Piazzale Martesana is located in Milan's Zone 2 on the Viale Monza road axis, about 300 metres from the line 1 Gorla and Precotto metro stations.

Nota fase 2: Considerate le numerose richieste pervenute all’Amministrazione scrivente da parte dei Team partecipanti alla fase 2 di Reinventing Cities di organizzare un incontro di Q&A (ideato quale “FAQ” rafforzata in forma orale) per formulare domande sulle modalità di presentazione dei relativi progetti per i siti oggetto di bando, la medesima Amministrazione accoglie tale richiesta e allo scopo organizzerà un incontro collettivo avente le seguenti caratteristiche: 

  • Tale incontro collettivo sarà aperto ai soli Team partecipanti alla Fase 2 di Reinventing e sarà direttamente con il RUP della procedura, Arch. Franco Zinna, più altri suoi collaboratori dotati di competenze tecniche adeguate allo scopo, che non fanno in alcun modo parte della Commissione giudicatrice. 

  • Tale incontro avverrà in un’unica data comunicata a tutti i Team coinvolti, i quali potranno partecipare attraverso i loro rappresentanti/delegati e l’incontro si svolgerà sulla piattaforma Teams.

  • Tale incontro sarà registrato e pubblicato sulle Data Room di C40 per ogni sito. Pertanto, previamente, dovrà essere sottoscritto dai Team partecipanti interessati all’incontro un modulo di consenso informato Privacy. 

  • L’Amministrazione si riserva, comunque, attraverso il RUP ed i suoi collaboratori, di dare risposte immediate laddove possibile (domande e risposte che verranno anch’esse pubblicate nelle Data Room), mentre, alle domande che richiedono valutazioni approfondite, verrà data risposta in seguito attraverso le FAQ scritte, le quali saranno pubblicate nelle Data Room presenti sul sito di C40 di ogni sito. 

  • All’esito dell’incontro verrà, altresì, redatto un verbale che sarà anch’esso pubblicato nelle Data Room di C40 per ogni sito. 

A tal fine, l’appuntamento via Teams è fissato nella giornata del 26/4/2023 dalle ore 14:00 sino indicativamente alle ore 17:00 (prevedendo un tempo di 15 minuti circa a Team).

The presence of the Naviglio Martesana, along with numerous existing and newly planned green areas in the area, defines an ecological corridor that characterises the territory. The surrounding urban context is primarily residential, with neighbourhood services, as well as significant areas of Public Residential Construction. Numerous health, sports, and educational structures have been identified, as well as significant urban-environmental transformation initiatives, such as that of the Greco-Breda airport, which will create new connections with the fabric west of the railway (Bicocca), a project called "Innesto," the winner of the first Reinventing Cities competition. New areas are also being developed for social housing, which will be available for rent and sale at regulated prices. Piazzale Martesana is currently used as a large parking lot with an electrical substation operated by Atm. The large public car park that occupies most of the area is a type of caesura and is characterised by the heat island effect. The current PGT incorporates the site into the transportation infrastructure and calls for the surfaces to be de-paved as part of the green infrastructure network.

The project intends to reinvent the square by leveraging PGT's specific discipline to kickstart a regeneration process that includes timely interventions such as reconnection of public spaces, reforestation and environmental regeneration, and the establishment of services and/or quotas of urban functions. The project's goal is to redevelop the area by transforming its functional purpose into another type of public service, which could include a mix of social services such as Social Housing as well as necessary and compatible ancillary urban functions, including de-paving and the integration of activities, spaces, and active ground floors that promote social inclusion, employment opportunities, sustainability and improve quality of life.

Expected Land Use
The space will be redeveloped by incorporating functional and social mixes, as well as ERS quotas at affordable prices, compatible functions, and de-paving interventions. Green spaces and related initiatives will be favoured, promoting a more sustainable lifestyle and social integration.

Type of Property transfer intended
Surface rights are established by the property with an indication of a minimum price. It will be possible to transfer additional building rights in accordance with the procedures outlined in the PGT, as well as by submitting a request to the Municipality of Milan, depending on the proposal.


Plot Area: The site is approximately 11,700 square metres and is currently used as a public car park level with an electricity substation managed by ATM.

Site Ownership:
Municipality of Milan.

Deadline for the submission of Phase 2 (finalist teams): 30 November 2023, 2pm (local time Milan)
