From the top (41 and 42nd floors - TERRAO ITLIA with 04 restaurants) of the EDIFCIO ITLIA/ITALY BUILDING, a view of the CENTRO VELHO/OLD DOWNTOWN of the city of SO PAULO. Now looking towards the south, once more, on the left, the building of the BIBLIOTECA MUNICIPAL MRIO DE ANDRADE/MRIO DE ANDRADE MUNICIPAL LIBRARY and the towers and buildings in the upper right corner are in the AVENIDA PAULISTA/PAULISTA AVENUE.

ONE WS VERSION :
A slightly different pov, more to the southeast!

ANOTHER WS VERSION :
Same pov, closer look, a "dive" into the sea of concrete! Well, you might reach that pool on top of the pink building!
The yellow building, on the left side of this image, quite centered, is the EDIFCIO JOELMA/JOELMA BUILDING that also caught fire on february 1st, 1974: a real urban tragedy with 179 FATAL VICTIMS and 300 INJURED PEOPLE! From that time on, SO PAULO learned its lesson about fire security! See
