Velasca Tower, Milan, Italy

Two years ago I had to go to Milan for work.
Just out of the city subway, I raised my head and I suddenly saw it in all its majesty.

Velasca Tower

It was built in 1954 by the BBPR architectural partnership, in the city centre of Milan.

The tower, approximately 100 metres tall, has a peculiar and characteristic mushroom-like shape.

As a consequence, the shape of this building is the result of a modern interpretation of the typical Italian medieval castle.

The tower is located in the city centre of Milan near the Duomo (Milan Cathedral) between Corso di Porta Romana and via Larga.
