Give a look to the reading room under the roof
(in this place you can study or simply read the historical books of Feltrinelli Foundation's archives)


The archives:
200,000 precious books on different fields (from arts to sciences);
17,500 periodical magazines from Italian Risorgimento to globalization;
1,500,000 historical documents


Feltrinelli bookstore divided in thematic areas / cafeteria


Fondazione Feltrinelli: an open space for the city

The bulldozer demolished former Tamoil pump, leaving the area free.
So the last piece of Herzog and De Meuron's project will be finally built

Archaeologists have found portions of the ancient Spanish Walls
















Over history, Milan has had three sets of city walls built around it in succession: the Roman Walls, the Medieval Walls, and the Spanish Walls. Their traces form concentric rings around the heart of the city; with the Medieval Walls and the Spanish Walls now followed by a route of ring roads: the Cerchia dei Navigli and the Cerchia dei Bastioni respectively.

The so-called 'Mura Spagnole' (Spanish Walls) were built between 1546 and 1560 in obedience to the will of Ferrante Gonzaga, city governor during the Spanish rule of Milan.
