In Italy we don't have built skyscrapers because it was not in the culture of the Italian people.
We have Palazzi, Churches. Something new and innovative scares people. Imo

Mmmh...

I don't know: Milan in '50s was one of the first cities in Europe to build highrises, in '80s Naples built its CBD, then you can find higrises in many places

So this is not Italy? (Sarcasm inside)



Obviously not a hig-rise as they are today, but the vertical and tall element is there.

Sometimes people forget part of the past, tradition and culture and make them as they like to think they were.

I agree with Skymino. Italia built lots of innovative buildings and other constructions during its wonderful past. Romans, Middle Age, Renaissance, also during the fascist regime.

But through the second half of the XX century?

Nothing import compared to the previous and worldwide known jewels.

Milano: nothing impressive since 1950 (by and large). Roma: nothing impressive since '20s. Firenze: nothing impressive since 1600. Venezia: nothing impressive for centuries. Napoli: something in the '80s but because I want to be gentle with my country.

Nothing impressive compered to what Paris, London, Madrid (only to mention Europe) have done.

Milano is, perhaps, going to do something important. A transformation after years of abandon. And maybe a new way to think about the city. And hopefully about the entire country.

Can somebody say that we didn't have many many many problems with the acceptans of all the new projects (expetially Citylife complex)?

Sorry if I made some mistakes.
