At the dawn of the 20th Century, amidst eclecticism, the bourgeoisie still reflects its ambitions in the typology of the “castle”, despite being tamed by modern urban planning. Castello Pozzi, commissioned by Milanese fashion entrepreneur Claudio Tridenti Pozzi, a forerunner of the luxury brand and flagship store concept, envisioned his city as the future “fashion capital”. It was built in the latter half of the 1920s based on a design by Livio Cossutti, an architect involved in the construction of the western wing of the Galleria del Corso, a symbol of Milan’s significance.
