As a critical industrial center of Italy, Milan was target of continuous carpet bombing during World War II. The city was bombed even after Pietro Badoglio surrendered to the allied forces in 1943. In fact, Milan was part of Mussolini's Italian Social Republic puppet state, and an important command centre of the German Army stationed in Italy. When war in Italy was finally over, April 25, 1945, Milan was heavily damaged and entire neighborhoods such as Precotto and Turro were destroyed. After the war, the city was reconstructed and has again become an important financial and industrial centre of Italy. See also: Rulers of Milan. More than the 30% of the buildings were completely destroyed and another 30% where so heavly damaged that were demolished in the first years after the war, so that after the war 60% of the buildings were lost. The most part of that buildings are located in the city centre. Hundreds of buildings built in the last 1.000 years were lost.

Sad history, but at least the street network has been preserved in Milan
unlike in some East European countries where demolishion gave way to
nasty urban developments.

Here's a video featuring a slideshow of snapshots from today's Milan. The author cites 1943 "heavy bombing" of the city in video description.
