Milan: the birth of Modernity40 min

From 1920's to 1960's Milan was an extraordinary laboratory of architectural modernity. At least two generations of young architects created an updated and original housing language, due to an unmatched professionality, perhaps one of the most refined of that period. The tour will offer an overview of the most iconic buildings of that architectural season, providing an uncommon point of view for understanding this city.
