Excerpt from A Renaissance Leaning Facade at Genoa
At the southwest angle, as seen from the side (fig. I), the base courses, plinth, and mouldings were noted as level. On the other hand, the pilaster had a slight forward tilt, which appeared to be produced by masonry cutting. The front lower angle of each pil aster block appeared to be slightly obtuse, and the rear angle of each block appeared to be slightly acute (fig. I).
Of course, if the obvious lean (fig. 3) had been due to settle ment, then the base mouldings would have dipped downward toward the front.
