Piazza Gae Aulenti

Square Milan, Italy

An innovative square Piazza Gae Aulenti

The contemporary Gae Aulenti square has a circular shape with a diameter of 100 meters and it's located north of Milan; built 6 meters above the street level, it was designed by the Argentine architect Cesar Pelli. The square was inaugurated in 2012 and dedicated to the architect and designer Gae Aulenti. The result is a splendidly crafted, fitting contemporary to Italy’s grand tradition of refined Piazzas. The modern and innovative aspect of Piazza Gae Aulenti lives in harmony with the buildings that surround it and with the area’s illumination; when the sun sets, the square comes alive with a show of lights, music and water. Piazza Gae Aulenti has become one of the top attractions in Milan; Unicredit Tower, the ultramodern skyscraper occupied by the namesake Italian bank, overlooks the square: to enjoy one of the best panoramic views of Milan, you can climb up to the top of this building.
