The urban redevelopment projects, in different areas of Milan, are continuing with two interventions: one being completed in Piazza Ovidio, and the other in the start-up phase in Piazza Artigianato, both in the Forlanini district, east of the city.
The end of the works is expected immediately after Easter. At the center of the intervention was a new area for dogs, which was accompanied by works for a new draining pavement and the sowing of the new lawn.
Some plants will also be planted in the coming days.
In the coming months, on the opposite side, a play area will be created which is part of the Gioco al centro – Playgrounds for all project, launched in 2018 by the Municipality together with the Fondazione di Comunità Milano and which aims to create new inclusive play areas. in the public parks of the nine city halls.
The planned intervention will make the central space, now disordered and little used, dialogue with the sidewalks and commercial activities, thus creating a new public space.
The project therefore provides for the extension of the central parterre, the introduction of the speed limit at 30 km / h and a new pedestrian crossing. There will be the installation of new benches, under the existing trees, and some racks. In the rearranged central part a game of goose will be designed for the enjoyment of the little ones.
For this project, the works will be completed in late summer.
“These interventions are also the result of a listening process with citizens, committees and traders – commented the Councilor for Urban Planning and Green Pierfrancesco Maran -, with the aim of intercepting their needs. Between Piazza Artigianato and Piazza Ovidio we will have, a few hundred meters away, new spaces for everyone: children, the elderly, citizens and four-legged friends ”.
