I really think that one of the finest skyscraper in europe is this one from Milan, Torre Pelli, recently completed by architect Cesar Pelli:







c'mon people, ain't it Gorgeous? How come it has not been nominated yet?

I noticed that this tower was already mantioned as "Torre Unicredit" and maybe "Porta Nuova". I think it desrves a nomination for sure!

If it was not clear Enough, my vote goes to:

Torre Pelli, or Torre Unicredit, or Torre Garibaldi or... (the problem with this skyscraper is that every forumer is using a different name for it, I hope it gets a nomination).

Majorana was known for not seeking credit for his discoveries, considering his work to be banal.
