Torre Unicredit e Piazza Gae Aulenti
Milan

The Unicredit Tower[1] (Torre Unicredit) is a skyscraper in Milan, Italy. With a height of 231 metres (758 ft), it is the tallest building in Italy.[2]

The building was designed by architect Cesar Pelli and was topped out on 15 October 2011, with the attachment of its spire. The building will serve as the new headquarters of UniCredit Bank.[2] The Unicredit Tower is part of a larger development of new residential and business structures in Milan's Porta Nuova district, near Porta Garibaldi railway station. Is eighth in the ranking Emporis 2012, that rewards skyscrapers for excellence in their aesthetic and functional design.[3]

It has been pointed out that the nearby Palazzo Lombardia, at 161 metres, is still the tallest building in Italy as judged by its highest usable floor. The Unicredit Tower's height includes a dramatic spire of approximately 84 metres.[4] The spire's LED lights can change colour in particular days like the flag of Italy's colours during the Italian national day Festa della Repubblica.
