City of Milano

Milano 2030 is a connected, metropolitan and global city; a city of opportunities, attractive and inclusive, that unites the centre and the outskirts; a green city, alive and resilient; a city made up of neighborhoods and areas that are constantly changing.

It is a city with an extensive integrated mobility system, whose urban structure goes hand in hand with railway-based public transport infrastructures, and where opportunities for revitalization coincide with functions of great metropolitan relevance, job opportunities, and affordable housing for students and young couples. It combines development goals with quality public space, renewing itself starting from intersections, squares, and abandoned areas.

It is a city competing with global metropolises in terms of sustainability, resilience, hospitality and quality of life, yet still understands that the neighborhood is where change happens, highlighting local identities and redefining the relationship between centre and suburbs through the synergy between public and private investments.

This is the Milan of the future according to the goals set by the Piano di Governo del Territorio (PGT), or City Masterplan, of the City Council of Milan, the document defining the strategy governing urban planning in Milan in the coming years. This Plan is designed to meet the requirements of a city that, since the 2015 Universal Exposition, has been experiencing positive development through an increase in international investments, tourism, cultural offerings and services, and is now looking forward towards the organization of the 2026 Winter Olympics.

A city that is once again drawing new inhabitants and now finds itself facing the challenge of combining demographic and economic growth with social inclusiveness and the improvement of environmental conditions and its citizens’ quality of life, to finally fulfill its vision of a truly metropolitan dimension.

Milano 2030 seeks to hasten these developments and to lead us into the Milan of the future by guiding us through the places and projects of the city of tomorrow: from great metropolitan-scale changes to transport hubs, that will be gateways to the city; from the seven railway yards that constitute the cornerstone of a widespread process of urban revitalization through new parks to the Forestation plan; from the development of University campuses to the reopening of the Navigli (a system of canals running through the city) and the enhancement of piazzas and public spaces, the backbone of the neighborhoods that make up the city.
