The UniCredit Tower (Torre UniCredit) is a skyscraper in Milan, Italy. At 231 metres (758 ft), it is the tallest building in Italy.

The building was designed by architect César Pelli and reached its full height on 15 October 2011 when the spire was attached. The building is the headquarters of UniCredit, Italy's largest bank by assets, and is part of a larger development of new residential and business structures in Milan's Porta Nuova district, near Porta Garibaldi railway station. The tower ranked eighth in the Emporis 2012, that rewards skyscrapers for excellence in their aesthetic and functional design.

One of the usual combinations is Italian flag.
