Bologna, Italy. A beautiful city! As one wit said: - "Red fat scholar." Red- because the houses and the roofs here are mostly red. Fat - because there is a delicious cuisine about which the residents of Bologna are very proud and scholar - because there are many universities, some of the oldest in Europe; where Copernicus, Dante, Petrarca and Boccaccio studied.
Italy is famous for its towers which were considered very prestigious for the family - have your very own tower! Now there are fewer, but in the past - there were a very great many. Among the most famous towers is Azinelli, which is connected with an interesting legend.
Once upon a time there lived a poor boy. He used a donkey to deliver Reno river sand and gravel for construction work. In Italian the word for donkey is Asino. So the boy was called - Azinelli. He fell in love with a beautiful girl from a wealthy family but because he was a poor, the girl's father did not want them to marry. He joked: "When you build the highest tower, then I'll give you my daughter’s hand in marriage."
The young man was upset because he had no money to build a tower but fortunately he found a treasure of gold coins in the river. Then he hired workers and they built the highest tower and he then married his beloved!
It is believed that the tower was built in Azinelli in 1109. This tower is 97 meters high and has 498 steps, it is located 200 meters from Piazza di Maggiore. Next to this tower was built another tower - Garizenda. It was very high and the weight caused it to start to sink and it also began to lean heavily. In an attempt to prevent it falling they dismantled the tower top, shortening it twice. You can still see these two towers, one of which is heavily tilted. You can climb up Azinelli, which has a height of almost 100 meters and enjoy the view of the entire City of Bologna but the entrance to the Garizenda tower is closed.
