Cathedral=symbol of the old city. UniCredit tower=symbol of the new city.







Same for the squares. A polygon for the old Piazza Duomo, a circle for the new Piazza Gae Aulenti...it's a contrast to indicate the historic/modern city

The Unicredit Tower always looks to me like the Burj Khalifa hiding behind a usual highrise. I'm not saying this to be mean. I literally often think that for a second when I'm looking at Milan's skyline.
The city is too few years in the skyscraper spotlight for now. I bet outside of skyscraper freaks, like we are, 95% of the people don't even know Milan has a substantial modern skyline now. Milan is mostly the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and fashion for them and that is perfectly fine. Also being in the overall top ten in Europe (place eight in my personal list) isn't bad at all. I don't really understand why so many are complaining about Milan's place in my list. :/
we are not complaining your eight position for Milan, absolutely not they were only some observations to some aspects of your explanation

that's true, but this is the same for all the other european cities with skylines, beacuse they are all very recent.
Moscow's cluster 5/6 years ago didn't exist.
when 95% of people in the world think about London, they think about Big Ben, London Eye, Red buses, river Themes, but not skyscrapers, beacuse till few years ago London had really few towers. just few examples...only thinking about Frankfurt, I believe people think about its skyline because it's less recent and it is the most iconic aspect of the little city

Regarding Milan.

There are several cities in europe with promising futures, but Milan is especially promising as a number of converging factors are giving it a great skyline that will keep improving.

There are a few things recently that have shown that the growth of skyscrapers in Milan is due to genuine sustainable factors and not some centrally manufactored vanity project.

If the towers were built just for show, they would have stalled when the eu economic disaster happened like other vanity projects did.
Italy was severely affected by the crisis but Milan didnt stall it's construction projects, it sped them up and added more, and all the towers went up.

This shows that they are economically viable and therefore Milan has a genuine high demand for good quality skyscrapers. This genuine demand means they will continue to build towers. The fact that all the proposals actually get built their also shows this.

The way the towers in Milan are located also indicates it is not a centrally planned image campaign, but rather catering to demand that exists at different locations right throughout the city.

All this means its highly likely that there will be continued growth for Milans skyline.

Regarding quality.
Milan has some of the best quality towers in europe. It is a fashion Capitol with a history of originality and quality so this combined with the construction boom will give Milan one of the best and we'll designed skylines in europe. Come back in 10 years and it will have passed several cities by.

I agree. Moreover the towers that were built lately had an extraordinary success, also the residential towers were sold out incredibly fast even with very high prices. For these reasons all the most important projects are going on. Porta Nuova will have more towers, City Life is growing up right now, and between these 2 cluster there is an entire new cluster to project; so we can say that the skyscraper development will go on in this city for sure.
In the latest years Milan is improving so much, not only for skyscrapers but many other projects are going on all around the city. Only few years ago the city was quite different. Milan is a very international City so the crisis was not affecting it that much, moreover it is very design oriented such as New York or London so the quality of designs is always well considered. You will see that in the next 2 or 3 years, when the 3 main towers of City Life will be completed, Milan's skyline will make already an huge step forward.

I like Milan although I have always wondered why is it so relatively unkown at a international-global level. I think it is a very under rated city that has a lot to offer.
