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.

I past this building 2-3-4 times every day as I went back and forth between the Hilton Hotel to Stazione Centrale. And each time I looked up at its sleek design. It is now a government office so can not enter, but its location across from the train station is a great landmark for this area. Also if you are... More

This skyscraper is a kind of Landmark located just in front of Stazione Centrale Milano (Central Station). As this houses Regional Government of Lombardia, we cannot freely access the building but whenever you are about to get lost near the Station, you can look for this building.

Staying in Stazione Centrale

Neighborhood Profile
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.
