Rudi Hoffmann's inspiration for Ramparts came from the great medieval towers of San Gimignano built in the Tuscany region of Italy. Now known as "The Manhattan of the Middle Ages", San Gimignano was home to 72 large towers during the 12th and 13th Centuries, only 15 of which remain standing today. These towers were originally built to offer powerful families protection from gangs and competing families of the aristocracy. However, over time, the towers became symbols of status, prestige and power, so much so that it was decreed that none may be built exceeding the height of the City Hall.
