  • Edifício Martinelli - São Paulo

Built in 1929 by the wealthy Italian Giuseppe Martinelli, his namesake building was the most sumptuous of its time. His personal residence was at the top of the building with breathtaking views all over the city. With its 130 metres in height, it remained the city's highest structure until 1947 when Edifício Banespa was completed, but continues to be a landmark and a source of architectural pride for the city of São Paulo.
