Abstract (in English)

A survey is made of the general characteristics of the monument and its static condition as well as the variations in this condition due to the increase in its slope which are being registered continuously and relentlessly. Previsions are made on how long the Tower is likely to survive if the speed at which the Tower continues to lean does not undergo variations.
