Torre Branca

Milano Tower designed by Gio Ponti

Parco Sempione
Viale Luigi Camoens 2

Torre Branca, with its 108.6 meters, is the 10th highest structure in Milan. You can see it standing out through the trees of Parco Sempione, near Triennale - Palazzo dell’Arte. Its distinctive hexagonal design structure, made of special steel pipes (Dalmine), was designed by Gio Ponti and Cesare Chiodi. 


Its modern elevator allows you to climb to the belvedere in less than one minute. During terse days, from the Platform located at the top of the Tower, you can admire the whole City skyline as well as great part of Lombardy plain, Alps and Apennines.


It was inaugurated in 1933, during the 5th edition of the Triennale, with the name of “Torre Littoria”. Following a major renovation work sponsored by the company "Distilleria Fratelli Branca”, the tower is now open to visitors with the name of "Torre Branca" and hosts some radio repeaters.
