Is this supposed to refer to the Leaning Tower of Pisa? I can't imagine a bent tower.

I'm not claiming that turo matches this definition of tower in English, but here's an example of an electric transmission tower that's bent.

The 'Leaning Tower of Pisa' leans; it doesn't bend.

It does. It started to lean as they built it and they compensated for that lean. So, the 'Leaning Tower of Pisa' is also the bent tower...

It is English, but not in the same context. For example:

"You'll never guess what bent that tower." "Did a man bend the tower?" "No." "I give up. What did bend the tower?"

That would be unusual in English. "Tilted" would be more usual, and better than "bent".
