The Leaning Tower of Pisa or simply The Tower of Pisa La Torre di Pisa is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. It is situated behind the cathedral and is the third oldest structure in Pisas Piazza del Duomo Cathedral Square after the cathedral and the baptistry.
Although intended to stand vertically, the tower began leaning to the southeast soon after the onset of construction in 1173 due to a poorly laid foundation and loose substrate that has allowed the foundation to shift direction. The tower presently leans to the southwest.
The height of the tower is 55.86 m 183.27 ft from the ground on the lowest side and 56.70 m 186.02 ft on the highest side.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the freestanding bell tower of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. It is known for its nearly 4 degree lean, the result of an unsuitable foundation.

The height of the tower is 55.86 meters from the ground from the low side and 56.67 meters on the high side. The width of the walls at the base in 2.44 m. its weight is estimated to be 14,500 metric tonnes.

The tower started leaning during construction in the 12th century, due to soft ground which could not properly support the structure’s weight. It worsened through the completion of construction in the 14th century. By 1990, the tilt had reached 5.5 degrees. The structure was stabilized by remedial work between 1993 and 2001, which reduced the tilt to 3.97 degrees.

Construction of the tower occurred in three stages over 199 years. The tower began to sink after construction had progressed to the second floor in 1178. This was due to a mere three meter foundation, set in weak, unstable subsoil, a design that was flawed from beginning. Construction was subsequently halted for almost a century, as the republic of Pisa was continually engaged in battles with Genoa, Lucca and Florence. This allowed time for the underlying soil to settle.

At FlatPyramid, we have developed a high resolution 3-D model of the Pisa tower. It is available in different formats for commercial, non-commercial and editorial purposes. For further inquiry, please feel free to contact.
