- Palazzo Lombardia skyscraper, panoramic floor at about 160 mts, on sundays open and free. Great close view of the business district.
- Monte Stella park/hill. Great view from the west. Great place to have a beer and relax watching the sunset.
- Unico restaurant. Great restaurant on the 22nd (?) floor of a building with a little terrace. Great to have dinner and watch the city lights. Very expansive tho.
- Collina die ciliegi park/hill. Good view from the north.
- Montevecchia hill. Great view over Milan from far away from the north.
- My flat

If you need help to find and to get to these places just pop into the Italian forum and ask me/us.

Edit: It's Collina DEI (not DIE) ciliegi.

Milan City Council want to demolish nuisance building, and replace it with another skyscraper. They suggested a luxury hotel. More news coming soon

The building to demolish


Any idea who the "new developer" is?

some 3 square kms the most ancient part (cerchia dei navigli) and some 10 square kms the "walled city" (the "cerchia dei bastioni") mainly built after 1800s. Anyway the many historical sights and artistical gems are alternated with modern architecture, it's not the typical italian "postcard from the past" kind of city

I'd like to add that there are a lot of interesting historical places worth a visit far away from the historical city center, like mostly of the historical centers of the old Comuni are very interesting, unfortunately it's difficult to get there if you don't have a car.

S lines gets you to the most interesting of them (Monza, Pavia, Bergamo, Como...) in half an hour or so, I quite never use the car!

No, I mean Comuni of the Cittŕ Metropolitana not Metropolitan Area. Without a car it's quite difficult to get to (for example) Villa San Carlo Borromeo in Senago or Villa Litta in Lainate and so on.

The project is not still approved. This is just an AC Milan / Arup proposal for the redevelopment of Portello district.

Fondazione Fiera Milano will take a decision within March 2015.

If project about new stadium will be rejected, AC Milan should consider another location to build it. And (probably) a new design will be unveiled.

Here other proposals for the redevopment of Portello district (info):
* Vitali / Stam Europe = A project about food and services for free time.
* Arcotecnica Group / Pkf Consulting = They proponed a Community Hub to host indoor and outdoor activities, cultural and artistic spaces.
* Prelios / Hub Lab = The so-called project "Magnete Milano" is inspired by Parc de la Villette (Paris, France). An interactive technological park, where citizens and tourists can find a place for education and entertainment linked to innovative sectors as 3D, robotics and innovative technologies.
