São Paulo - Martinelli Building, Brazil

Here is São Paulo's first skyscraper, Martinelli Building (São João Avenue), seen from the top of Banespa Building. Built in 1929 by an italian immigrant, Giuseppe Martinelli, who became rich in his new country, the old and charming landmark was dwarfened by the taller and younger neighbours.
