GATEWAY TO THE NEW MILAN

A high-rise hub worthy of Milan’s reputation for style has sprung up in a formerly neglected space in the heart of the city. It is arguably the most ambitious urban renewal project Italy has ever seen.

Description

A cluster of stunning skyscrapers adds a unique edge to the Milan skyline as the city gears up to host Expo Milano 2015. After a long period of decline, Milan’s Porta Nuova district has undergone a dramatic makeover in what is widely hailed as Italy’s biggest-ever urban revitalisation scheme.
