Le Guide ai Quartieri
5Vie is the centre of an art and cultural itinerary that connects Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Archaeological Civic Museum, Basilica di Sant’Ambrogio and many other places of cultural interest. Take a walk surrounded by the ancient Roman ruins, the museums, the cloisters, the courtyards and the beautiful churches of an undiscovered Milan, famous for its beauty… its hidden beauty! Old Town’s houses often hide beautiful courtyards behind their austere facades. Sometimes you can glimpse them through an open door… During the Renaissance, the most important people of the Sforza court were meeting in the Casa degli Atellani offered by Ludovico il Moro to his faithful artisans Atellani. Cecilia Gallerani, the duke’s favourite one, or Leonardo da Vinci, who was taking care both of the Last Supper and of his vineyard, were taking part to parties, banquets and entertaining events in the garden. Hidden in a labyrinth of narrow streets, the quiet San Sepolcro square is the symbol of thousands of years of history and it is very important for Milan: during the Roman era it was the location of the ancient Forum, beating heart of the town; during the Crusades, a church dedicated to the Empty Tomb was built; in the 17th century, one of the first public library in Europe was opened, the “Ambrosiana”; in 1919, in a building from the Renaissance period, Mussolini founded the Italian Fasci of Combat. Just a few steps from San Sepolcro Sq, you will find Bagnera Street. The popularity of this very narrow and dark alley is due to the “Bagnera Street’s monster”, or “Milan monster”, a dreadful serial killer of the 19th century, who used an axe as a weapon and who hid the corpse of his poor victims in the walls of a cellar, by taking advantage of the darkness of this unpopular alley. The 5VIE district is the symbol of Milan’s hard work. This part of the city hosts high standards commercial activities, such as beautiful ancient handcraft workshops. With the aim of promoting these activities and of discovering the numerous handcraft workshops, this itinerary has been created, with the collaboration of Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte.

A stone's throw from the Arco della Pace and its bustling nightlife, the city changes face as visitors enter the Chinese quarter with via Canonica, via Polo Sarpi and via Bramante as the main thoroughfares. The area developed its urban identity in the second half of the nineteenth century when a neighbourhood for residential, production and commercial purposes was built upon the grounds of some surrounding monasteries. The first Chinese presence dates back to the ‘20s and ‘30s but it is only since the late ‘70s that there was a more massive immigration move which gave the area its current status as a bustling Chinatown.

The district takes its name both from some areas that bordered old farmhouses in the area - called "isole" - and from the actual isolation of its urban context, almost disconnected from the rest of the city. It developed at the end of the nineteenth century following the creation of the Turin to Venice railway line that interrupted the continuity of the ancient via Comasina between the current corso Como, south of the railway, and via Borsieri, around which the entire area grew. Since then this unique isolation has enabled the district to maintain its specific identity, fostered by an efficacious mix of residential buildings and workshops, which, together with the spread of cultural associations, clubs and meeting areas, make it one of the liveliest areas in Milan. Within the district, consisting mainly of traditional courtyard houses with balconies, there are numerous Art Nouveau buildings and some interesting examples of Milanese rationalism like the Ghiringhelli, Toninello and Rustici-Comolli houses, built in the thirties by Pietro Lingeri and Giuseppe Terragni. In Piazzale Lagosta stands one of the most elegant tenement blocks in the city (1924-25): in the courtyard, on the site of the ancient Mojazza cemetery, lies a plaque commemorating the small grave, near a mass grave, in which the poet Giuseppe Parini was buried. The new urban renovation of the Garibaldi-Repubblica area, with a vast structure of green spaces and pedestrian areas, has finally linked Isola to the rest of the city. The northern access point to the city, Porta Garibaldi is located in the centre of Piazza XXV Aprile and was built by the architect Giacomo Moraglia between 1826 and 1828. The current neoclassical arch, originally dedicated to Francis I of Austria to commemorate his visit to Milan in 1825, was later named after Giuseppe Garibaldi to mark his victory against the Austrians at San Fermo (1859). In recent years the axis that comprises corso Garibaldi, Piazza XXV Aprile and corso Como has undergone a lot of gentrification with the opening of numerous bars, shops and clubs and is now one of the main hubs of Milan's hectic nightlife.

Visite turistiche
Grandiose symbol of Sforza’s Milan, the Castello is the city’s most important defensive monument. The first nucleus, built by Galeazzo II Visconti between 1358 and 1368, was a defence fortification of the medieval Porta Giovia. Extended between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, it was rebuilt with a quadrangular shape and four towers at the behest of Francesco Sforza (1450-66). After his death it was transformed into a sumptuous palace. The most important artists of the time, including Leonardo and Bramante, left their marks on the most characteristic areas - the Piazza d’armi, the Corte ducale with the Portico dell’Elefante, the Rocchetta and the Ponticella. The Castello, however, is not only a testimony of the past but also a cultural centre as it hosts the Milanese civic museums. Then, on December 7th each year, the area is packed with the stalls for the "Oh bej! Oh Bej!" market that marks the anniversary of S. Ambrogio, the city’s patron saint.

The park covers an area of ​​approximately 40 acres along the route that, from the Duomo, leads to the Passo del Sempione through the Arco della Pace. Construction started in 1890 and it was designed by Emilio Alemagna to locate the pavilions of the 1906 International Expo and is now Milan’s park par excellence, much frequented by sports enthusiasts and families, especially on weekends. However, it is not only the green lung of the city but also a place that narrates the history of Milan's past. For example, the Ponte delle Sirenette is the bridge named after the four statues that characterize it. Constructed in the Dongo ironworks in 1842, it is believed to be the first metal bridge built in Italy and was positioned on what is now via Visconti di Modrone after the city’s ring of canals was covered. Another interesting story is that of the “acqua marcia”, the fountain which in olden times was considered a panacea for health thanks to its high sulphur content. By climbing the Torre Branca (108.60 m high), commissioned in 1932 by the municipality of Milan, visitors can get an amazing view of the city. The tower was designed by Gio Ponti and assembled in just two and a half months to inaugurate the fifth Triennial (1933). Another attraction located in the park is the Civic Aquarium, the only building left of those specifically constructed for the International Expo in 1906. After the restoration, completed in 2006, the interior space was designed to comprise didactic exhibition and research areas with numerous pools of fresh and marine water containing more than a hundred species of aquatic organisms. Last but not least, the park is also home to a rather special public library: it was awarded the Medaglia d'Oro at the tenth Trienniale in 1954 for its splendid architecture.

Exiting Sempione Park in a north-westerly direction, visitors come face to face with one of the most important neoclassical monuments of the city: the Arco della Pace, built in 1807 and designed by Luigi Cagnola. Together with two toll gates it represents the place where the strada del Sempione entered Milan and was built in the Napoleonic era to connect Milan and Paris; the current Corso Sempione initiates from here. From an urban point of view the construction of the first section dates from the late nineteenth-early twentieth century and is now a prestigious residential area. In recent years, the area in the immediate vicinity of the Arco della Pace has become an important centre of nightlife in Milan with an appealing selection of dining options. Another place of interest close by is the Arena Civica - designed by Luigi Canonica and built in 1806 with materials from the demolition of the Castello’s fortifications - which hosts concerts and cultural and sporting events.
