You are not knowing exactly: Serena is referring to the observation point at km 2.550 of the SS 12dir (variant of the road of brennero) , not the one on km 339 on the SS 1 (via aurelia)(just above the railway overpass) The views are completely different, beside all the one you are talking about is neither a tower or a mountain, but just an overpass (BTW: this wiev, stylized, is the logo of a local bank)
