Barona

Overview

The green lung of Milan

It is one of the areas of Milan with the highest concentration of green. And it could not be otherwise, given that this, at least until a century ago, was open countryside, a tiny rural suburb located outside the Spanish walls, then incorporated, like the other peripheral districts, during the slow but constant urban expansion of the twentieth century.

It is the Barona, a district between the stop of the green line Romolo and that of Famagosta, near the Naviglio Grande and the Pavese. Embedded, we said, but not completely engulfed, since today it appears as an urban fabric in a slow process of sewing, street after street, by university realities such as the IULM or by the nascent architectures and author requalifications, which add to the already existing multifunctional aggregation places of Barrio's and Villaggio Barona.

In essence, from the suburbs to Milan's cool new district that's well worth a visit. Perhaps to reach the evocative Andrea Campagna Park, the real green lung of the neighborhood with its rows of centenary trees, waterways and numerous characteristic farmhouses. Trails and streets, then, represent a real paradise for lovers of relaxing walks and bike rides.
