Description

The Leaning Tower of Pisa, one of the seven wonders of the world faced instability and started inclining due to bad engineering and weak soil profile.
In addition to that the city of Italy has a high ground water level which further worsened the condition.
Due to instability conditions the building was shut off in 1990 and after taking necessary countermeasures the building reopened for tourists in 2001.
In 2008, 70 tons of weight were removed as the tower had stopped moving fo the first time in history.
The building Is predicted to remain stable for 300 years to come.
