Even today, unfortunately, the great mass continues to sink very slowly. It is a question of about 1 mm. every year. Nobody has yet stated with mathematical precision that this sinking will continue in the future at the present yearly rate. Adequate measures, based on scientific studies and projects, are under consideration as remedies to the sinking of ground below the leaning tower of Pisa. In the meantime supervision with instruments of very high precision is continuously being carried out. Hope they can save the Tower of Pisa which is Italy's pride. Nice post! :-) Wow Abby,

It was built with a foundation but the ground below it was continuously sinking from the time it started getting constructed! In the base of Leaning Tower of Pisa, there is a series of big blind arcades with geometrical decorations. In the belfry there is the same design of arcades as that of the base, with the difference that here, there are, apart from the reduced proportions, the housings of the bells, which is just awesome!

Cylindrical in shape it is supplied with six open galleries. A cornice separates these galleries one from the other and each presents a series of small arches fitted on the capitals of the slender columns. A marvelous piece of architecture!
