Five sustainable schools will be built. Investments for 52 million euros.

Milan continues to pursue its path to becoming a best smart city. And to do it, the city government will be strengthened by 5 new schools (52 mln euro investments): two elementary schools in Via Viscontini and Via Brocchi, a middle school on Via Strozzi, and two schools for children in Via Martinelli and Via Rimini. After demolition and reclamation of the areas, schools (which are part of a larger development plan) will be built with the most advanced and innovative technologies provided by the bio-architecture: as optimal acoustics of the interior, a decrease in energy consumption with the reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, solar panels for the production of energy, natural light through the use of solar chimneys.

Milan as a large yard

Construction works and excitement. Italians are happy to host Expo 2015 from May 1 to October 31, and Milan to do it is a open large yard under the sky. Numerous public and private companies (including Telecom Italia, Terna and ATM) to work, miles of underground cables and pipes. Will be renovated water and sewage networks, electricity and gas grids, district heating, a new tram network, and so on. Great attention, in recent weeks, to break down architectural barriers for handicap people. City goal is attract more foreign investments after the event.

To me this is a technical test Few weeks ago in Porta Nuova Business District, was installed a wheel of 18 meters. According to rumors, Mirabilandia's owners (an amusement park in Emilia Romagna region) will build a huge ferris wheel (London Eye style) in the city. I hope it will be built in Sempione Park. A good place to enjoy a 360° view

Meanwhile here some pics about the little wheel

Wow, this was much awaited!!!!

By the way, where did you find those renderings? I'd like to know more about the Mosque, especially about the location and if the renderings are final.

Why CityLife can be a "contemporary treasure" for tourists.


Il Curvo design is changed

Many years are passed since Milan won on Izmir, to host the Universal Exposition of 2015. Since then the city has opened many yards. Milan certainly represents a mix of different cultures, and here you can find past and future, more than every other place around Italy. CityLife District will be surely one place who shows how an italian city can transform itself looking toward the XXI century, and in meantime, without forget its glorious history.

If in past centuries, for architects and artists achieve something in Italy was a habit, for the superstars of today is a 'pride'. CityLife is the representation of an idea of a new city inside the city, which harmonizes the technological evolution with cutting-edge ideas, planning and attention to issues of environmental sustainability. And still, CityLife has the difficult task to tie itself with a city that must keep its artistic culture.

About 37 acres under redevelopment, at least 1500 trees, and three skyscrapers that will change the city's skyline. CityLife will be the new contemporary district, a few steps from the historic center. Its works began in 2007, and it represents a real green neighborhood with zero impact, in CO2 terms. The whole urban area will be pedestrianized and linked with 3 stations of Metro 5. Not only luxury housing, but also spaces for work, leisure and entertainment. CityLife will represent for tourists a place where enjoy also the shopping experience. The public park is partially opened in December 2013, and will be equipped also with bike paths linked with other green areas of the city. CityLife is one of the major projects of urban transformation in Europe today.

Alfa Romeo Museum could reopen

The reopening of the historic Alfa Romeo Museum, can represent another great opportunity for Milan. "We have a great heritage, and we must do everything possible to protect and open it to fans, from every part of the world", said Michela Palestra, mayor of Arese municipality, northwest of Milan downtown. While Pietro Romano, from Rho, said "The Superintendence of Cultural Heritage must to do a step back and allow to FIAT to implement a redevelopment, create a new modern design, attractive at international level."
