If I can tell my opinion there was, in the last century, a sort of subjection for the past.
The construction of huge edifices (eg. Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Mole Antonelliana in Turin), created a caracteristic landscape. The new generations did not have the courage to accept the challenge with these architectures, to improve the landscapes created by the past generations, and so the actual immobilism was created.

I go on with my disagreement: in an European context Italy made the same of other countries

Maybe your point is misleaded by thinking at the top exemples: for istance you can think at Paris and Frankfurt as ones of the most magnificent skylines in Europe... but hardly you can find towers in the rest of France or Germany

Then many countries built up their towers mainly in '90s and after 2000.
In Italy, for many reasons, all '90s period was a sort of 'stand-by' for the big urban projects.
If someone of you has been, for istance, in Rotterdam or in other Dutch cities before '95 hardly he could find towers... today the situation is completely different

Back on topic now: Varesine area is keeping rising; can anyone post pics please?
