The Campanile di Giotto (English: Giotto's Bell-tower) was the free standing bell-tower of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence.

HistoryEdit

The tower was built between 1334 and 1359; initially under the watch of Giotto di Bondone, and later by his successors. One of the tallest structures in Florence, the Campanile accompanied the Santa Maria del Fiore, providing an impressive view of the city of Florence and beyond.

The campanile housed up to seven separate bells at one point, though in 1476, the upper levels of the Campanile had been emptied for renovation. Each windowed floor of the Campanile was spaced a distinctly separate distance from the former, so as to give the impression from the ground that all were equal.
