Tower Carrarese is considered by the inhabitants of Piove di Sacco as a city symbol and currently is the bell tower near the dome.
The tower is located in square St. Maria dei penitenti, in front of the same-named church and it’s possible to visit it during the main cultural events and the market of the porches. In these occasions you can rise the top of the bell tower and admire the view of the city centre and the nearby areas.
The tower was originally the castle keep and was built by Francesco da Carrara around 1360 together with other three unit (Tower Rossi, Tower Panico and Tower Carrarese). After the destructions in 1800, the latter were destroyed and the name “Carrarese” switched to the old one. Definitely interesting is the clockwork, which resists since 1907, albeit flanked by modern system.
Tower Carrarese is very close to the little church (St. Mary of penitents) and so to the new museum “paradiso”.
