Italian light aircraft crashed against the Pirelli skyscraper, the tallest building in Milan. Feared at first to be a terrorist action, it was soon found that the airplane, coming from Switzerland, had some technical problems and the pilot called for mayday before crashing. The initial damage stated that some five people were killed and 70 injured.

Pirelli's skyscraper inauguration was on 4/04/1960.
