Italy's two new leaning towers; just in case the original topples

Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the country, but at times there have been concerns that the entire thing could come crashing down. Just in case that happens Italy has now built two new leaning towers, and because they're a hotel, anyone can spend a night in the slanting buildings.

The hotel is part of Milan's Fieramilano exhibition complex, and has about 400 rooms. The towers both have a lean of 5 degrees which is actually somewhat more than the Pisa Tower, but the architect promises that there's no chance of toppling. One tower leans towards downtown Milano, while the other nudges towards the center of the Fieramilano complex.

I wonder if tourists will take pictures like they do in Pisa, that show them "holding up" the towers.
