Parco Romana
An innovative dialogue between the city of Milan and its citizens, Alps and green spaces

A large Central Park, urban continuity, pedestrian and cycle connections, an eco-zone, public squares and the Suspended Forest: these are the defining elements of the Parco Romana Masterplan, which will see nature and the city united in an innovative and sustainable network of public spaces.

Parco Romana aims to reconnect the urban fabric divided by the industrial activity of the Railway Yard for over a century, linking the central nucleus of Milan to the metropolitan hinterland.

Thanks to a distribution of services, public squares and natural areas, green and retail spaces, Parco Romana will offer a fluid and vital space characterised by residential zones (in the west) and commercial (in the east).

Parco Romana will also play host to the Olympic Village for Milano-Cortina 2026, which will then be converted into student housing after the conclusion of the Games.

The project figures highlight a new sustainable and digital reality.

It takes a team of visionary architects to bring this unique project to life.

GROUND UP is the name chosen by the innovative urban planning group led by Outcomist, Diller Scofido + Renfro, PLP Architecture and Carlo Ratti Associates and ARUP – who have worked together to conceive the vision of the Parco Romana Masterplan. This is a project where the true protagonists are the archistars themselves, along with the symbolic locations they have designed.
