Almost forgot... this is Bologna:


The "Two Towers", nothing to do with the Twin Towers, obviously...

i was on top of that right tower in 2010 when i was in bologna with nudie jeans co.

G. if you have the plan to go on top of it (the view over bologna is stunning!)...just keep in mind that you have to climb like 100'000 steps and more. great for the denim but fecked for the wearer :) you gonna cuss all the way to the top :D

will try and see if i can find the pics from that trip.

That Tower is called "Asinelli", from the name of Gherardo Asinelli, that once commissioned the construction (1119).
The tower on the left is called "Garisenda".

A view from the inside:

498 steps, 97,20 meters.

I made the climb 2 times, when I was young, agile and fearless... but not with the denim in mind!
If you assure me that's "great for the denim", I could make a third attempt... with my 666XHS! ;-)

Phew, looks amazing!  I’m not great in high buildings, get vertigo, but if it’s not too crowded I will give it a go.  I know Giles will definitely want to climb to the top.  Am so excited about our long weekend in Bologna, only 9 days before we leave!

Yeah, something like the Sagrada Familia in Barcellona. The feeling of becoming part of the view... in a flash.
