DOSSIER: Concession for new "Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park" extended to 99 years.

Two days of crammed meetings with the real estate investor community in Milan and London has led to a lengthening of the concession for the realization of the “Science, Knowledge and Innovation Park” that should see the light within a few years in the former site of the Milan Expo World Fair. The concession has been extended from the initial 50 years to a maximum period of 99 years, as openly requested by potential investors.

It is the biggest development project currently on the horizon in Italy .The first step will lead to the definition of a masterplan for the transformation of the entire area, as well as for the drawing up and elaboration of a business plan for its overall development. The second phase will be focused on the activation of the masterplan and the industrial plan for development (planning, construction of works and management of spaces).

DOSSIER: Enac unveils €500 million plan for Milano Linate Airport


"The works included in the Master Plan of Milano Linate Airport, developed by ENAC (Italian Civil Aviation Authority), provide for their implementation a total investment of about €500 million in the time frame until 2030" announced Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Riccardo Nencini in a statement.

DOSSIER: Milan ranked at 2nd place in the "European Best Destinations 2017".


If you think that Milan is just finance, fashion, design and football, you are wrong. There are other exciting things to discover: stunning art, a wide-range of exhibitions, cultural events, national museums, themed galleries, vibrant nightlife and more. This year, Milan is ranked at second place behind Porto (Portugal) in the "European Best Destination" Awards. However, the northern Italian city surpassed other important destinations like London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Madrid and Vienna.

"This is a great result for us, because efforts we have made over the recent years are going to be repaid" said Roberta Guaineri, Councillor for Tourism. "Yet, this result gives us the strength to continue to improve our tourist offer in order to attract more and more visitors".

The ranking is the result of an on-line poll where people from around the world voted the favourite destionation. The poll was conducted by "European Best Destinations" (EBD), an European organisation based in Brussels and developed to promote culture and tourism in Europe. In partnership with the participating tourism offices and the EDEN Network, EBD promotes a better understanding of the wealth, diversity and quality of European destinations; and it has become the meeting place for tourism offices and world travellers, a main gateway to the discovery of Europe.
