As part of the Participatory Budgeting announced by the City of Milan for the year 2017, we are promoting, together with many enthusiastic participants of a Social Street, an urban redevelopment project for Via Morgagni, a wide tree lined street in the city center of Milan.
The project aims to emphasize what is already there: an oasis of sociality and green in a city, Milan, that lack such fundamental urban quality factors.
The park of via Morgagni, with its spatial qualities, should be considered a Liberty monument, as are the palaces that face it.
It should be mainly a large pedestrian and green area, serving an extremely dense built district, where cars pass through “zones 30” and differentiated pavement areas.
People first, instead of cars.
It may seem a banal concept, but in Milan it is not!
