    Palácio Anhangabaú

    Pal��cio Anhangaba��

    Built in 1939, this imposing building in an unmistakable Italian fascist-period style was in fact designed by one of Mussolini's official architects, Marcello Piacentini. It was originally named Edifício Matarazzo, after the company that first occupied it, Indústrias Reunidas Francesco Matarazzo. In 2004, the building became the São Paulo city hall and was renamed Palácio Anhangabaú. Its position over the Viaduto do Chá, the bridge connecting Praça do Patriarca with Praça Ramos de Azevedo, makes it even more imposing.
