“This beloved campanile was built in 1898 and is home to the Stanton Memorial Carillon. The carillon bells ring daily and tradition states that a student officially becomes an Iowa Stater when kissed under the campanile as the carillon tolls midnight. This tradition is called ‘campaniling.’”
Non ricordo più il giorno
e l’ora ma eravamo sotto Natale,
ho visto che cadeva una piuma
da in cima al campanile
e sono restato a guardare in alto
come se fossi io che volavo
e piano piano sono arrivato a terra
leggero come non mai.
Lots of stair climbing today!
We started with the tower of Palazzo vecchio and enjoyed the view on the city and Santa Maria Del Fiore. Then we climed the campanile (bell tower) of Santa Maria Del Fiore. My legs almost gave out but the view was nice.
(And then we did the leap of faith down into a haystack. ;D)
