Historical building in Art Nouveau style built in 1923 on a design by the architect Paolo Vietti Violi, located in the new CityLife district of Milan and overlooking Piazza IV Febbraio. The building,
designed to host indoor sports events, has over the years been home to shows, cultural, art and fashion events thanks to its central location and large internal area.
The building, surmounted by an iron dome surrounded by a sequence of columns, consists of a basement of about 4,500 sq m, a ground floor of about 8,500 sq m, two balconies that once served as grandstands, one on the first floor of about 4,500 sq m and another on the second floor of about 2,500 sq m. The areas immediately facing the entrances, stairs and access ramps along the fronts of the building also belong to the building itself.
The Palace is intended, as public equipment / public interest, to accommodate facilities that provide services and / or events of general interest, but to also host commercial activities (sale of goods and services) that are compatible with the primary function, up to a maximum of 2,500 sq m of sales area.
The property is located north-west of the historic centre of Milan in the brand-new business and shopping district of Milan known as the Citylife district. This distract, along with the towers designed by Isozaki, Hadid and Libeskind, internationally-renowned architects, has changed the skyline of the city.
It is located in a residential context characterised by bicycle and pedestrian paths, fountains, lawns and parks, elegant late-19th century buildings and art nouveau buildings, and modern skyscrapers at the foot of which the shopping district is situated.
Nearby is Via Marghera, one of the city’s most exclusive neighbourhoods with historic bars, restaurants and the shops of Corso Vercelli. The area is also well-served by public transport. Nearby, the metro station M1 Amendola Fiera Milano & Lotto is just a few stops away from the Duomo and the Castello Sforzesco, as well as Milan’s most famous squares and streets for shopping and entertainment, Corso Garibaldi, Corso Sempione, Corso Como and Piazza Gae Aulenti.
