  • Location: Milano, Italy

  • Date: 2007


The project Parco Adriano covers an area of about 500 thousand square meters once occupied by the industrial plants of Magneti Marelli.The immersion in the green of the parks and a careful organization of public spaces for a high standard of comfort and sociality constitute the central idea of the intervention. A distinctive feature of the future Milanese district is a series of towers destined to become the landmark of the new complex.

“A mixture of purely modern and contemporary architectural languages, which makes this area seductive in my opinion. And in the background a lot of countryside, of which large patches of green remain between one building and another, and then there were the Magneti Marelli warehouses. that is, a squat obelisk in reinforced concrete used as a refuge during the Second World War, and finally a series of gigantic pylons, the size of tyrannosaurs, which once supplied Magneti Marelli and the factories of Sesto San Giovanni with electricity."
Ivan Carozzi


The pictures were part of a collective exhibition in Milano at Istituto Italiano di Fotografia in 2019.
