Two of the remaining medieval towers of Bologna,
by @ansharphoto
Video of the towers in the eighth "slide" here

Medieval Bologna was an interesting place. The wealthy got into a tower-building craze -- the towers actually just being expensive homes, or castles, if you like -- and the city featured more than 100 of them. It was virtually a city of skyscrapers. Well, 100-150 foot skyscrapers.

bolognacityoftowers.jpg
Medieval Bologna, full of towers,
as imagined by modern engraver Toni Pecoraro (b. 1958, Agrigento, Sicily).

See, I'm not lying. Wikipedia says so and you know they never lie, nope, not about anything.

Between the 12th and the 13th century, Bologna was a city full of towers. Almost all the towers were tall (the highest being 97m), defensive stone towers. Besides the towers, there are still some fortified gateways (torresotti) that correspond to the gates of the 12th-century city wall (Mura dei torresotti or Cerchia dei Mille), which itself has been almost completely destroyed.

The reasons for the construction of so many towers are not clear. One hypothesis is that the richest families used them for offensive/defensive purposes during the period of the Investiture Controversy.

In the 13th century, many towers were taken down or demolished, and others simply collapsed. Many towers have subsequently been utilized in one way or the other: as prison, city tower, shop or residential building. Still, the towers remained a famous sight of Bologna throughout the later periods; even Dante mentioned some of the towers in his Inferno. The last demolitions took place during the 20th century, according to an ambitious, but retrospectively unfortunate, restructuring plan for the city; the Artenisi Tower and the Riccadonna Tower at the Mercato di mezzo were demolished in 1917.

Fewer than twenty towers can still be seen in today's Bologna. Among the remaining ones are the Azzoguidi Tower, also called Altabella (with a height of 61 m), the Prendiparte Tower, called Coronata (60 m), the Scappi Tower (39 m), Uguzzoni Tower (32 m), Guidozagni Tower, Galluzzi Tower, and the famous Two Towers: the Asinelli Tower (97 m) and the Garisenda Tower (48 m).

...

The towers must actually have crowded Bologna in the Middle Ages and there has been considerable debate about their peak number before the first ones were demolished to avoid collapse or for other reasons.

The first historian to study the towers of Bologna in a systematic way was Count Giovanni Gozzadini, a senator of the Italian kingdom in the 19th century, who studied the city's history intensively, not least to raise the prestige of his home town in the context of the now united Italy. He based his analysis mostly on the civic archives of real estate deeds, attempting to arrive at a reliable number of towers on the basis of documented ownership changes. His approach resulted in the extraordinary number of 180 towers, an enormous amount considering the size and resources of medieval Bologna.

More recent studies pointed out that Gozzadini's methodology might have led to multiple counts of buildings, which could have been referred to in legal documents by different names, depending on the name of the family who actually owned it at a given moment. More recent estimates reduced therefore the number to a total between 80 and 100, where not all towers existed at the same time.

I choose to believe "more than 100." Based on the fact that I already typed that and don't want to edit it.

Medievalism buff/RPG geek Shadiversity talks about the "City of Castles" here.

Here's a video about them, with images of the extant towers. He tells an interesting, bloody story at 2:18. Not sure I buy the arrows remaining to this day. But, print the legend I guess.

16 Did anyone see that article about Killer whales in Spain ramming and sinking boats? It is a real thing and apparently it is the result of one female teaching other whales to attack sail boats. Speculation is that she got hit by a sail boat and got pi$$ed and is now teaching every other orca she comes into contact with how to attack the boats. Two have been rammed and sunk so far.

This is considered a saintly characteristic.

Yeah, even the good stuff looks different more often than not these days. We're eating xerox copies of copies of copies of copies of what used to taste good and changed so slowly that we don't realize everything is crap now.

I bought a meat slicer recently. It's not deli quality, but worth the money ($50 or so) to save buying meat in bulk and slicing/freezing it myself. If you can find somewhere to store it then it will pay for itself in a couple of months. Maybe not even that.

With quality writing (i.e., NOT typical Hollywood writing), this would be a very fun series to watch, I think. As I recall, the books are not terribly long, so you could probably crank out a series of interconnected stories in television format without too much trouble. If someone wanted to take that risk, which again means typical Hollywood isn't interested or capable of producing this.

One of the thought exercises I do sometimes is to try to figure out what aliens would be like - or even other "races" like elves of dwarves. What would set us apart? Different human cultures are so distinct sometimes its hard to even communicate effectively. Even just women and men are different enough that we conflict out of sheer confusion. What about another race? What sets humans apart?

Tolkien's races were basically humans with slightly different bonuses (hobbits were hardy and hid well, elves could walk on snow and had amazing senses, etc). What would a really different, alien elf be like?

Well that was the ultimate answer. Deep Thought told them it didn't make sense because they didn't know the ultimate question, so they built an even better computer to find that out.

But just before it gave the answer, the Vogons blew up the earth to make way for an interstellar bypass.

177 My wife is watching something horrible that I think might be a Hedy Lamarr show. It's all rat-a-tat-tat delivery ALL THE TIME, even during casual sit down and semi-romantic scenes, and it's almost impossible to watch. I think they're trying to reproduce something from the era, but it comes across as so fake and grating and condescending that I can't even be in the same room when it's on.

Here in NC we've got red hot dogs called Bright Leafs. They're bright red because they were a cheap depression-era food but the gray color was off-putting, so a recipe was concocted changing the color and flavor a bit. They're a bit firmer than Nathans, too. I like them a lot.

That means your Daisy BB gun — which under the state’s expansive and idiotic gun control laws is actually considered a firearm — may have a serial number on it, but Daisy isn’t a federally licensed gun maker. As a result that Red Ryder in your kid’s closet now makes you a felon.

285 The funny part about the Camaro wreck is I'm guessing it has drivers assitance that allows quite a bit of leeway and foolishness but will still prevent you from getting so sideways that you need to correct. Having driven a new car with lane assist, I wouldn't be surprised if it corrects for you while allowing you to slide around.

That idiot turned off everything so he could total his car for strangers to post online.

Does have launch control, which I thought was a pretty ballsy thing to put in it.

Car is designed to let the driver drive the car.
