It is certainly impressive, and imposing, but let's be honest it's not pretty! You can see it from all around the city (even from my hotel room - see pic) so no need to "visit" it... and sooner or later when lost in the confusing network of streets that make up Milan you will find yourself confronted by it.

Rather divided are opinions about this building, but you can hardly be indifferent about this unmissable structure.

Anyone interested in architecture or brutalism should spend some time visiting the Torre Velasca. Great to see from the outside close up- just a shame you can’t go inside.

Modern interpretation of the Torre del Filarete present at the Sforza castle , the skyscraper takes the name of the Spanish governor Juan Fernandez de Velasco to whom the square where it was built after the bombings of the second war that destroyed most of the ancient buildings in the square. Immediately after its construction it was immediately hated by the citizens who considered it monstrous, with the passing of the years the hatred turned into love. I like it.

When we took part in the Duomo and rooftop tour, I noticed this giant clunky tower that somehow didn't fit into the cityscape. It was as if a nuclear bomb had been thrown into the city, and now it's mushroom cloud was emerging on the horizon. Later on, I had a closer look and found it more disturbing than the Palazzo Lombardy or Torre Hadid since I can see their class, their charm and accept them. Don’t ask me why, since I don’t know the answer. Anyway, this is a matter of individual judgment. As an architectural solution, it is brilliant, and within its own confines is not only gripping but also beautiful,- I admit that- but despite that, it is unsuitable in Milan, just like a miner's helmet in a theatre. It would do a miracle in a major American city, but not here — something like putting a Yucca in a bed of daffodils, hyacinths, and tulips.
