Glyph


The Torri dei Salvucci (English: Salvucci Towers) was a twin set of towers located in San Gimignano.

HistoryEdit

ConceptionEdit

In a city famous for its towers, the Salvucci family, in a display of 13th century might, erected not one, but two towers. Not only that, they built 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, reclaiming the honor of having the highest tower in the city.

TriviaEdit

  • A glyph is located on the tower.
