Pisa

LORELAI: I want Luke to look at it.
MAN: Hey, I put this thing together.
LORELAI: Yes, and I loved your work in Pisa. Now get out of the way, please.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa, a freestanding bell tower of the cathedral in the Italian city of Pisa. It began leaning during its construction in the 12th century, due to unstable foundations, and is famous worldwide. Numerous efforts have been made to restore it to its vertical position: most failed, several have made it worse. It has been straightened slightly and stabilised since the 1990s, but it’s such a tourist attraction as a tilting tower that nobody really wants it corrected.
