You both are wrong

Assuming that Copenhagen metro is not heavy metro (I don't think it is, but my personal opinion on the difference between light and heavy metro is that it is 'illogical' and pointless) Milan's convoys, which are the same type of trains than Copenhagen's, will be longer and with more capacity.
Despite this they're shorter and with less capacity (about 50%) of the ones in current metro lines in Milan (which have, actually, very capable convoys with about 1200 pax each).
There are traditional metro lines in the world with similar capacity. And they're not authomatic metro lines (which increases the theoretical capacity of the line)

And what about M4 (the future line to Linate), will that have the same smaller capacity as M5, or will it be similar to the current metro lines?

M4 will use the same technology as M5, but it seems that the trains will be longer: 5 vagons instead of 4 as for M5. In this way the train will be aprox.60m long.

That's right, but at the same time entrances are the easiest part to fix... somewhere in the far, far future

Meanwhile on M1
Quote:
AT SESTO FS TERMINUS. NEW PROJECTS FROM CADORNA TO RHO-FIERA
Metro, in the crowdest stations new platform barriers will be installed
The first barrier on "red" line is operational. Bruno Rota,President of Atm : «More protection for commuters»

MILANO - The wall of aluminum and unbreakable glass runs along the platform and follows the curve of the tunnel: it divides the pedestrian corridor from the ditch of the tracks. It is a linear gate 105 meters long, a divider installed to raise the quality standards of the old subway stations: "It is a system of risk prevention."

Quote:
[...]
Atm has activated the "platform doors" on Thursday morning at the terminus of Sesto Fs, the first act of a trial that will be brought in other critical stops of the underground network in the next months , the crowdest and most problematic points, as Cadorna interchange station and Rho-Fiera terminal

Did they change the colour of the interiors or is the picture untrue?

Is there any other subway service in Europe that operates with a double Y (on both ends) like MM2?

The S2 to Mariano C. seems less frequent, do they have at least 1 train per 1hr?

@Suburbanist, yes there's even worst, like the "northern line" in London, but also the lines 2/7, 4/5 and 3/6 in Munich works the same way.

I don't know if every train departing from Abbiategrasso goes to the same terminus (for example cologno) or if they are alternated.

There's a fifth terminus on line MM2, is Gobba, where a train aout of three stops in low traffic hours.
