Corso Garibaldi 95
Milan | Zone 1


design: Studio Arassociati
developer: La Ducale - Tecnocasa group

Corso Garibaldi 95 will consist of apartments of different sizes (with a surface up to 387 sqm) distributed in two buildings. Since 1600, the land was occupied by a former convent. The project was developed through the continuity of three green courtyards, with the recovery of the façade on Corso Garibaldi and portico cloister, up to the new inner building complex.


The project takes in consideration environment impact: the complex is a combination of modern architecture and innovative technology. Best technology regarding heating and cooling of the housing units and the management of home automation functions were introduced. The two buildings will have certification in energy class A with the use of geothermal energy, the controlled mechanical ventilation and photovoltaic panels.


Great attention was given to ensure high quality outdoor spaces as large terraces, designed as true extensions of the housing units. The complex is equipped with a video surveillance system that controls the entire area and it is coordinated, together with the system of video door entry and access checks, from a control room operations center on site 24h, 365 days per year. To complete the offer, fitness facilities with have directly access from the palaces.

DOSSIER: American Concrete Institute presents "2016 Excellence Award" to Palazzo Italia

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) announced the winners of the 2016 Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards, who were honored during the ACI Awards Gala at the Concrete Convention & Exposition, October 24, 2016 in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

The highest honor, "The Excellence Award," was presented to Palazzo Italia (Italian Pavilion Expo 2015): this award is given to a project that demonstrates excellence in concrete innovation and technology, and stands out above all other entries.


Designed by Italian architecture firm Nemesi&Partners, Palazzo Italia is the throbbing heart of Expo 2015. The architectural design envisages the construction of a complex structure whose exterior and some interior spaces recall the shapes of branches in a thick forest. The entire outdoor surface and part of the interiors consist of i.active BIODYNAMIC cement panels, obtained using Styl-Comp technology from the new material developed at i.lab, the heart of Italcementi's research and innovation. The "bio" component is given by the product's photocatalytic properties, originating from the active ingredient TX Active, patented by Italcementi. In direct sunlight, the active principle contained in the material "captures" certain pollutants present in the air and converts them into inert salts, helping to purify the atmosphere from smog. The "dynamic" component is a specific characteristic of the new material, whose particular fluidity allows the creation of complex shapes like those found in the Palazzo Italia panels.


«From the silver medal at 1876 Expo in Paris, through to the international success of the Italian Pavilion in transparent cement, the symbol of Expo Shanghai 2010, to the new biodynamic cement that characterizes Palazzo Italia in Expo Milano 2015: Universal Exhibitions have been historically connected to Italcementi based on innovation – said Carlo Pesenti, CEO of Italcementi -. Also a “traditional” industry like that of building materials can renew and offer new opportunities to the building community. Our research projects lead to performances and solutions thanks to which the ideas of architects and engineers can take shape and create very beautiful buildings, like Palazzo Italia».

«Palazzo Italia stems from a concept of natural architecture, making it a landscape – explained Susanna Tradati, designer of Palazzo Italia together with Michele Molé and studio Nemesi & Partners -. A petrified forest, whose complexity has been made possible by the plasticity of biodynamic cement. Italcementi is the first company that, instead of putting up “boundaries” to our work as architects, encouraged us to go further, to overcome the limitations in design often placed by traditional materials. The success of Palazzo Italia is also due to this new, extraordinary cement».

The result of this coming together of product innovation and architecture is a creation that is bringing glory to Italy as a whole. «I remember the looks of amazement on many people’s faces, from the very first days of Expo, in front of the immaculate white, the complexity and the massiveness of Palazzo Italia – said Diana Bracco, President of Expo and General Commissioner of the Italian Pavilion -. I found the same astonishment on the faces of heads of government, ministers and businesspeople when they were told that this material, so beautiful to see, is cement. You do not expect this to be cement, yet this is what it is. And it is the result of Italian research, used by Italian architects to build “the home of Italy” at Expo. A team that is winning the Expo challenge».

The awards were created to honor the visions of the most creative projects in the concrete industry, while providing a platform to recognize concrete innovation, technology, and excellence across the globe. In order to be eligible for participation in the Excellence Awards, projects needed to be winners at a local ACI Chapter level and submitted by that Chapter, or chosen by one of ACI's International Partners.

An independent panel of esteemed industry professionals judged projects and selected winners based on architectural and engineering merit, creativity, innovative construction techniques or solutions, innovative use of materials, ingenuity, sustainability and resilience, and functionality.

'Milano Alta' project rejected. "It is not in line with Milan's international ambitions".


Pierfrancesco Maran, Milan Councillor for Urban Planning

"We are not satisfied about redevelopment project of Portello area presented by Vitali Group" said Pierfrancesco Maran, Milan Councillor for Urban Planning. In recent weeks, Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala said what he thinks about the project: "Missing the spark". But in meantime, the City Council want to put on paper new requests.

"From the point of view of content and functions, we should have more public areas. Portello must become a nice place: even with all commercial/office spaces leased, there is the risk to have a place lived only during working hours. Also from the aesthetic point of view, with those five buildings, this project is not in line with the Milan's international ambitions. The new Milan we have in mind is represented by spaces like Piazza Gae Aulenti in Porta Nuova district" added Maran.

DOSSIER: Is Milan ready to build a vertical farm?

After the international success of Bosco Verticale -the two residential towers with trees and shrubs on the facades, designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri- replied in different places around the world, the City of Milan has in mind a new challenge: the Skyfarm.


Eco-sustainability, self-production food, absence of land use come together in an iconic tower bearing signature of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, in collaboration with Arup.

The project of Skyfarm was submitted to Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala, and has already found a number of important followers like landscape architect Andreas Kipar: "It's a wonderful project that fits perfectly into the debate on the productive, fertile and resilient city".


Skyfarm was initiated as a research project in response to the 2015 Milan Expo theme ‘feed the world’. It is said that by the year 2050 nearly 80 per cent of the earth’s population will reside in urban centres. Over the same period of time, the earth’s population is expected to grow by an additional 3 billion people. If we continue to use traditional farming practises, it is believed that an area of land larger than Brazil will be needed to feed these additional people.

Skyfarm proposes an alternative to the typical land-intensive farming systems. A vertical farm, it is designed to produce crops in multi-storey structures within high density urban areas or where there is insufficient land or poor quality soil. The multi-storey tensegrity structure (isolated components in compression delineated by prestressed tension members) is made of light bamboo to create a rigid circular frame and maximise sun exposure onto the farm. These towers support several layers of agricultural cultivation and an aquaponics system that enables the growth of crops and fish together in a re-circulating system; nutrients derived from fish waste are fed to the plants and the plants provide filters for the fish to thrive in.


The structure is zoned to make the best use of water and nutrients, and to spread the weight of water efficiently across the tower. At ground level there is space for a market or restaurant to encourage the public into the farm and act as an education space or social hub, where all the growing parts of the tower are visible. Above this is a large transparent tank where freshwater fish such as bass, tilapia and barramundi are farmed. In the middle of the structure, plants are grown hydroponically in water rather than soil. Above this, an aeroponic system, where plants are grown in a misty environment using minimal water and no soil, is used. The top of the tower houses water tanks and wind turbines.

The hyperboloid form of the tower enables it to be easily scaled. A 80-metre farm can be built in a larger urban area for example. Its geometry can also be adapted depending on the earth’s latitude and the amount of sunlight available. In cooler climates, a double skinned enclosure and heating could be added to create optimum growing conditions.

While the upfront costs of Skyfarm are higher than standard industrial scale agriculture, the ability to grow produce with a short shelf life, such as strawberries, spinach and lettuce, around the year and close to market without costly air-freighting, makes it an attractive, sustainable proposition.


Now Milan must find an investor who accept the challenge and a place to build it.

DOSSIER: Milan considers setting up a tax-free zone as part of attempts to attract businesses.

The archetypal Milanese dish, risotto allo zafferano, gets its distinctive colour from saffron, the expensive spice once used by the city’s craftsmen to give stained glass a golden tint. According to legend, the recipe was invented in the 16th century when a master glazier, working on the cathedral’s monumental windows, added it to the risotto at his daughter’s wedding. The Milanese still have a Midas touch — a fifth of Italy’s gross domestic product is produced in Lombardy, and in 2015 the region had seven of the top 10 districts in Italy by average income, according to data published by newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore.

The region’s capital, Milan, was less affected by the 2008 global crisis than most parts of Italy. Now it is one of several cities in Europe hoping to pick up some of the spoils should London’s financial institutions shift their operations elsewhere post-Brexit. The mayor, Giuseppe Sala, immediately leapt on the outcome of the vote, calling it “an opportunity” for Milan and dangling the idea of a tax-free zone as an incentive to businesses. Meanwhile, Italy’s prime minister, Matteo Renzi, who was already making plans to snatch the EU’s European Medicines Agency from London, is also making a play for the European Banking Authority, with the objective of transplanting both headquarters to Milan. The city is already Italy’s financial hub. It is home to the country’s main stock exchange and Bocconi University, one of the top-rated universities for business and finance in Europe, which help provide a pool of talent. The government has floated the idea of offering passports to Bocconi students from outside the EU.

Milan is also a global fashion capital, with world-class shopping centred on the glossy Quadrilatero d’Oro. Male and female fashion weeks resonate through the city, which pioneered the concept of fashion-themed hotels and restaurants, including venues tagged by Armani, Bulgari, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana. Each April tens of thousands descend on the city for the ever expanding design fair, Salone del Mobile. International events such as these contribute to a cosmopolitan nightlife, says Clemente Pignatti Morano of Sotheby’s International Realty. A five-star lifestyle worthy of a much larger city is on offer in Milan, which has 15 Michelin-starred restaurants, he says. “The scene is more diverse and more experimental than other Italian cities such as Rome or Florence. It’s more in line with London”.

House prices have fallen about 20 per cent since the 2008 global downturn. According to Fawcett, prices have largely flattened, climbing very slightly in 2015, by less than 1 per cent. Pignatti Morano agrees: “The recovery in prices will be very gradual. But there is certainly more faith in the market compared with two or three years ago.” While it is too early to assess the real impact of the EU referendum, it could help reverse the brain drain in Italy, he says, with some London-based Italians already making offers on properties.

Last year’s Expo fair brought 21m visitors to the city and was a catalyst for infrastructure projects. Milan has plenty of practical advantages for entrepreneurs: fast train links, three airports and ample prime office space. The city has also been attracting more start-ups, thanks to 2013 legislation that facilitates visas, exempts businesses from certain taxes and allows for more flexible employee contracts. Davide Dattoli, co-founder of Talent Garden, which runs co-working campuses, says that since the Brexit vote he has received “dozens” of emails from Italians who had emigrated to London but now intended to return to Italy, overwhelmingly to Milan. He also reports interest from start-ups from outside the EU, mainly from Asia, that were planning to move to London but are now considering Milan.
