The 191m (44-storey) Generali Tower is the second tallest skyscraper in the CityLife complex, a redevelopment area covering 366,000 m² that was formerly occupied by Milan’s fairground and exhibition facility. At the base of the tower, which has a total floor area of about 67,000 m², are a public piazza and shopping area.
Designed by Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, the Generali Tower is also known as lo Storto (“the Twisted One”) due to the helical twist about its vertical axis that becomes less pronounced the higher it rises above street level.
Generali Tower excels in all international benchmarks for efficiency while complying with Milan’s stringent local building codes. Its double-facade of sun-deflecting louvers and Low-Emissivity and Solar control glazing ensures excellent energy performance, contributing to Generali Tower’s LEED Platinum certification.
