Castello Cova

Castello Cova ("Cova Castle"), also known as Palazzo Viviani Cova is a historical building in Milan, close to the Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio. Built between 1910 and 1915 on a design by architect Adolfo Coppedè (brother of the more famous Gino Coppedè), it is an example of Gothic Revival architecture, with guelph-style merlons decorating the external rusticated walls as well as the middle-ages styled tower. The tower of Castello Cova was reportedly an inspiration for the architects of the Velasca Tower, a landmark skyscraper in the centre of Milan.
