The tower hasn’t hit the ground yet because its tapered and slightly curved shape keeps its center of gravity fairly low. That means it can tip quite a bit before toppling.
In a more poetic sense, though, the tower was falling over for a long time—albeit very slowly. Its tilt, which was first noticed shortly after construction began in 1173, kept increasing until 1990. That’s when engineers declared that, at a tilt of more than five degrees, it was in danger of collapsing. A team then figured out how to correct the lean, bringing it back to a safe angle.
Since then, it’s been getting straighter, believe it or not. The residual effects from the construction meant the angle had decreased another four centimeters by 2018.
It leans to the south. It would depend on where you're looking to determine left or right.
You rope it in the direction, opposite to falling.
Pisa is located in Tuscany, Central Italy, on the right bank of the mouth of the River Arno on the Ligurian Sea.
The Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa's foundation was built on unstable soil so when they had finished the third floor it started to lean to the south. I think that the builders were humiliated at first.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa was begun on 9 August 1173, and completed in 1373. It took so long because constant battles between the Pisans and Genoa, Lucca and Florence halted the tower's construction for around 100 years.
it was started in the 1200s and finished in the 1300s and took 177 years to make.

Construction of the tower occurred in three stages across 344 years. Work on the ground floor of the white marble campanile began on August 14, 1173, during a period of military success and prosperity.
On August 9, 1173, the foundations of the Tower were laid.
In Italy in the town of PISA
The Italian name is Torre pendente di Pisa
The Leaning Tower of Pisa wasn't invented it was built as a bell tower for the church it stands next to in Pisa. It was built in 1173. The church is the work of Giovanni and Nicola Pisano, but nothing lists the Tower's maker. I would assume it is the men listed above.
Yes the leaning tower of Pisa is in Italy. The reason why they call it the "Leaning Tower" of Pisa is, because the ground is not stable and it looks like it is leaning over. The "scientists" if that is what you call them have built stilts or poles to keep it from falling over.
it is a cylinder... that is tilted... hope that helped

The tower started leaning to the southeast at the onset of construction.

The tower currently leans at 5.6 degrees. Another 1.4 degrees will be enough to bring 14,000 tons of intricately carved white marble crashing to the ground, according to Schwartz's tests. At 7 degrees the model shows that walls cannot support the structure anymore. High-tension areas on the lower floors on the northern side caused the bricks to pull apart. However, Schwartz believes that this dreadful scenario will not occur in the near future. "The structure is really good," she says. "It could last another 75 to 100 years, if the soil holds." The soft, sandy subsoil is what has given the tower its lean since Bonanno Pisano began building it in 1173. In 1990, the tower had to be closed to the public. Keen to re-open Pisa's landmark in time for the millennium, the committee has started frantic work to keep the tower aloft.

The british would have to cross Boston Harber and fight up hill. The colonist already had hiding spots because it was high, they could see the whole city, and they could shoot down.
in the middle of construction the tower started to lean
Hello NO the Eiffel Tower and the Leaning Tower Of Pisa are very different. While the Eiffel Tower is much bigger and the Tower Of Pisa is over 1,000 feet smaller than it. They are made out differently Eiffel Tower made out of metal on hard grounds, the Leaning Tower Of Pisa is made of white marble and stone built on soft grounds which cases it to lean.
Because it is leaning.
We don't know because in middle ages the architect was not considered so important as it will be in renaissance. We only know architect who signed their works, like we know for the Cathedral and the Baptistery in the same square.
We don't know for the Cemetery and for the Bell-tower. But, if for the cemetery we have some hints in the old documentation, there is nothing about the tower.
Giorgio Vasari, an architect and writer of XVI century, said that the tower has been built by Bonanno Pisano. For centuries people agreed with him without proofs.
In XIX century a stone with Bonanno's name has been found near the tower and they thought it was the proof they needed, so they put it inside the bell-tower.
Nowadays scholars studied about it. We know that Bonanno was in Pisa in 1181 creating a bronze door for the Cathedral, about the same time of the construction of the tower (1173). About the stone with his name, the ground all around the cathedral was filled with graves until 1277, when began the construction of the cemetery building.
After all those years we still don't know.
Piero Pierotti, a modern scholar, think that a possible candidate can be Diotisalvi, author of the Baptistery (1152) and possibly other buildings in Pisa that have a lot of things, architecturally speaking, in common.
