“The park covers an area of ​​approximately 40 acres along the route that, from the Duomo, leads to the Passo del Sempione through the Arco della Pace. Construction started in 1890 and it was designed by Emilio Alemagna to locate the pavilions of the 1906 International Expo and is now Milan’s park par excellence, much frequented by sports enthusiasts and families, especially on weekends. However, it is not only the green lung of the city but also a place that narrates the history of Milan's past. For example, the Ponte delle Sirenette is the bridge named after the four statues that characterize it. Constructed in the Dongo ironworks in 1842, it is believed to be the first metal bridge built in Italy and was positioned on what is now via Visconti di Modrone after the city’s ring of canals was covered. Another interesting story is that of the “acqua marcia”, the fountain which in olden times was considered a panacea for health thanks to its high sulphur content. By climbing the Torre Branca (108.60 m high), commissioned in 1932 by the municipality of Milan, visitors can get an amazing view of the city. The tower was designed by Gio Ponti and assembled in just two and a half months to inaugurate the fifth Triennial (1933). Another attraction located in the park is the Civic Aquarium, the only building left of those specifically constructed for the International Expo in 1906. After the restoration, completed in 2006, the interior space was designed to comprise didactic exhibition and research areas with numerous pools of fresh and marine water containing more than a hundred species of aquatic organisms. Last but not least, the park is also home to a rather special public library: it was awarded the Medaglia d'Oro at the tenth Trienniale in 1954 for its splendid architecture.”

“Located not far from the Duomo, Milan’s Castello Sforzesco – built in the 15th century by Duke Francesco Sforza – was once one of the largest citadels in Europe. Today, it houses various museums and numerous important artworks and relics, but it is also nice to wander through its courtyards and drink in the sense of history. After you are done exploring the castle, walk out the back gate and straight into Parco Sempione, Milan’s “green lung” and one of the most beautiful parks in the city. There are a variety of events planned this year at the castle to honour da Vinci’s contribution to the destination, from frescoes to other beautiful adornments. ”
