Description: Sather Tower is a campanile (bell and clock tower) on the University of California, Berkeley campus. It is more commonly known as The Campanile (pronounced "cam-pah-KNEE-lay") due to its resemblance to the Campanile de San Marco in Venice, and serves as UC Berkeley's most recognizable symbol. It was completed in 1914 and first opened to the public in 1917. The tower stands 307 feet (93.6 meters) tall, which makes it the tallest bell-tower outside of Italy as well as 22 feet taller than rival Stanford's Hoover Tower. It was designed by John Galen Howard, founder of the College of Environmental Design, and it marks a secondary axis in his original Beaux-Arts campus plan. Since then, it has been a major point of orientation in almost every campus master plan.
