Torre Branca, Milan, Italy

Torre Branca, formerly known as Torre Littoria, was designed by Giò Ponti and Cesare Chiodi. Located in Sempione Park, this iron observation tower (108.6 meters) was built in 68 days and opened in 1933, in occasion of the 5th edition of the Milano Triennale Design Exhibition. From the top is possible to see Milan's new skyline, historic centre, the Alps and more. Under the tower there is a café/disco restaurant by fashion group Roberto Cavalli.

I'm seeing a lot of pride for observation towers in one's own country.

So I think I should bring up some American observation towers:

I like how the Milad Tower stands out against the mountains in the background. The lights are nice, too.
