there is controversy on who the actual architect was. There are a number of theories on who was responsible for this structure. Italians are good at taking credit for when things go to plan…….but when things don’t…….well, then no-one is responsible.

Typically Italian………….
