The world’s largest building, which can span over one kilometer (one mile) in length, was built in Italy by Italian architects and materials suppliers Valspar.
The 6,000-square-meter (37,500-square foot) tower at the site of the former St. Maria delle Croce church in St. Mark’s Square was completed in March 2017.
The tower was designed by Giuseppe Di Stefano of St. Martin de Porres, the architect who also designed the Empire State Building.
Valspa is the largest of the three Italian builders of the World’s Largiest Building, which were also built in the 1980s by Italian firms, namely, Giuseppino Dalla Vecchia and Guglielmo Mazzucato.
The two other companies built the towers of the Vatican, in Rome, and the Casa dei Sattivitina in Rome.

They were also designed to have a thin, transparent facade that could be used to create a kind of domed ceiling.
Velspar’s plan for the towers was to create one of the largest residential buildings in the world.
The plans were unveiled in May 2017.
In the past, Velspa has built other towers for the Vatican and the Italian cities of Catania and Pisa.

Verspar built the building because it was the only way to create the kind of buildings needed for the modern city.
The architects said they were also influenced by the Vatican.
They wanted to create something that would stand the test of time, they said in a statement.
Vets paralegal Giusepio De Carli told The Associated Press that the building was a reflection of the modern times.
He said the building also had a symbolic significance for Italians.
It was built as an architectural masterpiece in the midst of the Italian Revolution of 1919-1920.
The building, he said, was meant to be a symbol of a new and modern Italian city, one that was built from the ground up, and that it would be able to withstand the storms and be protected from the weather.
The buildings design was based on the structure of a cathedral, De Carlelli said.
The structures height and the weight of the steel plates were designed so that they would not fall and damage the exterior of the building, De Lari said.

They chose to use several materials and to use a mix of metals for the exterior and interior of the buildings, De Rosso said.
Vatspar is currently in negotiations with the city of Florence for the building’s future.
