Milan-type horrors

Piero Ricca - Milano Citylife EN.jpg
Google Video

900,000 cubic metres of cement. Three skyscrapers up to 23 storeys and 210 metres high, 9,500 car park places. An increased flow of cars estimated to be on a par with a middling-sized town: 20 to 25 thousand cars in an area that is already jammed.
This is the future of a Milan neighbourhood: The Fiera zone. With the Citylife project. The city councillors have not listened to the voices of the thousands of inhabitants of the area.
And when they submitted 3,000 authenticated signatures to explain their reasoning they were not even received by the Cabinet member for the development of the territory Carlo Masseroli (email).
The disaster of the Fiera zone is another step in the removal of natural human rights. In Milan, after the air, now they are taking away even the light of the sun.

Fiera Zone Milan Ė Before and after

The homes of the Fiera zone will be blacked out by the sky scrapers. So will the tress and the few areas of green. A future of excrement PM10 in the dark.
According to the architect Giuseppe Boatti, interviewed with professor Giorgio Ragazzi by Piero Ricca, the City Council will lose 163 million Euro from this operation. And this is why they have denounced it to the Finance Court for damages to the national heritage. But it is the citizens who will lose 163 million Euro. Their Euro. Not Masseroli or Morattiwifeoftheoily.
Watch the film clip, read the approach to TAR and the reasons for No to the umpteenth ravaging that would damage our lives. We only have one life. Letís not have them take it away from us.

You can borrow my words anytime.

The citizens of Milano voted Moratti and now they can enjoy her by partying with PM10.

One thing that can be done at this point would be to insitute a low-emission mandatory transportation system for people and freight.

And the whole Moratti Family can go to Hell and stay there forever and ever.They are the real scum of the Earth.

What are they teaching architects in university? These aborted, gravity defying, dehumanizing pieces of (Giovanni can I borrow your favorite word here?).... are nothing but a reflection of the chaos we are all living in. This crap in appearing all over the world, signed by the most famous architects and supported by art critics everywhere! We have gone insane in more than one way.....
