Updates Teatro Lirico
original design > Giuseppe Piermarini (1776-1779), Antonio Cassi Ramelli (1938-1940)
investment > 16.5-17 million euros (refurbishment)


Teatro Lirico (old pic)

The refurbishment of the old Teatro Lirico is accompanied by an innovation experiment to offset the incovenience that is always caused by a restoration or construction site. The intention is to establish a partecipatory process of apprecciation for historical, technical and artistic elements that are of particular cultural value to citizens and hence the entire city. This experiment was inaugurated at the Lirico with an amazing show by Italian fashion designer Antonio Marras.


The "cantiere-evento" is a process studied to turn an urban incovenience into an opportunity of learning, appreciating and popularising. It benefits the civic environment where the work is being done. It makes the work site become a workshop-atelier for listening and communication. Its purpose is to encourage inhabitants to participate directly in a space, turning it into a bridge between the past of its design, the present of its construction and the future of its management.


Early this year, the City of Milan declared the Teatro Lirico a building of "greatest interest to the city in cultural and social terms".

San Paolo Converso Church transformed into a tennis court


San Paolo Converso Church has been transformed into a functioning tennis court. The church built in 1546-1580 for the convent of the Order of the Angeliche, features 16th-century frescoes on its walls and a ceiling painted by the Campi brothers. The Baroque facade was designed in 1613 by Giovan Battista Crespi.


The floor, net, rackets, tennis balls, iced tea, and coaches are all part of an interactive art piece named Untitled (Plot for Dialogue), which encourages visitors to play tennis in the deconsecrated church. The goal of this initiative is to fill the space with a new social practice not of receiving messages from on high, but engaging in a two-way exchange and play of equals. Visitors become more than spectators, practicing with the coaches, the inhabit their bodies in coordinated action.


In the past, the church hosted other exhibitions and events. Artists of different ages, places, and creative languages were called to develop projects that interact with the space's historical, architectural and symbolic features.



The Church is free and open to the public from Thursday to Saturday.

FS, Cdp aim to revolutionate public transports of Italy's largest cities.


"We aim to build at least 7 or 8 subway lines in Milan and Rome" said FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Chief Executive Officer, Renato Mazzoncini. "The project can be financed by putting together the resources invested by Italian railway state company and Italy's Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, for an estimated total of about 15 billion euros" he explained. "We are just launching a new phase which will lead us towards an improvement of public transports in Italy's largest cities" said Mazzoncini. Naples and other important cities should be included in the plan in the next years.

The agreement was signed in Rome by FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Chief Executive Officer Renato Mazzocini and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti Chief Executive Officer Fabio Gallia represents a response to the growing need to invest in urban transportation, a crucial sector for sustainable growth.

The accord signals the commitment of FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti to actively cooperate in identifying and promoting projects related to new works to be carried out (greenfield initiatives) and to expanding existing infrastructures (brownfield initiatives), using an approach which encourages the participation of private capital, including public-private partnership schemes (PPPs). In this context, both companies are committed not only to improving urban mobility, but also giving impetus to a process of the urban transformation of Italian cities through the creation of a network of new generation integrated services, in favor of the individual person as well as the community.

The role of cities as an economic growth hub and growth generator is significant and increasing. Around 68% of the Italian population lives in urban areas where over 40% of Italian GDP is produced. The development of metropolitan networks is a strategic factor in integrated and sustainable collective mobility that can reduce levels of urban congestion and pollutant emissions, with a positive impact on productivity levels and socio-economic integration between the city center and periphery. The infrastructure gap to be filled is significant and with a notable impact on the competitiveness of Italian urban centers.


"Local infrastructure development is at the heart of the our strategy to support the country's sustainable growth. The partnership with FS Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane operates in this direction with the aim of accelerating investment in urban mobility, pushing for a process of 'urban transformation' with multiple positive, economic, social, and environmental impacts helping local communities." said CEO of Cassa Depositi and Prestiti, Fabio Gallia.

"FS Italiane, having facilitated high-speed travel between Italian cities with our Frecce trains, now commits itself to overcoming the urban infrastructure gap by designing, implementing and managing, in collaboration with local partners and local authorities, the necessary infrastructure" added Mazzoncini.

UnipolSai Building
Milan | Zone 9

design > Massimo Roj Architects
developer > Unipol
heights > 53 m - 15 m

Construction work are started in this building at Porta Nuova district. Located in Via Castillia, next to Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) and in front of upcoming Library of Trees public park, the building was not completed and abandoned by many years, giving it a reason to become one of the most 'hatred' constructions in the city.

Just a year ago, however, Italian insurance group Unipol -which also will complete its new highrise in 2019- has bought the building in order to give it a new life. The new project, developed by Massimo Roj Architects, is an important restoration intervention that will change the image of the building and will increase energetic performances and overall efficiency.

New project

The office complex, consisting in 2 bodies, will host 1000 workplaces. The architectural solutions aim to reduce the environmental impact of the built area and cut the consumption, from the innovative glass facade that, thanks to a high performance photovoltaic silicon film, will produce clean energy, up to a system that exploits renewable energy to ventilate the interiors. The photocatalytic action of the external surfaces, together with the green areas of the project, will reduce the local air pollution. The result is a symbol building designed for Unipol, an international best practice thought for users and community wealth.

Milan will ban fossil-fueled vehicles by 2030.


"The City of Milan plans to ban all petrol- and diesel-fueled vehicles by 2030" the Mayor announced today. The move marks an acceleration in plans to switch to electric vehicles and make more use of public transports as well as services like bike sharing in a city often obliged to impose temporary bans due to surges in particle pollution in the air.

Starting from October 2018, Euro 3 diesel vehicles will be banned from the city center. New cameras will be installed to enrich the "Big Brother" system of the City of Milan by 2019. While Euro 4 vehicles are scheduled to be banned by 2020. Further steps will lead the city to reduce emissions to zero by 2030. The commitment also include a change of the boilers in public buildings and all the social housings.

"It is a fundamental step towards a more sustainable future. We'll continue to work to propose structural measures with the goal to have a more better air, for ourselves and for future generations" added the Mayor of Milan.

San Pellegrino Factory
Milan GMA | San Pellegrino Terme 24016 BG


design > Bjarke Ingels, Atelier Verticale, West8, Schlaich Bergermann Partner, Front, Arup, Squint/Opera, MIC, BIG Ideas, WET, Studio Piero Castiglioni
client > Sanpellegrino S.p.A.
investment > €90 million




Copenhagen and New York-based architecture firm, Bjarke Ingels Group, has beat a shortlist of MVRDV, Snøhetta and Architetto Michele De Lucchi to design offices and plant of San Pellegrino, the Italian brand of mineral water and assorted real-fruit sodas. Project includes the San Pellegrino Experience Lab, where visitors can learn how mineral water is produced.




"Rather than imposing a new identity on the existing complex, we propose to grow it out of the complex" said Ingels of the design, which features a series of buildings with huge arched walkways that frame the Alpine landscape. "Like the mineral water itself – the new San Pellegrino Factory and Experience Lab will seem to spring from its natural source" he added. "We propose to wash away the traditional segregation between front and back of house, to create a seamless continuity between the environment of production and consumption, preparation and enjoyment."

The design is intended to reference traditional Italian architecture, reinventing the arcade, piazza and portico to create the factory and offices, which are set on the bank of a river.




"BIG proposes an architecture that offers a fresh take on an ancient wisdom, revisiting the classic elements of Italian architecture and urbanism" said the Italian company, "the arcade, the viale, the piazza and the portico to create an architectural environment where production and consumption, nature and architecture, outside and inside, making and enjoying are accommodated in an integrated way to elevate the experience for the visitor as well as the staff."









Construction work is expected to begin in 2018.

CAP Group Headquarters
Milan | Zone 6

design > Claudio Lucchin & Associated Architects
height > 27.4 meters
client > CAP Holding SpA

A new headquarters for CAP Group, a public corporation owned by the local authorities that leads water service in the municipalities of Milan metro area. The building is expected to be built on the same site of CAP Group's offices.


The access area is embellished by the presence of water: a large pool accompanies the visitors inside the new building. In this new urban void emerges this large volume that floats on water: a sort of modern "ark". The ark is "home" but also "vessel". A "vessel" able to survive the cataclysms to be eternally rediscovered by humanity, and which contains in itself the knowledge and evolutionary potential of humanity towards the awareness that in order to continue living on Earth, we must protect it, take care of it and safeguard its resources.


The building has a solid and compact shape, but in continuous movement, given the continuous change of perspective. This follows the concepts of stability and union of the CAP Group but, at the same time, declares that the group is dynamic, due to an intrinsic need for technical updating and improvement of customer service.


Construction work is expected to begin in 2018.
