Parco Sempione The Branca Tower is a steel building located in the Parco Sempione in Milan. With its 108.60 ft is the sixth tallest structure in the city, but it’s the highest panoramic point,accessible to the public,  of Milan.  It was designed by Gio Ponti and built in a record time of two and a half months. The tower was inaugurated in 1933 at the V Triennale di Milano, as Torre Littoria – also called Park Tower – and was closed for visits in 1972. In 1939 on the roof was installed by EIAR a transmitter system for the radiovision (today television). The tower is back open in 2002, after a major renovation promoted by Branca, as restaurant and bar. Today the tower is used solely for panoramic purpose.
