A walk through the district

An area in southern Milan which was born as a working-class neighbourhood and today serves an an important connection between the city and the countryside. Several farmsteads still survive to these days and are used for social and cultural activities. The hear of the neighbourhood is the Parco Agricolo Sud, which enhances the reclamation work started by the Cistercians back in the XII century.

What to expect

This peripheral area with a strong multiethnic presence is undergoing a regeneration and upgrading process thanks to the work of many organizations. Markets such as that of Piazzale Ferrara are engaged in a constant dialogue with old Milanese traditions. There are also typical trattorias serving local cuisine.

Lifestyle

This area is particularly suitable for those who are looking for home in a place which is still economically affordable yet destined to a rapid real estate appreciation thanks to the good connections to the public transportation system and the contact with nature. This is te right place for you if you appreciate multiethnicity, Milanese traditions, and community spirit to participate in social projects that can contribute to shape the city of the future.

What not to expect

This area is not suitable for those who love international style homes and have no interest in the charity sector nor in cultural and leisure initiatives.

Real Estate market

The area is mainly residential and offers postwar period council housing, but also rural buildings, banister houses, detached houses and apartment buildings dating from the ‘30s. Often, streets don’t have a homogeneous system because old settlements have been incorporated into the city and coexist in conflict with the recent residential towers.
