The Italian icon, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, may soon lean no more – that’s according to an annual study that shows the tower is standing more upright as time goes on.

The study, released by the Tower Surveillance Group (TSG), a team of researchers established in 2001 to survey the landmark, says it has regained a whopping four centimeters (1.5 inches) over the last 20 years.

The 57-meter (183ft) tall tower is also looking sturdier than expected, with experts crediting previous, urgent remedial works in the early 1990s as the reason behind the improved structure.
