Centro Direzionale di Napoli / Naples Business Center – Italy
The Centro Direzionale is a service center in Naples, Italy. The district is mainly devoted to business.
The project of the Centro Direzionale dates back to 1964. It was designed in 1982 by Japanese architect Kenzo Tange.
The Center is in what was traditionally the worst part of the city, adjacent to the Poggioreale prison, the largest prison in southern Italy.
The Center is meant to accommodate most, if not all, of the administrative offices of the city of Naples, such as the new Hall of Justice.
The Centro Direzionale is home to the tallest building in southern Italy, the Telecom Italia Tower.
