Castello Cova, Milan

3.3
Castello Cova ("Cova Castle"), also known as Palazzo Viviani Cova ("Viviani-Cova Palace") is a historical building in Milan, northern Italy, 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. The Pusterla di Sant'Ambrogio, an ancient postern of the Medieval walls of Milan facing Castello Cova, was recreated in the late 1930s in a style that matches the Revival style of the Castello.
