Watts Towers - Then & Now (Color, 3-D, 12 min).
In 1921, an Italian immigrant named Simon Rodia embarked on a 33 year journey of self-expression. Entirely inner directed, with no formal training in art, architecture, or engineering, Rodia was able to create what has become a National Historic Landmark - and a symbol of the power of the human spirit.
Using only simple hand tools and his own ingenuity, he constructed a walled courtyard of fanciful creations in a complex he called “Nuestro Pueblo”.
