The building in the picture is not Galfa Tower, it's UTC Tower (Uffici Tecnici Comunali, city district's technical offices). It should receive 60 million euro to be renovated soon, as the building is in terrible condition.

Look at this unembeddable picture: http://flic.kr/p/9tAQX6

Galfa is this beautiful 1956-59 modernist skyscraper next to the train station. It has been vacant since 2001, and it was even squatted for 10 days last year! There are plans for renovation: I think/hope they're gonna preserve its amazing design.

The cladding looks sleek but worn out. I hoped they would redo the cladding in the same design but with nigh quality materials, but I don't think that's the case.

As for the first building, it really is in terrible shape. Maybe they can still retain the grid texture when it's renovated.

New stadium, race flash: AC Milan and Inter thirty days to say yes

The new facility will accommodate not only football matches but also other sports and, not least, live performances, from concerts. The time for talking is over. Anyone who is interested to build a stadium in the Expo area once closed the event in 2015, you have 30 days , starting from February 13, to come forward. Yes, Arexpo, the company formed by the Region and the City just to buy the land where rise the pavilions of the World Expo in Milan, decided to open the competition for the new facility on 13 (or no later than the 14th) of the month in progress. On that day, to be exact, will be published in the Official Gazette, "a public notice for the submission of expression of interest to the construction of a sports complex including a football stadium on the multifunctional European model within the Expo site."

The new structure will accommodate not only football matches but also other sports and, not least, live performances, from concerts . It is called otherwise, the idea of multi-functional stadium, ready to give vent to the music also, dear Mayor Giuliano Pisapia, who has never hidden his appreciation for this option. On the need for the second life of the Expo site trovassero space also sports other than football has instead pushed the governor Roberto Maroni. A Citadel Sports all concentrated in one plant that is being outlined in the public notice. The certainty is the willingness to up the tempo. As I said, anyone who aspires to build the stadium will have 30 days to respond. And that's not all. Arexpo The notice will show the public that he had already received the interest of AC Milan and analysis is underway on the draft submitted by the Rossoneri. An act, of course. But also a strategy to ensure that the same face Milan understand whether or not it intends to go through with it. In recent days, emissaries of the club of Silvio Berlusconi have in fact carried out an inspection on the areas of Sesto San Giovanni Falck to see if the redevelopment project weblog Citta della Salute can find space, just like on the Expo areas, even a stadium. If it is true that Milan has submitted to Arexpo the project in record time, it is also true that the company has asked for time to consider alternatives. That time, however, is becoming less wide, at least for the region and for the city. Even here the choice to speed and to keep alive the warning only 30 days. The other recipient of the message is Inter. The interest of the Inter president, the Indonesian magnate Erick Thohir, for the construction of a stadium owned seems to have waned over the weeks. Also need clarity from the front Bausch. The race will be open to everyone, but at the moment you do not see other possible investors on the horizon. The area where the stadium will be realized, will then have to be sold: private plant on private land. A delicate step, this. Like the one on the harmonization of the sports with the other projects of conversion of the Expo.

Milano Linate Airport
After the agreements between Etihad Airways and Alitalia, billionaires sheikhs have decided to strengthen Milano Linate Airport.
Perhaps a restructuring will follow soon. News coming up.

Seriously? I see projects using cargo containers all the time. I'm almost sick of it.

It's the first time I see a pavillon made from adapted cargo containers, for real but I believe you if you say it's common!

They look nice but I see it can become boring, over the time.
