Milan is among the liveliest metropolises in Europe: fashion and design are the sectors that make it the main business centre in Italy. The identity of the city is legible by observing the skyline dominated by imposing skyscrapers: the Velasca tower, the Pirelli building and the Vertical garden are some of the architectures that embody the progressive attitude of the city. A vertical propensity that began in the 14th century with work on the Duomo, a recognized symbol in the world that boasts around 3,500 sculptures and a spire that exceeds 100 meters in height. The neighbourhoods around draw a heterogeneous and constantly changing scenario; the Ticino district, near the Navigli, a place known for social life, is the site chosen to imagine a building that best interprets the neighbourhood’s lifestyle. The Design Factory will attract new cultural thrusts by promoting training events for artists and designers. Urban workshops and teaching rooms will make up a complex for culture designed to be at the service of the local community. A place for interaction is in one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in the city.
