Pirellone. That’s how people from Milan call this building. Alberto Pirelli wanted it and Gio Ponti gave it to us and to history.
With his 32 storey, have been for long the highest building in Milan. It has been the first building tallest than the Madonna statue located on Duomo church.
It withstood a plane crush in 2002 and it is still modern as it is beautiful. It was defined one of the most elegant building in the world and probably, it’s because of it that the word skyscraper was added to dictionary.
