Hi,
I am really impressed with Milan skyscraper (and not only) development. It is very surprising that so many office towers are build in Milan – economical capital of Italy, the country where GDP growth within last 15 years was close to “zero”. Also demographic figures are not so much positive, when we compare to England or France…
Are those investments the result of reforms of Italian economy which changes from industrial oriented into service, R&D, BPO, finance sectors?

Reducing everything to a point of GDP, which then is not an index of wealth, it seems to me wrong. In Italy there is a sub-economy based on resources (see Abruzzo, which was not the land of industries, but its economy was based on university, with one of the most important universities in Italy).
However ... in general economic terms ... GDP covers the whole Italy, but if the only concern GDP Milan, would be the highest in Europe

I am talking about GDP growth. Well I know that GDP per capita is one of the highest when we consider only north part of a country. But could you present any informations connected with GDP growth in regions like Lombardy, Piemont, Trento? How about transformation of Italian economy?

Actually you're talkin' about birth rate (anyway in last years it increased)
But population increased a lot thanks to immigrants: in 10 years Italian population grew from 56 mio to over 60 mio
Than if we focus on Milan region the percentage of increasing is higher

I think Milan chose to risk and develop. There is the world expo expected in 2015, there has been a thirst for so many years of good quality office buildings (most are housed in old/pre-existing buildings). There is also an optymism about the future of the city economy which has not been strong in the past.

We all hope it will end up with new growth for the city and the country. But the risk of ending up with empty skeletons is there too.

Only the future will tell

Actually, thanks to immigrants mainly from eastern Europe and north and central Africa, the population of Italy has grew considerably in the recent years. In fact, it has just recently surpassed the 60 million units.
Most of them live in the north part of the country (still the reachest one).
It's true that the growth of the GDP of the whole country has been little over the last years but if you would analize the data in each regions you would see that some of them have been growing a lot more than others.
Milan has always been a rich city with one of the highest GDP pc in the whole continent. What's more, the universal EXPO will be held in Milan in 2015. Therefore, the city is working hard to show itself to the world as a new modern and efficient metropoli that can compete with the most important cities in the world.
I'm sure it'll look amazing, lots is going on now and we're just in 2009.
