The Pirelli Tower is a high-rise building, which for a long time was the tallest in the city.
In 1950, the president of the Pirelli concern; proposed to build the first skyscraper in Milan on the site where the first production facilities of the company were located in the 19th century.
The tower was designed by Gio Ponti with the assistance of Pier Luigi Nervi, who insisted on a revolutionary departure from the traditional of that time, rectangular skyscrapers.
For the construction of the office building, reaching a height of 127 meters, more than 60 000 tons of concrete were used. The main part of the work was carried out in 1956-1960.
