Construction for leaning tower of Pisa began in 12 century . This was the place whereย Galileo conducted his famous experiment by dropping two spheres of different masses to demonstrate gravity. The tower started leaning because of defective foundation and soft soil on one side. Eventually in 1990 restoration work begin and it was stabilized byย  correcting tilt and further improving the foundation.
