In San Gimignano discover one of the famous towers evokes the life of the Tuscan middle-class of the late 19th century.

Of the 72 ancient towers that made San Gimignano famous, only 14 have survived to the present day. Thanks to them, we can still marvel at the unmistakable silhouette of what is the most celebrated Italian mediaeval village of all. The remaining towers include the one that belonged to the Campatellis, a family of Florentine entrepreneurs and landowners who, from the early 19th century, associated their name with the 28-metre-high tower-house erected in the mid-12th century. Today this is the only tower that has retained the original single volume of the construction, being completely hollow inside.
