- the skyscrapers
- the glass and iron infrastructure of the covered square
This building compound is the (new) home of Lombardy regional government, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, an architectural studio based in New York.
The headquarters include a 161 metres tower, made of reinforced concrete, steel and glass, and surrounded by several curved buildings. On Sundays you can go up to the 39th floor of the tower (the highest Italian building from 2009 to 2011), and you can feel like you are part of the Milanese skyline, which keeps on changing. In the middle of the buildings compound there is “Piazza Città di Lombardia”, the biggest European indoor square, covered by a transparent vault.
Lift to the 39th floor: every Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm. Free entrance; no reservation required.
