DOSSIER: archaeological remains found in central Milan

The past is back once again: archaeological remains have been found in central Milan during the M4 excavation work. The area is located in Corso Europa, not so far from the Cathedral.


What they have found? The ruins of "Baths of Hercules", the largest thermae of the ancient Milan. The original building measured 127 meters long and 112 wide.


In 286 Diocletian moved the capital of the Western Roman Empire from Rome to Mediolanum (Milan). Emperor Maximian built several gigantic monuments, as the "Baths of Hercules", the large circus, a large complex of imperial palaces and other services and buildings of which fewer visible traces remain.

Milano Santa Giulia
Milan | Zone 4


design: Foster+Partners, Design International
area: 558,000 sqm (total masterplan)

Milano Santa Giulia is located between the districts of Rogoredo and Taliedo, an area that was known for its industrial character since the late 19th century. Over the last few decades, most of the industry moved away or closed, most notably the Montedison factory and the Redaelli steel mills. These departures left a huge void in the urban fabric of the area.

Subsequently, a number of urban regeneration schemes for the area were attempted, but it was only when developer Risanamento was brought on board that those plans really started to take shape.


The overall concept imagines a district that is well connected to the rest of the city, yet combines the essential components of a self-contained community, thus making Milano Santa Giulia a ‘city within a city’. The 60,000 people who will live in this community will be served by a number of facilities including office buildings, a museum of technology & innovation for children, educational services, an entertainment and leisure arena, and sports facilities. There is also one of the largest parks in Milan, which is integrated into Milan’s green network. However it is the retail and leisure offering, situated at the heart of the community, which makes this development exceptionally unique. This retail and leisure area integrates perfectly within its immediate urban context, consisting mainly of residential, entertainment and office buildings.

Milano Santa Giulia is effectively connected to both Milan’s local urban infrastructures, whilst also connecting to larger national and international transportation networks. Linate Airport, which is 10 minutes by car, is Milan’s primary airport for short-haul international and domestic flights, including Bologna, which can be reached in 45 minutes. East of Milano Santa Giulia is the A51, one of Italy’s main autostrada arteries, connecting the north of Italy to the south. West of the district is the Rogoredo metro station, with a direct link to central Milan, as well as a high speed train station from where Turin can be reached in 50 minutes.

The masterplan connects to this network of public and private transport through an extensive internal network of roads and public transport, extending 2 bus lines as well as a tram line. There is also a network of cycle paths and underground parking areas to reduce private traffic in favour of sustainable mobility. The overall concept of the masterplan envisions the shopping and entertainment components at the heart of the new city district, for the community as well as in architectural terms.


This commercial and social heart is in the shape of a triangle, defined by three plazas connecting the three main anchors of the development. The west corner is defined by the ‘Museum Plaza’, which links to the museum of technology and innovation. The northeast corner is defined by the ‘Arena Plaza’ which connects the entertainment arena. Lastly, the southeast corner is defined by the ‘Market Plaza’, which is home to a variety of markets. This then links the Hypermarket to the main open-air shopping and entertainment district in the centre.

Three main routes guide the customer flow through the district, whilst also acting as arteries linking to the surrounding residential, entertainment and office areas. The ‘Gallery Walk’ connects the Market Plaza to the Museum Plaza via a pedestrianised street. The ‘Santa Giulia Gardens’ acts as a small network of green streets, mini plazas and terraced gardens that form the heart of the district, and the ‘Hollywood Boulevard’ connects the Arena Plaza with the Museum Plaza, along a number of entertainment facilities just north of the shopping district.


The ‘Gallery Walk’, connecting the Market Plaza with the Museum Plaza, is a pedestrian street that also acts as a natural joining between the shopping district and the neighbouring residential area. On the shopping district side, there are cafes, restaurants and bars on the ground floor with outdoor seating, whilst the ground floor on the residential side is lined with showrooms and galleries. These showrooms and galleries will be showcasing mainly upmarket furniture designs and other arts and crafts products.


‘Santa Giulia Gardens’, the heart of the shopping district, is an open air and terraced area. The ground and first floor are home to the retail element, with restaurants on the second floor, and offices on the second floor and above. At the core of the shopping district there is a green oasis, from where nature extends along the terraces, platforms and walkways. These then open up towards the upper floors of the surrounding buildings, ensuring an open and light atmosphere on all levels. There is also a bridge from the restaurant area on the second floor, which creates a direct link to the cinema in the neighbouring Hollywood Boulevard.


The ‘Hollywood Boulevard’ connects the Arena Plaza to the Museum Plaza along a wide boulevard. This also joins the shopping district along its south side with the entertainment facilities along the north side, connecting to the cinema which is situated adjacent to the Arena Plaza. The luxury shops that are located on the opposite side of the boulevard further enhance the glamorous feel and atmosphere of this part of the shopping district.

DOSSIER: Milan selected to trial smart city tech

THE EUROPEAN PROJECT
Milan has been chosen to join a new European smart city scheme which will involve the testing of innovative technologies aimed at improving the lives of urban residents. Milan is expected to receive a cut of the pan-European fund as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. The city will work alongside hi-tech companies. A data sharing platform will also be established to collaborate with other member cities – Bordeaux, Burgas, Lisbon, London and Warsaw.

THE DISTRICT IN MILAN
Over the next five years, the area is set to become the Milan's district with zero energy waste. The interventions will cover a total of 25,000 sqm public and private buildings. Smart street lights will be installed with various types of wi-fi and sensors. In addition, the area will be served by electric vehicles for car sharing, electric vehicles for distribution of goods and services, electric bikes, electric charging stations.

"This area is already under great transformations due to the construction of Prada Foundation Museum, the new campus of Bocconi University, and the Symbiosis development: projects with integrated solutions to reduce consumption in all categories" said Urban Planning Councillor, Alessandro Balducci.

Italian 2015 Home Sales Show Milan Soared While Rome Stagnated

Milan and Rome were the best and worst major Italian cities for home sales last year, revealing a widening economic gap between the country’s capital and its financial center.

Residential transactions jumped 13.4 percent in Milan last year, while sales in Rome increased 0.8 percent, according to data released by the Ministry of Economy Thursday. Sales nationally picked up 6.5 percent last year.

The latest data reaffirms Rome’s reputation for sluggish economic growth and political dysfunction. The capital has been under special administration by the national government since mayor Ignazio Marino resigned in October and the main political parties are struggling to find mayoral candidates for elections later this year.

"Beyond Rome’s old problems with traffic and infrastructure, prices remain generally too high and the real estate market has still to reach a point of equilibrium between demand and supply," said Giuseppe Sullutrone, local head of FIAIP, Italy’s largest property agents association.

"Moreover, many large companies are currently moving their headquarters within the city” so employees are postponing purchases, he said.

Rome-based statistics office Istat will release national data on residential prices in 2015 on April 4.
