Lighthouses in Italy from Google Earth

Lighthouses in Italy in Google EarthIn a post at the Google Earth Community in late-August, someone called 'bebop' from Florence, Italy posted an excellent collection of placemarks for lighthouses in Italy . He has marked 72 lighthouses and includes photos, details about the lighthouse, and sometimes even links to websites and navigational information about the light's characteristics (color, flash rate, etc.).

I found this collection interesting because in some of the placemarks you can see quite a lot of detail to these lighthouses. Many of the lighthouses have much different shapes to the ones seen in most of the United States. For example, I found one which is shaped to look like a ship's rudder. Can you find it? If so, leave a comment here with the name of the placemark.
