#4. Gardens Milan: the secret of Mozart street with pink flamingos
Via Cappuccini 7
Maybe is the hidden garden most known of Milan, and E’ forse il giardino nascosto più conosciuto di Milano, ed the most extraordinary. To want is Romeo Invernizzi, pragmatic heir of the family dairy in that Pasturo, Lecco, that in XIX century opens two dairy factories, one of which at the gates of Melzo. Rome Invernizzi is the father of cheese Mio, Susanna Tutta Panna, the cow Carolina, of which he was patron as an entrepreneur and as an advertising. “Romeo and his wife Enrica, who moved into the villa in Corso Venezia, in Milan,often they invited the friends Rizzoli and Falck for movie screenings at home. That house that overlooks Via dei Cappuccini and, today, is inhabited by a family of flamingos. Romeo, at villa of Corso Venezia, alla villa di Corso Venezia, preferred the estate of Trenzanesio, 400 hectares of land 12 kilometers from Milan. Enrica, instead, he loved the city, his source of inspiration. To persuade Romeo to move to Milan was not the insistence of his wife, but the trip from South America of twelve pink flamingos. Also today, the flamingos wander beyond the gates of Villa Invernizzi […]. It is since 1970 that live in Corso Venezia: they are perfectly adapted and does not seem willing to fly away”.
#5. Gardens Milan: the next will be the biggest of all
It will be in via San Faustino, for crops and educational activities. Another nice idea Retake Milano
It could be the biggest ever: “nearly 18,000 square meters – now covered with weeds – to be devoted to teaching activities, gardening, paths of memory. The area, which was sold on loan for use by the university State to the Municipality of Milan, in via San Faustino, including Lambrate and Ortica”, reports Repubblica.it.
And the Orbitale Garden?
It is the project’s largest green belt in the world. The largest urban park of a city, with about 72 kilometers to the conference. In a nutshell: try to imagine all the parks of the suburbs of Milan, such as the Agricultural Park, North Park, Parco Lambro, Forlanini, Trenno and other -connected to each other. Together, they would form a unified space that size would represent the world’s largest urban park.
The Orbitale Garden, a project of Giacomo Biraghi, has already won several awards, including the first edition of Expop event organized by nursery. Now we have to make it happen.
