Via Tortona

Overview

Fashion and design hubs

From a rural, industrial and worker village to a modern hub of creation and innovation in Milan. Here past, present and future intertwine seamlessly until they merge into a unique space, one of the most important cultural hubs of Milan.

It is Zona Tortona, between Navigli, Porta Genova and Via Solari, a few minutes by tram or metro from Piazza Duomo and the Columns of San Lorenzo. Here you can immerse yourself in a concentration of fashion, design and architectural requalifications of the twentieth-century factories signed by David Chipperfield, Antonio Citterio and Matteo Thun. You can get there, perhaps, by crossing the brand new Biki cycle path, a more than symbolic passage between the tracks of Porta Genova dedicated to the Milanese designer Elvira Leonardi Bouyeure.

Not far from the huge Complex of the former Ansaldo, which today houses the laboratories of the Teatro alla Scala, the multipurpose center BASED in Milan, but above all the Mudec, the Museum of cultures that awaits you with its permanent collections, photographic exhibitions or the creations of design masters from all over the world. Without forgetting, always in the area, the Armani Silos, museum-temple of fashion dedicated to the career of the famous designer.
