The medieval Torre Bissara fell victim of American bombing in WW2, ad was rebuilt in 2002. A peculiarity is the ringtone, a melody that belongs to this tower alone.

As soon as I turned right coming from "Corso Palladio" to enter "Piazza dei Signori" I have been astonished by the beaty of this tower. Its red bricks made it feel warm and gentle to me.
