(Vandaag precies 15 jaar geleden op 15 december 2001 wordt de (scheve) toren van Pisa weer voor het publiek geopend, na een restauratie die 11 jaar heeft geduurd. De toren van Pisa is de vrijstaande klokkentoren bij de kathedraal van Pisa. De bedoeling was een verticale toren te bouwen en deze werd in drie fasen, over een periode van 200 jaar, opgebouwd. De constructie van de eerste verdiepingen startte op 9 augustus 1173. Nadat de derde verdieping in 1178 tot stand was gekomen ging de toren hellen. In augustus 2004 heeft een evaluatie van experts uitgewezen dat de toren de eerstvolgende drie eeuwen niet zal instorten.)
