Urban Center – Milano 2030
Exhibition produced by Comune di Milano: Giuseppe Sala, Sindaco, Pierfrancesco Maran, Assessore a Urbanistica, Verde e Agricoltura.
Milan is taking part in the XXII Triennale di Milano International Exhibition with the opening of the new Urban Center, which hosts the Milano 2030 exhibition.
A public place of storytelling, study, and discussion, set to become a new hub and meeting place for institutions and professionals, and for the people of Milan and all those who wish to find out more about the issues involved in the future of the city. This is the mission of the new Urban Center, now opening inside the Palazzo dell’Arte. Its aim is to strengthen the links between urban development, the dissemination of culture, and active participation. The new spaces made available to the City of Milan, with over 100 square metres on two floors, have been designed by Matteo Ghidoni and Enrico Dusi, winners of a public competition in which 69 firms took part. The Urban Center will tell the story of the city’s development, starting with the Milano 2030 exhibition under the artistic direction of Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli. The event is curated by the research and design collective Fosbury Architecture as part of the XXII International Exhibition.
The Urban Center will host a series of public events organised by the City of Milan and a public programme devoted to key aspects of city development, including urban forestation, suburban renewal, and major events, to mention but a few. It will also promote studies and research into the transformation of Milan and other cities around the world.
