From the top (41 and 42nd floors - TERRAÇO ITÁLIA with 04 restaurants) of the EDIFÍCIO ITÁLIA/ITALY BUILDING, a view of the CENTRO VELHO/OLD DOWNTOWN of the city of SÃO PAULO. Now looking towards the northwest, on the right, a green spot, it's the LARGO DO AROUCHE/AROUCHE SQUARE, in the center, with some green around too, a partial view of the ELEVADO COSTA E SILVA - O MINHOCÃO/COSTA E SILVA ELEVATED EXPRESSWAY - THE "BIG WORM" (that links the west and east sides of the city) and in the horizon line, on the left, the PICO DO JARAGUÁ/JARAGUÁ PEAK, where two important highways pass by, going to the northwestern regions of the State of São Paulo and passing by CAMPINAS, my city: RODOVIAS ANHANGUERA e BANDEIRANTES/ANHANGUERA and BANDEIRANTES HIGHWAYS.

ONE WS VERSION :
A closer look, where one can see the MINHOCÃO/BIG WORM and the PICO DO JARAGUÁ/JARAGUÁ PEAK, the highest point in the city (1,135 meters above sea level)! Its name means "THE LORD OF THE VALLEY" in the Tupi Native Language! It's part of the SERRA DA CANTAREIRA/CANTAREIRA MOUNTAIN RANGE!
