The Pirelli Tower stands proudly on the north-east side of Milan and dates back to 1955, when it was designed and built by a leading group of Italian architects. Taking around five years to complete and quickly became a symbol of postwar reconstruction in Milan, the Grattacielo Pirelli (Pirelli Tower) has become affectionately known as 'Pirellone'

Milan's Grattacielo Pirelli (Pirelli Tower) is 127 metres / 417 feet high and was actually the world's largest reinforced concrete skyscraper for a number of years. The tower stands on the site where Giovan Battista Pirelli built his first tyre factory in 1872 and was the first building in Milan that was taller than the Madonna on the Duomo. One of the most interesting attractions at Milan's Grattacielo Pirelli (Pirelli Tower) is the small statue of the Virgin Mary on the roof of the tower, as a mark of respect to Milan's Duomo Cathedral.
