The Shard by Renzo Piano, London
It's quite exciting in these times of crisis and international embarassment for Italy to acknowledge that this country is much more than scandals, nice food, good music, under-age prostitutes, and a prime minister who has been defined by a British comedian (Charlie Brooker)as 'an ejaculating penis with a prime minister attached to it'. Nice indeed.
So here I proudly present the latest project by Renzo Piano: a pointed new building in the heart of London, called the shard' (literally, 'coccio') that when completed in 2012 will be the tallest skyscraper in Europe. I can't wait to see it! :-)
