A strategic area connecting the urban texture to the new territorial developments in the northern area of Milan

Cava Ronchi is part of the sites identified by the Lombardy region as an area of ​​interest and transformation for territorial marketing.

This place on the border between the municipal areas of Baranzate and Milan is facing a transformation and a rebirth.

The proximity to the ex Expo area is one of the possible elements of interest and connection.

The project starts from a partial remediation process of the area that allows to transform it into a building area. The project will enrich the community with several functions: services, commerce, residence, receptive public spaces and building for the municipality, most probably a library. The masterplan proposal foresees the realization of a new road network that will better connect   the context: the hospital, the Expo area, the railway stations of Rho and Baranzate.

The two-stage project is a program agreement that will lead to the variant of the PGT (Territorial Governance Plan) in Milan and Baranzate and the proposal of an integrated over-municipal intervention program.

The project will be carried out in collaboration with the municipal administrations and agencies to better understand and plan this site, strategically located along the motorway to Varese, with great potential to solve the yet pending problematics.
