Porta Nuova is one of the biggest requalification projects in Europe. Through the restoration of three neighborhoods, Garibaldi, Varesina and Isola, it stretches out for over 290,000 mq. The area blends together the local cultural identity with a European vision. Green parks, squares, bridges and paths ensure the connection between the three sections and provides the perfect setting for a relaxing stroll.
We will kick off the visit learning about the history of the first skyscrapers in Milan, in Piazza della Repubblica. The area of the central station, with the Pirelli Skyscrapers and the Galfa Tower, holds interesting architectural stories.
From here, we will be visiting the Porta Nuova station: Diamante Tower with the Diamantini, smaller elements connected to the main building, the Solaria Tower, the Isola neighborhood with the new Palace of the Region, Catella Foundation, the Vertical Wood and Gae Aulenti square with the Unicredit Skyscraper. You will continue along Corso Como, with a stop to 10 Corso Como, High Tech and finishing at Eataly, the popular food store, in the ex Smeraldo Theatre.
