The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.

Gio Ponti's masterpiece
Jul 2020
This skyscraper is emblematic of Milan's post-war economic boom. It was built between 1955 and 1960 as the headquarters of Pirelli Industries. With its heght of 127 metres, it was at that time one of Europe's talles reinforced concrete buildings, displaying a balance between form and structure that has yet to be surpassed. Many people love it many oters hate it, if you love architecture like me , you will definetly love it.

Nothing so special with this tower in my opinion. It is said that it is like a symbol of Milan industrial history.

A symbol from the past
Feb 2018
This Pirelli tower used to be the tallest building in Milan some decades ago. It was the symbol of industrial power in Milan. Without this history nobody would talk about the building. Yes, you can see and it is good to make a note of it and then continue.

Once magnificant

This was the first skyscraper of Milan, but nowdays it doesn't look like much compared to new and bigger ones. Still, because of the history and representation of might and industrial power of Milan and Lombardy, it's important.

The skyline of Grattacielo Pirelli was a symbol of industry in Milan. Very thin looks like a "sole fish" standing in the sky of Milan. Is located at the right of the train station square and was for a period the headquarters of Lombardia region. After September 11 was hit by a small aircraft that lost the control of the pilot giving the impression of another attack. But further investigation excluded this event and confirmed only the bad luck of the pilot.

Pirelli skyscraper

Although it's the very first built skyscraper in Italy, today it will probably not blow up your mind. Just have a look on it if you're near Milano Centrale train station.

What?
May 2016 • Couples
Seriously, what should be interesting about this tower? Even in Milano there are a couple of modern buildings that are much more worth to visit. Unless you are an architect, don't waste your time to come here.
