The Palazzine represent a key element for the process of urban regeneration underway around the popular Molise Calvairate building complex, which includes the former “Frigoriferi Milanesi” (Milanese Refrigerators) site, which is presently the setting of exhibition and culture spaces and work studios.

The six “Palazzine Liberty” complex is found in the south-east district of the city, in the Calvairate area in Municipality 4, three kilometres away from Milan Cathedral and 100 m from Milan Porta Vittoria railway station, served by suburban lines that connect the metropolitan area to the city centre along the railway link. The infrastructure means that the Milano Porta Garibaldi and Repubblica stations, in the business centre and Rogoredo station, which are served by high-speed trains, can be reached in a few minutes, as can Forlanini station too, which is linked to the Linate airport by the future M4 metro line which will stop 1 km from the site. Adjacent to the “Ex Macello” site, the Palazzine was part of the broader public slaughter house industry developed in the late thirties and was specifically the part intended for offices, concierge and residence in the Annonary City, of which they represent its historical and architectural evidence.

 The Palazzine, today disused and one of them occupied without authorization, represent a key element for the process of urban regeneration underway around the popular Molise Calvairate building complex, which includes the former “Frigoriferi Milanesi” (Milanese Refrigerators) site, which is presently the setting of exhibition and culture spaces and work studios; the Porta Vittoria district built on the areas of the former freight terminal, in completion phase, which will provide of residential, commercial, tertiary and accommodation facilities in addition to a linear park and a sports centre; and the “Magazzini Generali” (General Markets) complex which is undergoing a development plan which foresees the restructuring of existing buildings. Re-inventing the Palazzine Liberty is an extraordinary opportunity to have the recovery of building heritage of historical-architectural value coincide with the establishment of new services, in the district and in the city.

Il complesso immobiliare delle sei “Palazzine Liberty” si trova nel quadrante sud est della città, nel quartiere Calvairate nel Municipio 4, a 3 km dal Duomo e a 100 m dalla stazione ferroviaria Milano Porta Vittoria, servita dalle linee suburbane che connettono l’area metropolitana al centro città lungo il passante ferroviario.

L’infrastruttura consente di raggiungere in pochi minuti le stazioni di Milano Porta Garibaldi e Repubblica, nel centro direzionale, la stazione Rogoredo, servita dall’Alta Velocità, e la stazione Forlanini, connessa all’aeroporto di Linate dalla futura linea metropolitana M4 che fermerà a 1 km dal sito. Adiacenti al sito “Ex Macello”, le Palazzine facevano parte del più ampio comparto del macello pubblico, realizzato alla fine degli anni ’30, ed erano in particolare la parte destinata a uffici, portineria e residenza della città annonaria, di cui rappresentano testimonianza storica e architettonica. 

Oggi dismesse, di cui una occupata senza titolo, rappresentano un elemento chiave per il processo di rigenerazione urbana in corso attorno al complesso di edilizia popolare Molise Calvairate, che include gli 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 le Palazzine Liberty costituisce un’occasione straordinaria per far coincidere il recupero del patrimonio edilizio di valore storico-architettonico con l’attivazione di nuovi servizi, al quartiere e alla città.
