The new 'Brebemi' motorway (Brescia-Bergamo-Milano) has been opened today, with 'Teem', a portion of the future outer ring road in east Milan (32 kilometers in total). The entire motorway (over 66 kilometers) has three lanes in each direction plus an emergency lane.

Eleven Architects to Think About the Future of Piazza Castello in Milan

The future of Piazza Castello is central to meetings being held at Expo Gate until the end of July. The City of Milan, in partnership with the Triennale Design Museum, is involving eleven architectural firms as participants in a project to submit concrete proposals that will be further developed in September. The goal of the entire program is to make a range of hypotheses available to the City’s Administration that can open a discussion on how the piazza will be redeveloped after Universal Expo. After a first shared meeting held on July 15, each group was asked to start its project activities directly in the area, in Sala Leonardo at Expo Gate, used for the occasion as a work space. The meetings will be open from 14.30 to 20.00, to temporary users, residents, committees, citizens, for a variety of reasons interested in leaving behind a beautiful and functional structure of those urban spaces involved.

The architectural studios who will be taking part in Sala Leonardo are Piuarch, on July 15; Matteo Fantoni, Friday, July 18, and Studio Albori, Monday, July 21. Today Attilio Stocchi takes the lead at Expo Gate. "For Piazza Castello I see a future that is independent of the Expo Gate structures - explains the architect - I do not see them as essential to the Piazza which can instead become a crucial focal point for the City of Milan." Stocchi has a project in mind that where the word "Nature" is the protagonist. "In etymological terms, Nature means "that which is about to be born" and these are the terms that express what Piazza Castello needs to be. It is a place exposed to the sun, with a huge number of people passing through it and a rich history. It can be a symbol of Milan, which is about to be born. It must be a place of reflection on the identity of the city, a place of life." Milan is changing, growing, thanks to Expo Milano 2015. "I think there is a new phase - concludes Stocchi - I am confident that the structures of the Expo, at the end of the Universal Exposition, will be retained and partially converted and reused."

Following Studio Stocchi, other guests at the Sala Leonardo include: Onsite Studio (Wednesday July 23), Park Associati (Thursday, July 24), Mazzoleni Piraino - Urbana (Friday July 25), Marco Zanuso (Monday, July 28), Guidarini & Salvadeo (Tuesday 29 July), Morpurgo De Curtis (Wednesday July 30) and Obr Open Building Research (Thursday July 31).

Construction site for the redevelopment of the fountain, starting in the next few days, will include maintenance work: its blocks and slabs of Vicenza Stone will be cleaned, its tank sealing resurfaced, and an improved filter and new lighting system will be installed. The fountain will be as good as new by October. By the end of the summer, works in progress for the new cycle path will also be completed, creating a dedicated space for getting around by bike, and ensuring safer pedestrian circulation. From September works on the cycle lane will continue on Via Legnano and Via Byron.

84,000 LEDs to Light Up Milan for Expo 2015

The city of Milan is all set to host the Expo 2015, the Universal Exposition. The city is reinventing itself in preparation for the event with breath-taking skyline, new cycle paths, subways tunnels, and efficient lighting system.

The theme of the Expo, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, has been the main driving force behind the developments in the city. Keeping this in mind, via a tender, A2A, the service utility company that manages Milan’s electrical supply, will install 84,000 LED luminaires by February 2015 in all of Milan. AEC will light up Milan using the Italo LED street lantern which has been designed, engineered and manufactured by AEC in their state of the art facilities in Arezzo, Tuscany.

The unique optical systems and a wide range of optics enables the products to be installed in most urban applications such as residential areas, parks, squares and city centres.

Alessandro Cini, AEC CEO, said “This project represents the talent and hard work of AEC, the entire team have been instrumental in delivering this success to our business. We are proud to offer Milan a Made in Italy, energy saving LED solution. We are excited to have the eyes of the world on Milan and AEC in 2015”.

Any news on the Centro Europeo di Ricerca Biomedica Avanzata? I can't believe that such a project that can provide such benefit to the Milanese and Italian economies is being delayed for so many years...
