A walk through the district

An area with a lot of urban and resident greenery, well connected to both the city center and the hinterland. Shops (both local and linked to large-scale distribution), historical venues and many associations form an important background to places where music and creativity are the absolute protagonists. Here, big factories have often been turned into spaces of industrial archeology which can drive the regeneration of the whole area.

Lifestyle

The neighbourhood, which is green and tranquil, is a strategic location for the connetions with both key urban centers and Linate airport. Although it is not an area full of nightlife, here you will find a lively atmosphere, particularly around the former Caproni aircraft factories, which represent a major example of urban and architectural regenration.
