Castello Cova, a historical building in Milan, is located in Via Carducci and it was planned by Adolfo Coppedè and built between 1910 and 1915. The imposing neo-medieval style building is constructed with brick and embellished with white stone. Castello Cova has five floors, the highest decorated with crenellated merlons with addition of a tower, typical element of castles. Definitely worth of note is the covered loggia on the corner between via Carducci and via San Vittore; the building has a decidedly monumental aspect.
The style of the tower inspired the architects who planned the Torre Velasca skyscraper in the centre of Milan. Close to Castello Cova lies an ancient gate of Milan, the Pusterla di Sant’Ambrogio nearby the Basilica Sant’Ambrogio. Villa la Gaeta on the lake of Como is a similar building and it was planned by Adolfo Coppedè as well.
