Construction works start today, to create a great pedestrian area in Piazza Castello. An area of 15,000 smq, will be part of the great pedestrian route, from the Peace Arch to Corso Venezia. The pedestrianization around Sforza Castle follows the ones of Piazza Beccaria, Piazza Liberty and Piazza Pio XI, Via Santa Radegonda and the creation of an Area 30 across the roman's streets of Milan. In next weeks, a big party to celebrate the addition of another zero traffic area, as a sign of livability and mobility. In the same days the Cyclopride and the opening of Expo Gate. While from September 2014, Milan's new area will see pots and planters, five kiosks with quality food, flowers, books and souvenirs, chairs and loungers.

Muslim tourists will travel to Milan for EXPO 2015. The city government is already working to create a temporary mosque. Meanwhile on April 29, 2014, Welfare Councillor, Pierfrancesco Majorino, will meet various representatives of Islam to create an unified project. There are already too many people believe that will be built up to three mosques, one of which could arise close to Rho-Pero and another in the area of Via Padova, responding to the request made by the same district. A third project in the former Palasharp's area. Among investors of the project, a group from Jordan.

OSPEDALE MAGGIORE POLICLINICO
The project works and on the city centre, introducing a different conception of hospital, from the actual one, made by different pavillons and organizing the new hospital as unique conceptual building. The new hospital is an integrated building, that links the two different poles (medical centre, and mother and child centre). The intervention reconnects the new sanitary and non sanitary services both for the new and the old hospital poles. The construction of the new health care complex is to be considered as a regeneration process for the entire area. The project provides new urban functions as green spaces, commercial areas, linking different parts of the city and providing new pedestrian paths.

A new NBA-style arena will be built in Milan

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Giorgio Armani has great plans for Milan. The basketball team Olimpia looks to the future. EA7 and the President Proli Livio, want to create a new NBA-style arena of 13,000 seats, which should arise within a shopping center between Segrate and Linate (east of city center). The idea was born already in 2009, when Antonio Percassi, owner of the football team Atalanta, wanted to build the largest shopping center of Europe in the world fashion capital city. Then, in 2012, came into the project the Australian giant Westfield. Now the city of Milan is in step-3: involve at sponsorship level, the Armani group.


See the WESTFIELD MILAN project

Another little news: Kuwait is ready to invest in Milan, on Expo 2015 area after the event.

Milan's city government opened an international project competition about Cavalcavia Bussa, near Milano Garibaldi Railway Station. Areas will be no longer thought as places of transit and vehicle parking, but as protagonists of an urban renewal project that will bring a new system of public spaces for the city. Become a multi-functional and inclusive place; will be enhanced its walkability and cycling system, with the elimination of architectural barriers; the structure will be upgraded and new services will arise, such as Velostazione, which will be built between the bridge and the railway station.

Below, the evolution of population at each census since 1841.

In 1861, Lyon had 382,000 inhabitants in its 309.6 km², whereas Milan had 328,000 inhabitants in its 309.3 km², Turin had 201,000 inhabitants in its 309.6 km², and Munich had 170,000 inhabitants in its 310.7 km².

In 1901, Lyon had 568,000 inhabitants, Milan had 628,000 inhabitants, Turin had 366,000 inhabitants, and Munich had 526,000 inhabitants.

Lyon (in its 309.6 km²) was passed by Milan in 1893, by Munich in 1909, and by Turin in 1936. In recent years, however, Lyon has grown more than its counterparts, both in its overall metro area and in its central areas.

This is the growth rate for all 4 areas of 310 km² between the last censuses:
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +0.75% per year between 2006 and 2011
- Munich (310.7 km²): +0.54% per year between 1987 and 2011 (there was no census in Germany between 1987 and 2011, and Destatis has not published intercensal estimates yet, so we can only calculate an average growth rate between 1987 and 2011)
- Turin (309.6 km²): +0.04% per year between 2001 and 2011
- Milan (309.3 km²): -0.04% per year between 2001 and 2011

At current growth rates, Lyon should pass Turin again in 2017. Whether it will also pass Munich and Milan (in the 310 km² central area) will depend essentially on which density policies are adopted by all three cities (Munich is already a city by itself; the 309.6 km² of Lyon are entirely contained within the Métropole de Lyon, the metropolitan authority which will come into existence in January next year and will be in charge of urban planning; the 309.3 km² of Milan will be entirely contained within the Città Metropolitana di Milano, which, like the Métropole de Lyon, will also come into existence next year and will be in charge of urban planning).

[img]http://i59.************/2n7ipw4.png[/img]

Growth rates from 1841 to 1871:
- Turin (309.6 km²): +1.78% per year (from 1861 to 1871)
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +1.53% per year (+1.90% per year from 1841 to 1866, then a population decline due to the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-1871)
- Munich (310.7 km²): +1.36% per year
- Milan (309.3 km²): +0.75% per year (from 1861 to 1871)

Growth rates from 1871 to 1901:
- Munich (310.7 km²): +3.52% per year
- Milan (309.3 km²): +1.99% per year
- Turin (309.6 km²): +1.45% per year
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +1.31% per year

Growth rates from 1901 to 1921:
- Milan (309.3 km²): +1.99% per year
- Turin (309.6 km²): +1.94% per year
- Munich (310.7 km²): +1.29% per year (from 1901 to 1925)
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +0.41% per year

Growth rates during the interwar period:
- Milan (309.3 km²): +2.23% per year (from 1921 to 1936)
- Turin (309.6 km²): +1.70% per year (from 1921 to 1936)
- Munich (310.7 km²): +1.11% per year (from 1925 to 1939)
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +0.76% per year (from 1921 to 1936)

Growth rates during WW2:
- Milan (309.3 km²): +0.92% per year (from 1936 to 1951)
- Turin (309.6 km²): +0.91% per year (from 1936 to 1951)
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +0.28% per year (from 1936 to 1951)
- Munich (310.7 km²): -0.10% per year (from 1939 to 1950)

Growth rates during the Trente Glorieuses (post-WW2 economic boom):
- Turin (309.6 km²): +3.00% per year (from 1951 to 1971)
- Munich (310.7 km²): +2.27% per year (from 1950 to 1970)
- Milan (309.3 km²): +2.19% per year (from 1951 to 1971)
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +1.61% per year (from 1951 to 1975)

Growth rates from the oil-shock of the 1970s to the fall of the Berlin Wall:
- Lyon (309.6 km²): -0.10% per year (from 1975 to 1990)
- Munich (310.7 km²): -0.51% per year (from 1970 to 1987)
- Turin (309.6 km²): -0.58% per year (from 1971 to 1991)
- Milan (309.3 km²): -0.78% per year (from 1971 to 1991)

Growth rates in the past 20 years:
- Munich (310.7 km²): +0.54% per year (from 1987 to 2011)
- Lyon (309.6 km²): +0.53% per year (from 1990 to 2011)
- Turin (309.6 km²): -0.34% per year (from 1991 to 2011)
- Milan (309.3 km²): -0.37% per year (from 1991 to 2011)

I think Lyon is very comparable with Turin, but I fail to see how can it be compared with one of the largest metropolitan areas in Europe like Milan...Milan, considering the Metropolitan City that will hopefully see the light soon, is 3.2 millions habitants and 1600 square km large (Metropolitan city), while the "petite couronne" is 5.25 millions and the "grande couronne" 7.4 millions...

Now all provinces are deceased, and according to new law (which regulates 10 cities around Italy), Milan will enlarge its boundaries and became a city of more 4 mln people in just 1,980 sqkm, I think (and we don't consider other towns or villages, that will can join with new Milan). Btw we'll see.
