The Leaning Tower of Pisa has been “saved” for at least another 300 years – and is no longer moving, according to the engineers in charge of the rescue operation.   The tower currently leans 13 feet off center, and has been straightened by 14.5 inches since 1999 thanks to a £20 million restoration project.   The tower, which has been leaning almost since building work first began in 1173, was closed to the public in 1990 because of safety fears, according to Reuters.   The 183-foot tower was nearly 15 feet off vertical when the project was undertaken.  MORE at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/telegraph/multimedia/archive/00674/pisa-stablised-404_674635c.jpg
