The vanguard of Italian architecture
Milan, capital of Lombardy, is a city steeped in history everywhere. From the Roman colony of San Lorenzo, through the Paleochristian basilicas of Sant’Ambrogio, San Nazaro in Brolo, San Simpliciano and Sant’Eustorgio — which still stand today –, to the modern and contemporary constructions of the current period of architectural activity caused by Expo 2015 and signed by renowned international architects.
Milan has important ambassadors in the world of architecture such as Massimiliano Fuksas and Renzo Piano and with works of architects of all nationalities including: the Porta Nuova business district, the residential and business district Citylife, the new building of the Università Bocconi all’Ansaldo, within the City of Culture, and the Nuovo Fondazione Prada Museum of contemporary art. All of this makes Milan an architectural center in full boil that must not be missed.
