Jump to: navigation, search

This list ranks Bologna buildings that stand at least 50 metres (160 ft) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed.

History[edit]

Medieval towers[edit]

Bologna, main city of Emilia-Romagna, in Italy, was called the City of Towers or City of the Two Towers during the Middle Ages, because of the huge number of medieval towers. Currently some of them are still located in the city. This list does not included the Asinelli Tower, built in 1119 with an height of 97.2 meteres, the highest remaining tower, or any other medieval towers.

Modern towers[edit]

In the last decades, the city started to include more modern tall buildings, such as the 1958 "La Meridiana" building, a condominium located in Via Cellini, 90 metres (300 ft). During the seventies, in the Fiera District, were built several modern towers designed by the architect Kenzo Tange. In 2012 Unipol Tower was completed. It's the first Bologna skyscraper that exceeds 100 meters of height, and becomes the highest building in the city and currently 7th in Italy.
