The Ex Macello site is a disused area spanning around 16 hectares, the site of the communal slaughter house and of the poultry and rabbit market in the real estate compendium of the Milan wholesale market.

Situated in the south-east district  of the city, in the district of Calvairate in Municipality 4, the area is a stone’s throw away from the Milan Porta Vittoria station, which is served by the suburban lines that link the metropolitan area to the city centre through the railway link. This enables the business centre of Porta Nuova and Repubblica to be reached in a few minutes, as with the Rogoredo station, which is served by high-speed trains, and the Forlanini station, linked to Linate airport by the M4. The Milan 2030 Plan identifies one of the “Piani Attuativi Obbligatori” (obligatory implementation plans) on site, one of the areas in which is provided a specific town planning regulation aimed at managing the regeneration of the areas. It provides a mix of urban functions including social housing at accessible prices.

Composed of degraded and abandoned buildings dating from the first few decades of the 1900s, the area can be seen as an important element for the district’s regeneration, straddling residential areas – such as the popular Molise Calvairate building complex – and a series of large enclosures undergoing redevelopment, such as: the former “Frigoriferi Milanesi” (Milanese Refrigerators)site, today an area for exhibition and cultural spaces and work studios; the Porta Vittoria district built on the former freight terminal , which is in completion phase, where residential, commercial, tertiary and accommodation facilities will be provided, in addition to a linear park and a sports centre; the  “Magazzini Generali” (General Markets) complex, which is subject to a development plan that foresees the restructuring of existing buildings. Reinventing the former slaughterhouse is an opportunity to redevelop a large part of the city to promote urban and environmental quality and social and operational mix, by forming synergies with surrounding transformations.

Il sito Ex Macello è un’area dismessa di circa 16 ha, sede del macello comunale e del mercato avicunicolo, nel compendio immobiliare del mercato all’ingrosso di Milano. Situato nel quadrante sud-est della città, nel quartiere di Calvairate nel Municipio 4, l’area si trova a pochi passi dalla stazione di Milano Porta Vittoria, servita dalle linee suburbane che connettono l’area metropolitana al centro città attraverso il passante ferroviario.

Questo consente di raggiungere in pochi minuti il centro direzionale di Porta Nuova e Repubblica, così come la stazione Rogoredo, servita dall’Alta Velocità e la stazione Forlanini, connessa all’aeroporto di Linate dalla M4. Il Piano Milano2030 individua nel sito uno dei “Piani attuativi obbligatori”, aree in cui è prevista una disciplina urbanistica specifica volta a regolare la rigenerazione delle aree, prevedendo un mix di funzioni urbane tra cui l’insediamento di abitazioni a prezzi accessibili. 

Composta da immobili abbandonati e in stato di degrado risalenti ai primi decenni del ‘900, l’area rappresenta un tassello importante per la rigenerazione del quartiere, a cavallo tra ambiti residenziali - come il complesso di edilizia popolare Molise Calvairate - e una serie di grandi recinti oggetto di riconversione, quali: il comparto degli ex Frigoriferi Milanesi, oggi sede di spazi espositivi, culturali e studi professionali; il quartiere di Porta Vittoria sorto sulle aree dell’ex scalo merci, in fase di completamento, che insedierà funzioni residenziali, commerciali, terziarie e ricettive oltre a un parco lineare e un centro sportivo; il complesso dei Mercati Generali, oggetto di un piano di sviluppo che prevede la ristrutturazione degli immobili esistenti. Reinventare l’Ex Macello è l’occasione per ricomporre un grande pezzo di città in nome della qualità urbana e ambientale, del mix sociale e funzionale, creando sinergie con le trasformazioni intorno. 


Expected plan
Regenerating a degraded area by maximising urban and environmental quality, and social and operational mix including social housing,  in synergy with the context.
