City of Milano

Milano 2030 is a connected, metropolitan and global city; a city of opportunities, attractive and inclusive, that unite the centre and the outskirts; a green city, livable 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 a 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 legal framework 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. A city that is once again drawing new inhabitants and now finds itself facing the challenge of solidifying this development plan by suffusing its positive effects throughout the city; 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.

Milan 2030 seeks to hasten these developments and to lead us into the Milan of the future by guiding us through the places, projects and voices of the city of tomorrow: from great metropolitan-scale changes to transport hubs as that will be gateways to the city; from the seven railway links that constitute the cornerstone of a widespread process of urban revitalization affecting Milan’s green areas 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.
