Photographs and booklet documenting
Milano's business district
These photographs are taken in the new gentrified area of Milano, called Garibaldi. After a long period of urban decay, the large empty space manifested by drug users, the Porta Nuova district is now undergoing a massive renewal, thanks to the “Progetto Porta Nuova.” The project, which has been under construction since the late 2000s, includes several modern high rise buildings, cultural centres, and a large city park, amongst which the appartment estates Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) containinig condominium units priced from 3,000 - 12,000 Euro per square metre. As a result of these developments, Porta Nuova has become the new business district of Milan.
