Zona Tortona and the districts in Milan best suited to living

One of the recognised characteristics of those who live in Milan is their dynamism. Living in Milan for work means finding a fertile environment for networking, for business opportunities, and more generally for the opportunities offered by the city. Not only work, offices and business: Milan's neighbourhoods also seem to change quickly. The areas of the city of Milan are subject to a programmed change that cyclically transforms the skyline of the city, enhancing private spaces, with entire residential complexes restored to new splendor, and public spaces. The road network is also improved thanks to new roads and public transport and areas are redeveloped and brought back to life.

The continuous rebirth of Milan's districts

This way of designing the city stems from the policy of enhancing the neighbourhoods which start from public spaces. The Milanese government plan illustrates how the redevelopment of squares, streets, sidewalks and parks is a route chosen to strengthen the identity of those who live nearby.

Starting with the creation of new urban spaces to places of aggregation such as squares or parks. The plan foresees 675,000 square metres of greenery and public spaces positioned in place of former railway stations, disused sheds or buildings to be demolished.

But how does the real estate market react to infrastructural changes in the city?

The real estate market in Milan

Of the 88 districts and their communities that animate the capital of Lombardy, there are many that over the last few decades have undergone restyling, many in which the municipality and the housing market are investing in or will invest. But how is the real estate market in Milan? According to demographic surveys, Milan is basically a city of students, young people and single workers. It is the place in Italy with the highest percentage of single person families. Singles living alone exceed even 50% of the total family units. According to a research by Idealista, the preferred size required for apartments is the small-medium one in buying (two-room and three-room apartments) and a small one in renting (one-room and two-room apartments).

The neighborhoods of Milan where you can find home

Sud Ripamonti - Scalo di porta Romana-Brenta

Defined by the Milanese as the "Prada Foundation area", it is a large area that is enjoying and will enjoy numerous public and private investments. A large public park will be built where the station of Piazzale Lodi once stood.


The district takes its name from the condition of real isolation of its urban context compared to the rest of the city, since the station of Porta Garibaldi was built in the mid-nineteenth century. Since then, this isolation has allowed the district to maintain a specific identity, favoured by a functional mix of residence and workshop, which together with the spread of cultural associations, clubs and meeting places make it one of the liveliest and most characteristic of Milan.

Porta Nuova

Porta Nuova is a large area subject to extensive urban and architectural redevelopment near the city walls. The district extends from the Porta Garibaldi railway station in Milan to Piazza della Repubblica, from Porta Nuova to Palazzo Lombardia, passing through via Melchiorre Gioia. The main objective of the project is to reconnect, through the strengthening of the Management Centre, the districts of Porta Nuova (including the area of the former Varesine), Porta Garibaldi and Isola. In this area many skyscrapers have arisen in recent years that have significantly altered the skyline of the city.

Zona Tortona: where fashion, design and creativity coexist

Zona Tortona is a district of creativity and experimentation. Situated behind the Porta Genova railway station, in the last fifteen years it has become an international centre for fashion and design: many of the neighbourhood's projects have been the result of operations to recover industrial archaeology. During the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Tortona Design Week is the reference point for the Fuorisalone.

In addition to the presence of photography, design and fashion ateliers, research centres, art workshops, exhibition halls, the district also hosts numerous cultural spaces and museums (Fondazione Pomodoro, Armani Silos and Spazio Oca). The area is also enlivened by a series of clubs, cult cinemas and alternative bookstores.

Several residential projects are under construction in the Via Tortona area, and LivingTortona is one of most interesting for its potential. LivingTortona is where design, passion for detail and quality of life coexist and feed each other.

A newly built residential area that aims to combine the taste of design with maximum living comfort. A contemporary living project, signed by the DC10 studio, in which every detail is an invitation to well-being. Within this elegant context, a team of architects has selected furniture and accessories that best suit the needs of spaces and people: Technogym, the Italian company and world leader in solutions for fitness, wellness and sport will bring to the homes of Living Tortona the beauty and technology of Run Personal, the state of the art treadmill for those who want to live a professional training experience and at the same time entertainment.
