2008 Corso Sempione in Milan

The via Tommaso Agudio is a side-street situated half-way along the famous Corso Semplione leading to the Castello Sforzesco and north-west facing. Built in the Napoleonic era of the early 1800’s the direct, impressive. tree-lined aspect of the Corso Semplione brings to mind the urban architecture of the Champs-Elysèes in Paris. Along the length of the street are examples of quality, desirable residences in full view of the magnificent Arco della PaceMonument created in 1807 at the behest of both the city and Napoleon himself and which opens onto the vast green area of the Parco Sempione.

In view of Expo 2015 the internationally-renowned Portuguese architect, Alvaro Siza submitted his ambitious project aiming to transform the Corso Sempione into a huge garden by replacing the central road structure with greenery and creating an extraordinary scenario within this important gateway to the city.

The project aims to present an imposing part of Milan through a combination of modern imagery, whether emphasising art, urban grace, whilst incorporating the ambience and the quality of its residential sectors.Álvaro Siza Vieira Corso Sempione Project

Via Tommaso Agudio is on the east side. It’s one-way and is tram-free but remains well-served by public transport. 20 minutes by bus and metro gets you to the Piazza del Duomo and a further 10 to the Stazione Centrale. Motorway access is around 2 km. A further innovation giving added value to this fine real estate development is the current construction of Linea 5 of the Metro which will pass within the immediate vicinity of via Agudio.
