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.During the twentieth century, in the early decades as well as after the World War II, Milan has acquired an important role for the Italian and the international architecture thanks to the work of Giuseppe Terragni, Gio Ponti, BBPR, Caccia Dominioniand Aldo Rossi, that led to the identification of a specific “style Milano”.
Over the past decade, and with the boost of the World Expo in 2015, Milan liveda period of extraordinary change. Two major urban regeneration projects, Porta Nuova and CityLife, and specific interventions as the Vertical Forest, Fondazione Prada, Feltrinelli, Bocconi University and Mudec, have seen the work of the best-known Italian and international architects.
