Milan, the main city of northern Italy and one of the most populous metropolitan areas in Europe, is the most important laboratory of modern and contemporary architecture in Italy.Starting from the experiences of Muzio and Portaluppi in the early decades of the century, Milan became in the 30s an important pole for the Italian and international architectural culture. Between the 50s and 70s, the architectural experimentation leads to the identification of a "Milanese Style" through the work of Gardella, Caccia Dominioni, Zanuso and Magistretti. The last decades of the 20th century are characterized by a recovery of the tradition with the Milanese school of Rossi and Gregotti, and the beginning of the transformation process of the former abandoned industrial areas.
Today the city is experiencing a period of extraordinary activities through the projects of the most important international architects, preparing the city for the big event of the Expo Milano 2015.
Tours are available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
