Barolo Building Barolo Alleyway Barolo Building Barolo Building

This building is characterized by a passage (“Barolo”) named after a very powerful textile businessman who entrusted the construction of this stunning Romanesque-Neo-gothic palace to the architect Mario Palanti. Its inauguration took place in 1923, and for a very long time remained the tallest building in the city. It is peculiar for having a different designs on each floor and a central dome with a lighthouse composed of 300,000 spark plugs, which has been lighted in some significant occasions, for instance, the fight Firpo v. Dempsey G. Currently, it is occupied by administrative offices and law and construction firms, all enjoying privileged views of the city.
