Palazzo Lombardia ("Lombardy Building") is a complex of buildings in Milan, Italy, including a 39-storey, 161.3 m (529 ft) tall skyscraper. It is the main seat of the government of Lombardy. It is located in the Centro Direzionale di Milano ("Directional Centre of Milan") district, north-west of the city centre.
It was first inaugurated on 22 January 2010, and officially completed on 21 March 2010. After its completion, the Regione Lombardia skyscraper was briefly the tallest skyscraper both in Milan and in Italy, being taller than both the Telecom Italia Tower in Naples and the Pirelli Tower in Milan. It lost its supremacy to the Unicredit Tower (also located in Milan) in 2011.
Palazzo Lombardia was designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the winners of an international design competition in 2004, with Henry N. Cobb as design partner. The building won the 2012 International Architecture Award for the best new global design.
