This was an industrial area, abandoned after WWII,
part of the plot was occupied by Varesine railways station until 1964:

same point of view (2010):

during the last three decades of XXth century part of this area was occupied by Varesine luna-park:

a B-movie scene (La Città Sconvolta, caccia spietata ai rapitori) filmed there:

during excavation works for Solaria tower:

parts of the old station were still there.
