I love this tower despite the fact that what's making it taller is the long spire.

This spire is just too much. It looks like a poor attempt to get a 200m+ building in the city, but in fact it isn't. Luckily for Milan the first real 200m+ building is also under construction.

Finally Italy is building som really tall buildings.

For such a great country they have to make up for something.

is there any use of this spire next to high faking? Design is obviously not a reason. The spire for itself is great, but from most views it does not fit to this builing in any way.

i think design is the main reason. it looks gorgeous and the whole complex without spire would not make any sense. Have u taken a look at the project? You might notice that there are three buildings, one rising above the other. The spire is the reaching of the climax.



You can have a different taste of course, but in my humble opinion you can't say it is not part of its design.

before...

after...ther's no UC tower without the spire

it's not something just placed on the top, if you take a look you will see that the spire "starts" from the ground...the spire is almost like a fourth tower there, it's not a hat on the top of the third tower
