DOSSIER: City Council approved guidelines for the future of 1.3 million sqm area

With 38 votes in favour, 4 abstained and 0 against, the City Council of Milan has finally approved the guidelines to redevelop the seven former railway yards (Farini, Greco-Breda, Lambrate, Romana, Rogoredo, Porta Genova, San Cristoforo) comprising a total surface of about 1.3 million sqm, representing an incredible potential both for urban, economic, social development. "This solution is the result of a shared vision of the entire City Council - stressed the Councilor for Urban Planning, Pierfrancesco Maran - Milan has very clear ideas on how change these areas".


Some of the guidelines approved:
* Connect the urban transformations with Milan subway service.
* Build a new circle-line from San Cristoforo to Stephenson, paying attention to the noise pollution.
* Give attention to the environment, with the goal to create new parks, natural systems and a green belt in order to connect these areas.
* Build new neighborhoods characterized by an high environmental sustainability and smart technological equipment, with integrated environmental monitoring devices and urban security.
* Develop a mix of services and public functions that respond to the need of the areas, while also providing logistical functions to improve efficiency and sustainability. New buildings must have zero carbon emissions.
* Launch international competitions for the masterplans of the main areas that will host significant buildings (great iconic architecture).

Etruscan Art Museum
Milan | Zone 1


design: Mario Cucinella Architects
status: planned

The historic Palazzo Bocconi-Rizzoli-Carraro -located in front of Porta Venezia Gardens- is set to host a new small museum dedicated to Etruscan art. The museum will open in December 2018. See more about Etruscans.


The restoration works will take care of the "noble" part of the building, whose inner garden is protected by Superintendence of Cultural Heritage. While new stone domes -reminiscent of the Etruscan tombs- will be created in the underground: a contemporary and hi-tech space that will allow the visitors to explore the narrative part of the exhibition.






The museum will develop on three floors. The entrance is dedicated to the reception with the ticket office, cafeteria and bookshop; the underground and first floor will host the art collection; while the second floor will house a library, conference room and laboratories.

None, in terms of history of Milan.
But it's a private collection that has been gifted to the city.
Nice anyhow, if not of identity.
We hope for a Museum of Longobards then.

Well, Milan it was a gateway for greeks and etruscans artifacts to reach central europe. Many burials contained greeks and etruscans vases. There was a late Hallstatt culture in western Lombardy and eastern piedmont that was called the Golasecca culture, that basically lived by selling greek and etruscan products to the peoples on other side of the alps. The Golasecchians were excellent armourers, but unluckily at the moment we have just a small museum about them at the Castello Sforzesco, just a couple of rooms, the rest is all deposited underneath the castle, hope that someday we'll have a decent proto-historical museum about them too.
Longobards just came later, after the fall of Roman empire.

Culture. New openings: Osservatorio by Fondazione Prada; Gallery of historic gesso moulds in Brera.


On December 21, fashion designer Miuccia Prada will inaugurate Osservatorio, Fondazione Prada's new exhibition space located in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, dedicated to photography and visual languages. Extending across the fifth and sixth floors of one of the famous galleria's main buildings, Osservatorio is located above the central octagon, at the level of the glass and iron dome that covers the arcades. The spaces have now been fully restored. Also this new exhibition space is an invitation to visitors to discover the new Fondazione Prada museum that is taking shape (see more).






Brera Academy inaugurated a new underground gallery in Palazzo Brera. The exhibitions spaces -that will host historic gesso moulds- have been restored, protected with gates and new electrical and security systems.

Milan to plant 9,200 new trees

Milan celebrates the National Day of the Trees with a good news: 9,200 new trees (whose main species are plum trees, plane trees, maples, poplars, oaks, limes and sweetgum) will be planted soon, enriching the green heritage of the city proper (181.76 sqkm).


"In recent years, Milan has become more green and sustainable - said the Councilor for Urban Planning, Pierfrancesco Maran - Many citizens are more sensitive towards environmental issues. For this reason we are continuing to increase the number of trees, but it is important to approve the "New Regulation for Use and Protection of Public and Private Green" as soon as possible: we have to protect, enhance and make enjoyable the green areas of our city".

Updates ExpoGate

ExpoGate, which served as infopoint for the Universal Exhibition Expo Milano 2015 "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" and XX1T Design Exhibition 2016 by la Triennale, was demolished.








Expogate, designed by Scandurra Studio (see project), was placed in Via Beltrami - in front of the main entrance to Sforza Castle: both structures have had created some criticisms among citizens.


However, the area is waiting to be redeveloped as part of major project with the goal to refurbish completely Piazza Castello-Foro Bonaparte (see more).

DOSSIER: Shopping streets lure investors with appealing yields, and Milan leads the way.


The international attention obtained by Milan in recent months, which has turned it into a top touristic destination in Italy as much as the country's arts cities, is confirmed by the real estate market. The high street sector, the shopping streets, are leading a revival of the Lombardy capital, which has become a hunting ground for retailers seeking to open a store in the city and investors who find in good locations appealing yields and a safe source of income.

According to the 28th edition of the report "Main street across the world" by Cushman&Wakefield, which ranks the most expensive retail locations in 71 cities across the world, Milan is 6th internationally and 3rd-placed in Europe, with leases of €12,000 per sqm on Montenapoleone, behind Paris (the most expensive city in Europe with €13,255 per sqm on Avenue des Champs Élysées) and London (the second city with €12,434 on New Bond Street). Rome follows in the fourth place. Four Italian cities feature among the top 10 European spots: Florence (8th) and Venice (10th).

Stores on Milan's Golden Quadrangle cost 20% more than a year before. In 2015, rents increased 41.2%. On Rome's Via Condotti, commercial leases have increased 15.8%. The report confirms the appeal of key Italian cities, both in the commercial and the luxury segments. Pressure on prices and rents is also due, especially in Rome and Milan, to the scarcity of the spaces available on the market. Considering the limited offer of units between 200 and 400 sqm, operators are willing to pay more for top locations.

"The Italian market remains active, while only three years ago expectations were decisively more negative. Good prospects also for 2017" said Thomas Casolo at C&W. According to a separate report by C&W about the third quarter of 2016 and focused on Italian cities, the consultancy firm expects high interest for investors and a stable return. Today, buying or renting a store in Milan in a "prime" location pays a net interest of 3.25% (in the past 10 years, it reached 4.75%). This rises to 4% in Venice, 4.25% in Florence, and 6% in Naples.

FS Sistemi Urbani in collaboration with the City of Milan and Lombardy Region, promotes a participatory, inclusive and collaborative, sustainable urban regeneration of disused railway yards in Milan. The goal is to define a strategic vision for the transformation of the huge areas, located in key areas of the city, covering a total area of 1.3 million square meters (14 million sqft). (read more)

Thanks to the involvement of five multidisciplinary teams led by internationally renowned architects (Stefano Boeri from Stefano Boeri Architetti; Francine Marie Jeanne Houben from Mecanoo architecten; Ma Yansong from Mad Architects; Benedetta Tagliabue from EMBT Miralles Tagliabue; Cino Zucchi from Cino Zucchi Architetti) and a scientific committee (Mario Abis, Josep Acebillo, Leopoldo Freyrie, Isabella Inti), the process will end with the presentation of five scenarios of urban development.

The workshop began November 22 and ended on November 25 at Scalo Farini. The goal is to shape the future of the city, involving local institutions, academies, experts and citizens.

Pics show a small part of Scalo Farini: it is one of the seven areas to redevelop close to Porta Nuova, and covers an area of 651,000 sqm (+7 million sqft). It's likely that iconic skyscrapers, low-rise buildings, services, pedestrian areas and public park will be built here in coming years.

DOSSIER: Piazza Gae Aulenti? World's best new plaza

Piazza Gae Aulenti in Milan's Porta Nuova won the 2016 Landscape Institute Award. Placed under the iconic UniCredit Tower and close to Bosco Verticale, Piazza Gae Aulenti was prized by the British landscape and architectural organization (recognized by the British Royal Family) as the best project in the Design for Medium Scale Development category. Piazza Gae Aulenti was selected among 42 projects around the world: this award is just an addition to those already obtained by other projects in Porta Nuova.


The new piazza (2,300 sqm) dedicated to the Italian architect Gae Aulenti, sits at the heart of the Porta Nuova development adjacent to Porta Garibaldi station, and it could be seen as a modern interpretation of the traditional Italian piazzas.

A continuous flowing circle of stone seating (105 meters long) surrounding a vast reflecting pool, 60 metres in diameter that reflects the colours of the changing seasons and surrounding buildings. The pool cascades down two floors, the sound of which mitigates the noise pollution of surrounding roads, and creating three beautiful oval cascades that bring daylight and natural ventilation to spaces below. Emblematic are the Solar Tree; the sculptures of the voices and sounds; the porticoes made of glass, wood and steel.


Since the opening to the public, the plaza has been the heart of Porta Nuova, a crossroads of infrastructures and identity, by allowing the meeting of the three historic districts (Brera, Isola and Varesine) which remained divided until December 2012, and now connected via one of the most important city's pedestrian systems.


"This further international recognition reaffirms the reputation of Italian architecture in the world through innovative projects with a particular attention to the refurbishment of public spaces that we have developed in collaboration with the City of Milan" said Manfredi Catella.


"Designing a plaza in Italy has been an incredible, exciting and true experience of humility - said Gregg Jones, principal at Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects - To create this new public space were necessary time, effort, reflection and careful attention. It's great to return there and see how full of life is".

Santa Giulia Arena
Milan | Zone 4


design: Foster+Partners, Design International
status: planned
developer: Risanamento SpA
give a look to masterplan (total area 558,000 sqm) > link


Santa Giulia Arena (15,000 seats) is expected to be built in Milan's Rogodero neighborhood.
It will be used for indoor sports (basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc.) as well as for shows, cultural events, music concerts.


The arena will have a highly flexible space: indeed, its infrastructure is planned and designed to ensure rapid, efficient turnover. This will ensure efficient management of events. The arena will be equipped with commercial services that will be open every day of the week for most of the day, ensuring that the area remains vibrant even in the evening.


The position of Santa Giulia Arena will facilitate strong integration with the area's commercial facilities, entertainment and residential areas, services, museum and the adjacent 380,000 sqm park, thereby generating mutual benefits.

The appeal of Santa Giulia Arena will increase the number of visitors to the retail pedestrian areas (dedicated mainly to design and interior furnishing, with showrooms, artisanal boutiques and art galleries), interspersed by restaurants, bars and cafés with outdoor seating, so that different times of day can be fully enjoyed. At same time the retail opportunities and the proximity to the park will enrich the experience of attending events at the arena (pre/post-event).

Technological Museum of Innovation for Children
Milan | Zone 4


design: Foster+Partners, Design International
status: planned
give a look to masterplan (total area 558,000 sqm) > link


The museum is specially designed for children. It is dedicated to innovation and technology and, through films, interactive screens, and educational workshops organised ad hoc for different age groups, it facilitates exploration of subjects such as sustainability, smart cities, the environment and cities of the future.


The design of the museum and its educational and cultural provision will benefit from collaboration with the staff of Milan's National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo Da Vinci, which enjoys international acclaim. The museum is intended to be a multifunctional space, housing a restaurant, bar and an auditorium for conferences and meetings, and will be a popular venue for people from outside the local area also.


Furthermore, its position facilitates strong synergies and integration with the other services located in the area, especially the commercial and accommodation facilities, but also with the park (a visit to which is enriched by references to the contents of the Museum, turning it into a natural, outdoor extension) and services for children and schools in particular.

DOSSIER: Milan builds its first indoor ski hall.


concept design

The first indoor ski hall in Italy is expected to be built in Milan, with the Alps on the background. The new sports plant, similar to the one in Dubai, will be located in a former area once hosted a pole for the production of Alfa Romeo cars: the area is close to the new Arese Shopping Center and not so far from the former Expo 2015 site.

"The two million sqm area in the former Alfa Romeo pole is a natural extension of the Greater Milan" said Marco Brunelli, the entrepreneur of Finiper Group which bought the property. The project, which is under discussion by the regional government, provides a structure suspended on thin pillars and surrounded by green spaces. It will also include hotel, restaurant and services. The indoor ski dome should be open 365 days per year. Regional government seems in favour of the project, but the main issue to solve is to invest in mobility.

The structure, designed to minimize environmental impact and save energy, is innovative and revolutionary. "Here the old and abandoned track of Alfa Romeo pole was rebuilt in the awareness of the emotion that causes at brand's fans" said architect Michele De Lucchi. "Now another piece of architecture for the sport mixed with Italian excellence will be created here".

As per architectural overall quality, the shorter via Dante already ranks higher than las ramblas I would say...
