Updates Garage Italia Customs
design > Michele De Lucchi Architects (refurbishment work)

Refurbishment work of former AGIP gasoline station, designed by Mario Bacciocchi, built in 1953. Once completed, it will host Garage Italia Customs, the company by Lapo Elkann specialized in customizing cars, boats and helicopters. The building is renovated as an unique place of the Italian excellences, bringing together different talents -like the famous chef Carlo Cracco- under one roof, serving as a meeting and reference point for the Made in Italy lovers.

DOSSIER. From Venice to Turin, passing through Milan, by bike


"VenTo" is the project of the longest cycle path in Italy, 679 km, developed by the Polytechnic University of Milan.


Many unique and beautiful Italian landscapes diversify along the Po River, each of them carrying on its historical and cultural heritage. "VenTo" stretches from the Western smooth hills of Monferrato where the Po River merges into the Adriatic Sea, Po Delta. From East to West, it is possible to encounter many famous cities, such as Venice and the lagoon, Milan and the canals (Navigli - designed by Leonardo Da Vinci), and Turin. In addition to these cities, there are also several beautiful places like Pavia, Cremona, Ferrara, Piacenza, Chioggia, Valenza, Chivasso, and Casale Monferrato. The land crossed by "VenTo" is reach of impressive examples of architecture and history, where Roman culture, Middle Age and Renaissance merge into an unique reality.

But "VenTo" is not only a project of a cycle path, it's also a green economy project, able to create development, economies. It was estimated that "VenTo" is able to create incomes up to 100 millions euro/year, thanks to 300-500 thousand tourists/year and this is able to create more than 2,000 new jobs, green jobs, stable over time and located in lands far from the main economic centers.

As today:
* 15% of "VenTo" is already usable with comfort and safety. 102 km are ready to use but they are not linked together.
* 42% of "VenTo" (284 km) is almost ready. It will connect the cycle paths along the Po river, which are ready to use but they do not have the legal framework to be used as cycle paths. This problem can be solved with the cooperation of the four regions crossed by "VenTo" (Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Lombardia, Piemonte), and the River Authorities. In this way, the usable path of "VenTo" would be 420 km.
* 22% of VENTO (148 km) needs small intervention to become a standardized cycle path. These few interventions can complete up to 80% of the total cycle path of "VenTo".
* The remaining 21% of "VenTo" (145 km) requires heavy interventions and it is not accessible as cycle path.

To conclude, to realize the longest Italian cycle path and the longest of Southern Europe, are required only 80 million euros.

The City of Milan decided to join the project.

DOSSIER. Hospital tower to be built at former Expo 2015 site
affaritaliani.it / ilgiorno.it

Arexpo -the society which owns and manages the former site of Universal Exposition "Expo Milano 2015"- and Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi have signed a preliminary contract for the purchase of a lot of 50,000 sqm at former Expo 2015 site. The lot represents the first piece of area to be converted, and it will be part of a more large project, the so-called "Park of Science, Knowledge and Innovation" of global excellence (see more: 1 / 2 / 3).

In detail, the new tower will host 9,000 people among patients, doctors and nurses; over 500 beds and different departments such as general surgery, neurosurgery, oncology, urology and orthopedics. To build the new hospital it was estimated that are required three years at least. According to first rumors, it might be tall 120 meters.

Arexpo should also sign another agreement with the Italian Institute of Techonology (IIT) on next week, to give birth to the Human Technopole which will span over a surface of 35,000 sqm. The scientific hub is expected to host 1,600 scientists and researchers. The Human Technopole will be lead by the Ministry of Economics, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, University and Research, as well as the Polytechnic University of Milan, the Statal University of Milan, the University of Milano Bicocca, the Higher Institute of Health and the National Research Council.

DOSSIER. Piazzale Loreto get a €25 million makeover

Piazzale Loreto today

Piazzale Loreto, a square not so far from Milan Central Station and one the symbols of Italian modern history, get a 25 million euro makeover.

HISTORY
Piazzale Loreto was the scene of the public display of Benito Mussolini's body on April 29, 1945. The day before, Mussolini and some other high-ranking Fascists had been captured and shot by Partisans (civil people from the Italian Resistance Movement that opposed the occupying German forces and the Italian Fascist regime during the World War 2) near Como Lake.

Mussolini and other Fascists hung upside down from Esso station in Piazzale Loreto

Milan's people celebrate the death of Mussolini in Piazzale Loreto

Their bodies were taken to Milan and hung upside down from the roof of an Esso petrol station in the square. The bodies were photographed as a crowd vented their rage upon them: twenty years of fascist dictatorship and two years of Italian Social Republic have been really too much for the Italians.

The killed partisans

The display of these bodies took place in the same spot where, on August 10, 1944, fifteen partisans were killed by soldiers of the legion Ettore Muti, under the orders of the Germans.

After the end of WW2, the square changed its face due to the increasing traffic road of the city. It was also erected a memorial stone replaced by a monument erected in 1960 by the sculptor Giannino Castiglioni. The monument, bears a bas-relief representing a martyr subjected to execution on the iconography of Saint Sebastian, on the back is labeled <<ALTA L'ILLUMINATA FRONTE CADDERO NEL NOME DELLA LIBERTA'>> which follows the list of 15 killed partisans and the symbols of the Italian Republic and the City of Milan.

Piazzale Loreto in 1955

PROJECT
Milan mayor announced he wants to refurbish the square with a 25 million euro investment. The goal is to reduce traffic of motor vehicles and create a new pedestrian area; but most important thing is to make the square an "attraction" for both citizens and tourists, in memory of what happened.

ADI Museum | Association for the Industrial Design, Compasso d'Oro exhibition
Milan | Zone 8


design > Studio Migliore, Servetto e Lupi Architects

LOCATION
The ex-Enel areas are located in a strategic urban position: near Fabbrica del Vapore and the Monumental Cemetery, the new skyscrapers in Porta Nuova district, the Feltrinelli building (see project) in Porta Volta, and Via Paolo Sarpi (Chinatown). The place, not so far from Parco Sempione, is served by urban transports like the metro line 5 (Monumentale stop).


THE MUSEUM
ADI Museum (Association for the Industrial Design) will be placed in one of the three lots of the ex-Enel area. The new museum will host the Compasso d'Oro projects. The winning products are, to date, 330, but those selected for the ADI are more than 2,300 (the number will increase year by year).

It will be a unique museum, providing multilingual access for each artwork piece, interviews with designers, info about materials and more. This approach will provide to show the pieces, not only according to a chronological or thematic order, but also presenting stories that can support the "Made in Italy" in the future. It will be an exclusive place for design lovers.




PROJECT
The museum is conceived as a sort of Ark where conserving and give life to all the quality species of Italian design. Preserving the beautiful historical central aisle of the ancient electric plant, the whole Collection crowds the walls with a light sign and a strong synergy between natural and artificial light. At the centre comfortable and innovative narrative tables interact with the different publics.

The project offers a complete vision of the collection through the construction of a design “landscape” with several views, that can be implemented and changed with time. In the project all the pieces of the collection are visible and allow the visitor to make a cross trip in the world of design. A flexible project designed for a variable density, that can change in time, with the awarding of other prices. A light sign that identifies with a sort of great “archive chest of drawers” the constant and flexible trait that supports and narrates.

Conceived according to the principles of a permanent and not temporary exhibition, the project is contaminated by a series of multimodal tools to offer a variety of reading plans, of narration and paths, inside memorable and impressive different perspectives. Along the balcony, that surrounds the industrial evidence of the electric machinery of the ancient plant, you can look out into the warehouse space, using a series of technological periscopes that create a connection with this area: advanced tools, able to show, but also to tell in a multimedia language the richness of the materials in stock encouraging the visitors in their discovery path.






HISTORY
Association for the Industrial Design
Since 1956, ADI - Associazione per il Disegno Industriale (Association for the Industrial Design) brings together professionals, researchers, teachers, critics, journalists around the main topics of design: project, energy consumption, recycling and training. ADI has a leading role in the development of the industrial design as a cultural and economic phenomenon. Its purpose is to promote and implement the most conducive conditions to the design for goods and services, through the cultural debate, the dialogue with the institutions and the provision of services. According to ADI, design is the culturally aware project, it is the interface between the individual and collective demand and the producers' supply. The association is involved into products design, services design, visual communication, packaging, interior design and in the design for the environment. Design is the way to create a relationship between products and users through reserch, innovation and engineering. It gives functionality, social values and cultural meaning to the goods and services distributed on the market.

Compasso d'Oro
Established in 1954, ADI Compasso d’Oro Award is the oldest and most influential international design award. Arisen by a Gio Ponti’s idea, the award was organized to pick out the value and quality of the Italian design products. The Compasso d’Oro is awarded on the basis of a pre-selection made by ADI Permanent Observatory of Design, consisting of a commission of experts, designers, critics, historians, specialized journalists, ADI members or external to it, all continuously engaged in collecting information year after year, and in valuing and selecting the best products that may be published on the ADI Design Index. With a step that has no precedent anywhere else in the world of international design, the Italian Cultural Heritage Ministry, Regional Office for Lombardy, with a Decree dated 22 April 2004, declared the Historical Collection of the Compasso d’Oro Award to be "of exceptional artistic and historical interest" and included it in Italy’s national heritage.

DOSSIER. "Milan is blooming", Monocle says


Across Europe, cities are watching the UK's Brexit negotiations closely, looking for their chance to lure businesses and people away from the country - and Milan's mayor is determinated to make sure that his city does just that. Milan has transformed itself into a hotbed of activity and investment in recent years. Sala has been mayor since 2016 and sees Brexit as an opportunity to attract financial services and institutions currently based in the City of London.

He says that the city's outlook has improved since it hosted the Universal Exhibition "Expo Milano 2015", a world fair of international pavilions devoted to food and agriculture solutions for the planet's growing population. Sala served as CEO for Expo 2015, where a host of instructure investment and more than 22 million visitors kicked off an ongoing revival for Milan. As Italy's financial capital, Milan is the highest-carning city of the nation, home to the country's stock exchange and Bocconi University, one of Europe's top schools for business, economics, law and management. Milan is an hub for many sectors -including fashion, design and publishing- that now possesses a wealth of new office space, extended metro lines and high-speed train connections, and an active approach to recruiting new businesses and investments.

But Milan still suffers from the bureaucracy and slow judicial system that bof down procedings throughout the country. Yet Sala says that Milan operates differently to other Italian cities and has done a lot to improve the situation. The mayor has personally worked with companies such as Apple and Microsoft to clear hurdles for their arrival. In March, he travelled to London with a delegation that included Italy's Foreign Minister Angelino Alfano to extol the attraction of Milan to UK investors. It was on the same day that Article 50 was triggered, kicking off the two-year countdown to Brexit.

Yet the left-leaning mayor remains resolute that a healthy city is as much about social values as it is business and says that there is an underminable clash between the protected labour traditions of Italy and the City of London's light-touch regulation. Italy's heavly employment laws are the result of decades of battles for workers rights but have been blamed for slowing job growth and scaring off foreign investment. But new initiatives such as the 2014 Jobs Act have simplied some new contracts while making others more flexible. Sala, who was a CEO in telecoms and banking for 23 years before becoming mayor, views his job as a striking a balance between a favourable business climate and overall welfare. To be mayor of a business centre, he says, means recognising opportunities while working to create a positive environment for residents of every stripe.


What are Milan's chances of becoming the European financial capital post-Brexit?
"When it comes to the financial industry it's clear that cities such as Paris and Frankfurt have advantages over us, with more comprehensive financial markets. We don't expect big banks to relocate here but we think that are already present in Milan may transfer more employees here. We're focused on agencies rather than financial businesses -on the European Medicine Agency specifically, for which we just submitted our dossier and that we plan to hous in the iconic Pirelli Tower. We're also hoping to attract the European Banking Authority."

Is Milan ready to welcome a large UK contigents?
"Milan is becoming more international. You can see it in the foreign investment arriving here this year from Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Apple - a company that's in the process of building a beautiful flagship store near Piazza del Duomo. But it's also apparent with tourism, which has grown 30% since 2014. Ten years ago no one could have imagined that Milan would become an attractive city to visit. We know that in Italy the level of English needs to improve but in Milanese universities we have introduced courses enterely in English and our students study alongside people from around all over the world."

How do you respond to critics who say that foreign investment exacerbates inequality in Milan?
"Competitiviness and solidaritity has always been my motto. I believe that Milan can and should be a competitive city but it would be wrong to sock only financial success, to create a Milan enterely of business and tourism. We must have soliditarity for the Milanese who are struggling and, even if it's a delicate political subject, solidarity for migrants. I led a 100,000-strong march in May in support of welcoming migrants. I think that people of Milan accept this because it's paired with a promise of continued growth in the city."

What about the possibility of foreign investment driving up real-estate costs?
"The cost of living here is low compared to other European cities and there is a lot of property on the market today. But we're also developing new projects. After 10 years of trying to repurpose Milan's seven abandoned rail yards, we're finally moving ahead: of 1.3 million square meters of space, 65% will become parkland and the rest will be new stylish constructions, including new residences with a third for low-income housing. So we will keep building - but we will build for everyone."

How can Milan help businesses mitigate Italy's bureaucratic problem?
"It's a question of will. In business there's a window in which a company want to invest so we need to make thinks happen quickly. Apple came to me beacuse the company wanted to open a flagship in Milan but it required closing an entire square next to the Cathedral for a year. Most politicians would have said no to avoid the criticism of closing a public space for so long but as mayor I couldn't not take the risk. This shop brings an important business and an important symbol to my city. It's true that a burocratic problem exists but Milan can offer its own distinct reality."

What infrastructure does the city need to introduce to make it more attractive?
"Milan already introduced congestion charges for entering the city, with the goal of making the air cleaner. With car sharing companies in town, it seems that young people in the city no longer want to own cars. My idea is to take the metro beyond the city, all the way to Monza. The State train company Trenitalia has already done a lot for our connections, with a high-speed train reaching from here to Italy's major cities, including a newly added connection to Venice. And of course there's the work on the line to France and the important development of international routes."

What else makes Milan attractive to foreign businesses and employees?
"New initiatives by the government case the tax burden on individuals moving or repatriating to Italy who haven't lived here for the past nine years. Those individuals pay a single flat tax or a maximum of 100,000 euro - fantastic for the bankers. Now is that just or unjust? There will be people who disagree, who have been paying taxes here their whole lives but if we say no, we lose the opportunity to bring new business interests, new investments and new job opportunities to Italy."

What would surprise people about the city?
"Milan offers an attractive way of live, with city services that function very well, an excellent healthcare system and 11 universities. The city is growing more youthful too. In the past four years in the City of Milan we've gained 100,000 people, about half of which are young. We believe that the future of a city is dependent on attracting young people so we are ensuring that our universities do their jobs. We're also adding events to the city, such as the new format for the Fashion Weeks, which will feature events all over the city that are open to everyone. The aim is to bring the wide-spread excitement that exists in the city during Salone del Mobile."

Updates CityLife (366,000 sqm / 3,939,591 sqft)
design > Arata Isozaki, Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind + other Italian and foreign architecture firms
Offices, residences, shopping mall, restaurants, cinemas, museum, services, kindergarten, public park, underground parking, new metro stop.

Employees of insurance giant Allianz will receive an e-mail in the next days. The relocation begins in coming weeks: about 3,000 people will fill the 50 storeys of Il Dritto / The Straight One.


It's the first step towards the social revival of the area, followed by the first shops and restaurants that will open on November 30 under the skyscrapers surrounded by green areas. The public park will also host contemporary art sculptures.


Meanwhile, works continue within Lo Storto / The Twisted One as the skyscraper still wait the installation of the sign of insurance group Generali. The podium, which will host shops, restaurants, services and multiplex cinema, is expected to be completed late this year.


On the outside, the construction work of another slice of public park is proceeding. Its definitive version is expected to be inaugurated in 2018 when trees, grass and flowers will fill the western quadrant of the area.


Construction work is taken up in the area of Il Curvo / The Curved One: finally we should see it rise this autumn.


Historical Padiglione 3, one of the former pavilions of the Milano Fiera - Exhibition Center, placed behind Il Dritto / The Straight One, is still under redevelopment. Once completed, it will host a new Museum of Contemporary Art.


The nearest shopping street is going to be re-paved.


Works about restoration of historical walls, gates and twin buildings; construction of new small pavilions and arrangement of the north-eastern area close to Largo Domodossola are still in place.

DOSSIER. Rebuild a Roman amphitheater with... trees and shrubs!

The Roman amphitheater of Milan was a 155-meters-long and 125-meters-wide building with an elliptical plant (similar to the Verona Arena). Built between the end of the 1st and 2nd century, it was able to house up to 35,000 people. In the 4th century, it became a quarry for the construction of other important buildings in the city, including San Lorenzo (if you go down to the basements of the chapel of Sant'Aquilino, you can see the blocks of this amphitheater).

Today, the site is known as "Archaeological Park at the Roman Amphitheatre", but surrounded by other buildings built in different eras: it is born thanks the will of Superintendence of Cultural Heritage which discovered the ancient stones during the 1931 excavations, the works continued after WWII and were completed in 1970s.




The Superintendence of Cultural Heritage, however, intends to carry out a project called "Amphiteatrum viridans" thanks a private investment of 1,250,000 euro. In particular, the project provides for the expansion of the park as well as the arrangment of trees, shrubs and hedges to form the elliptical design of the ancient amphitheater.
