Clock Tower, Vipiteno, Italy

Note the vertically mounted sundial below the clock on this south side of the tower. Vipiteno was on the border between Italy and Hapsburg Austria, which was always trying to extend its control into Italy. Vipiteno was also the spot (in WWII, 1945) where Allied troops fighting their way up the Italian peninsula met other Allies who had landed in Normandy.
