    The Brescia gasometer was built in 1932 in a suburb of the city.
    It is 22.50m in diameter and 45m tall. It was destroyed by bombing in 1947 but amazingly
    remained active till 1953. It continued to work for another 40 years before retiring in 1993.
    In 1996 a competition was held for its redevelopment, which to date has had
    no real evolution. So now it sits in Tarello park with nothing to do but watch time go by.

    Whilst in Brescia for the IDM - Analepsis, Fishbrain and I headed inside this beast. Had to climb
    up the outer shell before we reached the external staircase and were able to get inside.
    The echo was pretty amazing and being able to climb down inside to the bottom was well worth it.
