This exposition was born from the intention to make visible the hidden part of Milan. At the “Triennale” it is told through a wide selection of unrealized projects of Milan, what the city could have been if everything had gone as it should go during the three great historical stages of its transformation: the nineteenth-century “Piano Beruto” with the axis of Via Dante, the area of “Castello Sforzesco” and new neighborhoods; the Master Plan of Cesare Albertini in the thirties with the first skyscrapers of Piazza San Babila, the axis of the station, Piazza Diaz and the first Fair, the Milan green rationalists; the great reconstruction in the years of the economic miracle with the vision of the open city, the administrative center and the conquest of the suburbs, up to large construction projects over the last twenty years.
A series of architectural sketches really fascinating:
