I've translated a good bit of content from the Italian article, but I've deliberately not included the "Curiosities" section. The result could stand some proofreading. —Ryan McDaniel 20:39, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Photograph of collapse[edit]

I've never seen the picture before, any more info about it, like who the photographer was? Surely it would have been impossible to capture motion like that then, and although it does look rather impressive, the white surrounding the top gives it away quite easily at least to modern eyes. Did it really fool people? -- (talk) 20:20, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Let's Have an Article and a Category on the topic of Reconstructed Building or Replica Building[edit]

I think we should have an article and a category on the topic of reconstructed builldings or replica buildings, like this campanile. German Wikipedia has it and it counts almost 60 very interesting examples.

I am now back home so I can strengthen my argument and add some links that may convince you. Have e.g. a look at Yongdingmen, House of the Blackheads, Iberian Gate and Chapel, Cathedral of Christ the Saviour (Moscow), Dresden Frauenkirche and Semperoper. All these landmark buildings are in fact new but also replicas of older buildings that have been destroyed by historical and natural catastrophies.

I may actually try to write at least a short stub on that topic right now.

I recently saw a piece on the CBC that talked about the tower listing some 7 centimeters off center, due to poor foundation (apparently, this same problem was what caused the original tower to fall). The piece also talked about several other Venice towers with the same problem brought on by the rising sea. Some mention of this should be made in the article.Rickremember (talk) 23:01, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

The base of San Marco Campanile is currently cordoned off, as they have been injecting the foundations (with resin concrete ?) for circa 2 years now to stop sinking. If all goes well, it will be unveiled in 2012 August. Allegedly a titanium reinforcing belt has been put around the bottom of the tower some years ago, so it will not fall apart.
