Where to live in Milan Where to live in Milan Milan is still the heart of Italian fashion, design and finance, the gateway to Italy's industrial north. However, in recent years the city has lost some of its lustre and organisational flair. Anyone who has not visited Milan for several years will notice the difference; there is now a weary air about the city, instead of the bustling confidence of even a decade ago. The restoration of buildings and art treasures has fallen behind that in Rome. The traffic is just as chaotic as in Italy's capital city and even with two airports and several train stations, travel in and out of the city can be difficult, especially in winter.
Now, the two football clubs are committed to give a new image to the Milan stadium with the common goal of giving the city an entertainment district that is alive all year round while creating jobs for more than 3, people.
The multifunctional district is to be built with the highest standards of sustainability and re-establish San Siro as a destination of excellence for sports and entertainment.
The architectural design focuses on two interlocked rings, the iconic element displays the faces of more than 16, fans, giving a message that Milanese people are the link to preserve the legacy and future of football in the district of San Siro.
The Nuovo Stadio Milano is carefully integrated into a bigger picture of the revitalization and transformation of San Siro into a park and entertainment district.
The stadium proposal is to be one of the most sustainable in Europe with the use of renewable energy, rainwater collection, natural heating, and cooling systems.
Additionally, the stadium is to be surrounded by vast green spaces. Populous claims the stadium bowl will bring fans closer to the action and create an extraordinary atmosphere.
The stadium glass facade will bring natural light inside the building.
