The exhibition reinterprets some of the Milanese projects by Aldo Rossi throughout  40 original works accompanied by study models, writings,  and notes focusing on his work in -and about- the city of Milan, from his training at the Polytechnic in the fifties, his studies for the Scalo Farini presented at the XII Triennale in the early sixties, the Monument to the partisans of Segrate (1965-67) and Monte Amiata Gallaratese (1968-1973), up to the expansion of the airport of Linate and the competition for Bovisa in the nineties.
