Porta Nuova

The future is here. Porta Nuova is the new centre for Milan. It is Italy’s most significant urban redevelopment project to date. Through the creation of a large area, located near Duomo, between Brera and Piazza della Repubblica, the three districts of Garibaldi, Varesine and Isola are finally reconnected and enhanced by a shared pedestrianised zone of over 160,000 sqm, offering 5 km of cyclepath, a plethora of urban infrastructures and a large public park, I Giardini di Porta Nuova (Porta Nuova Gardens) which is 90,000 sqm. The integration of residential apartments, offices, retail spaces and cultural centres – all with the highest quality and energy standards – makes Porta Nuova a unique example of an eco-sustainable, mixed-use urban environment in Italy.
The new Milan starts from Gae Aulenti Square, “the square of the future”, one of the most modern locations of Milan, which has been built at the feet of the new, tallest skyscreaper in Italy. A stylish, iconic and beautiful public space with sculptural features including a continuous flowing circle of seating surrounding a vast reflecting pool, 60 metres in diameter that reflects the colours of the changing seasons and surrounding buildings. The result is a beautifully crafted, fitting contemporary to Italy’s grand tradition of elegant “Piazzas” (square).
Furthermore Piazza Gae Aulenti is the strategic point to enjoy the view of new Milan’s skyline and to reach Corso Como, best known for its nightlife and for the presence of famous nightclubs. This delightful pedestrian street is a perfect place for an Aperitivo and hosts a number of fancy and trendy fashion boutiques.
