The plan, approved by City of Milan, Regione Lombardia, Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, Rete Ferroviaria Italiana and FS Sistemi Urbani, provides for the redevelopment of seven former railway yards. The plan is included in the big urban transform expected to revolutionate Milan over the next decade.


Farini > 618,733 sqm / 6,659,986 sqft
Porta Romana > 216,614 sqm / 2,331,614 sqft
San Cristoforo > 158,256 sqm / 1,703,453 sqft
Porta Genova > 89,137 sqm / 959,462.6 sqft
Greco-Breda > 73,526 sqm / 791,427.2 sqft
Lambrate > 70,187 sqm / 755,486.6 sqft
Rogoredo > 21,132 sqm / 227,462.9 sqft


In particular, the plan envisages the creation of new parks; Circle Line with stations; skyscrapers and lowrise buildings to be used for offices, residences, retail, entertainment, culture and services.

Circle Line

The agreement outlines functional vocations for each area. In particular:
Farini > skyscrapers, services, etc; park (+300,000 sqm)
Porta Romana > towers, culture, etc; park (+90,000 sqm)
San Cristoforo > naturalistic oasis
Porta Genova > fashion and design; green areas
Greco > university, services; green areas
Lambrate > university, services; green areas
Rogoredo > social housing, services.

Green areas. Creation of new urban parks.

The next step, to be done within 6 months, is the launch of an international competition for the realization of a master plan. The first area to be redesigned is Farini (the former rail yard close to Porta Nuova).

Progress is being made in plans to reopen Milan's canal system.
HISTORY
The trails of the idea to make Milan accessible from the sea are lost in the chronicles of times that date before the times of the design and construction of the first artificial navigable canal. The canals were a passing route not only for the merchandise on its’ way to Milan but also for the marble of Candoglia used for the construction of the Milan's Cathedral and, in more recent times, a transporting route for the rolls of paper used by the typewriters of Corriere della Sera.

The construction of the Naviglio Grande begun in 1179 and in 1209 the Naviglio arrived to Milan. Since the first day of the construction the best engineers undertook the project and even today it is possible to admire the innovative system of dams conceived by Leonardo da Vinci at the end of 15th Century. Once upon a time: a view of the Navigli, the navigable canals of Milan. It took only 35 years, from 1439 to 1475, to build 90 kilometres of canals on the Milan territory made navigable thanks to the existence of 25 valleys, a characteristic no other city has. The development of the system didn’t stop at this point. On the contrary, when Leonardo da Vinci begun working on the project in 1482, the Martesana was improved and he also started setting up a new system of canals that would make navigation from Valtellina to Milan possible.

It was 1482 when Leonardo da Vinci, as soon as he arrived in Milan, was assigned by Ludwig II il Moro with the task to study a system that would make the navigation from Lake Como to Milan possible. Leonardo, who already designed the system of the dams in order to solve the problem of height difference of the territory making the navigation possible didn't miss the chance to draw some sketches that are preserved today in the Museum of Navigli. Since then the Navigli were characterized by a continuous development particulary by the construction of new canals and dams. This is how the canals' system became a fundamental means of communication for the city of Milan. The historical canals have been closed when the historical city plan changed between 1929 and the 1960s.

The first reports of the technical committee, including feasibility studies, will be on the mayor's desk by the end of the month. One concerns the underground tunnel to carry water from the Naviglio Martesana to the Darsena, following the old route of the waterway's inner ring. The second report is the one being prepared by Milan's transport authority, AMAT, including data on the reduced access to the city centre due to work in Area C, in force since February. It also includes projections on the effects of a hypothetical closure to private traffic of the roads running alongside the inner canal ring route, in anticipation of the reopening of the watercourse.

Confirming that discussion of the Navigli issue is near to completion, on Wednesday the mayor, during a live Facebook broadcast, said: "I was committed to holding a referendum at the end of the year" or "in January or February 2018" at the latest. There are two possibilities: "a total reopening, or the opening of individual sections, but creating the conditions for a total opening". The wording of the referendum text is however still to be decided. Sala added: "We will assess the situation, will tell you how long it will take, how much it will cost, what disruption it will cause and what the end result will be". It will be a decision taken together with the councillors: "I'm too biased, I admit; I've written a book on the Navigli; I really believe in this project and think it makes a lot of sense".

Sample: Ponte delle Gabelle with new canals

The underground aqueduct, said Professor Antonello Boatti, one of the technicians, is important to the city, independently of the re-opening of the canals. The project involves separating the River Seveso and the Naviglio Martesana, which in the 1960s were merged into a single canal in Via Melchiorre Gioia, where it intersects Via Carissimi, so that they can travel along a straight line as far as the intersection with Viale Monte Santo. Here, they will merge to become the Redefossi canal. In essence, the Seveso will continue to flow through the Cavo Redefossi, which will also be the subject of two maintenance projects amounting to €15m, while the Martesana will resume its original route along Via San Marco, where there is already a channel, and then from Via Senato down to the Darsena. Its waters are clean, and besides contributing to the maintenance of the port of Milan, will flow along the Naviglio Pavese to irrigate the fields, rather than be dispersed as at present in the River Lambro and then the Po. That's not all. "The presence of the main channel will be useful for residents who use geothermal heating/cooling systems with heat pumps and drain the (clean) groundwater into the sewer", the technicians clarified. This is clean water that today paradoxically ends up in the purification plant. The main channel will also allow partial openings to be made in the inner sections of the Naviglio, from the Incoronata basin to that of Via Varenna or Via Locati.

A heated debate has been taking place at City Hall. Views range from the extreme position of the Green Party's Elena Grandi, who wants "to close off the route taken by inner ring of the canal system, already affected by work on the M4 metro line, to private traffic immediately", to that of the Lega's Simone Di Gennaro, who is concerned about balancing costs against benefits.

A garden with four seasons at same time? Now it is possible in Milan.



The project is located within Citylife's new park.



The Garden of the Four Seasons is an enclosed garden in Milan where all four seasons coexist with each other concurrently throughout the year. The project leverages a new system for high-precision climate control, by which incoming solar energy is partially collected through photovoltaics and partially redistributed among the different seasonal areas, with zero net energy consumption. The project aims at reclaiming a closer relationship between urban dwellers and nature's cycles.

The EFTE membrane structure is covered with photovoltaic cells, permitting an allyear-round production of clean energy. Thanks to a heat exchanger, such energy can be used to cool space in the winter area, or to heat the summer space. The system works much like a refrigerator would do, with cold coming out from one side, and heat from the opposite one. Further heath transfer between pavilions, when necessary, allows each pavilion to achieve the desired intermediate environmental conditions.
