In a city famous for its towers, the Salvucci family, in a display of 13th Century might, erected not one but two. And not only did they erect two, they build them to be taller than the ruler of San Gimignano’s (the Podestà’s) tower, despite a law made in 1255 that prohibited such an act of blatant brick and mortar-style aggression.
Outraged, the Podestà forced the towers to be cut down until they were smaller than his.
