This is a very common building style/solution in rural areas in the Nordics. There is even a Wiki article about it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sod_roof

Don't you have anything similar in Southern Europe?

this is beautiful but I can't understand if those plants are real trees or just some kind of shrub (I hope it's the correct term)

Forget London's monolithic new Shard, all eyes will surely be on the Bosco Verticale when it opens in Milan at the end of this year. The new skyscraper promises to bring a hectare of forest into the city's central business district, as well as hundreds of new homes. Rather than cold steel and glass, the surface of this high-rise will ripple with organic life.

Made of two towers – one 80m high, the other 112m – Bosco Verticale is currently being planted with 730 specially cultivated trees, 11,000 groundcover plants and 5,000 shrubs. One of the principal architects, Stefano Boeri, calls it both "radical" and an "experiment"; a reaction against the "high parallelepipeds, clad by glass, steel or ceramic" he's witnessed in Dubai.

I have also noticed that it seems to be rather common with massive roof gardens (with trees) in Milan on ordinary buildings too.

it must be pointed out that to put trees on a building is hardly just a contemporary trend. You know, the gardens of Babylon.
Anyway, someone in the comments has mentioned the torre guinigi






maybe it's difficult to make grow trees on a building as the article says, but in a case like this I think it looks not bad at all.

I love how Italians seems to have this obsession with planting trees and bushes everywhere. Also look at the buildings I posted from Milan. That they are blessed with so many great historic buildings to put their trees just makes it even better.
