The Pirelli Tower (127 m) is one of the landmarks of post-WWII Milan. Completed in 1958, it used to be the tallest skyscraper in Italy; nowadays, it is just the 4th tallest building in Milan. While you cannot enter the building, it is worth seeing face to face if you enjoy modern, essential but elegant architecture. The design of the building, by Giò Ponti, is appreciated and, by the way, it was the inspiration for the MetLife Building in NYC.
The easiest way to reach the Pirelli building is to take any metro to Central Station. The whole area (including the station itself) deserves a visit if you're not in a hurry in Milan. In fact, if you walk from Central Station to Garibaldi Station (which is about 30 minutes or less), you will have the opportunity to meet most of Milan's newest shiny skyscrapers!
