Description
Ancient Astronomical clock tower in 'Piazza dei Signori' (Square of Lords) in Padua, Italy.
This is one of the oldest Astronomical clock in Italy.
Originally done by Giovanni Dondi dell'Orologio in 1344, it was destroyed during a fire event and reproduced in 1605.

A curiosity: If you look at the zodiac symbols, Libra, symbol of justice, is missing. The architect intentionally excluded Libra after the payment because it was lower then previously agreed!!
