The Municipio 2 - Comune di Milano (now on M2) is an area of 12.58 km² in the north-east of the city of Milan. Population: 155.000. From an architectural point of view, there are several urban buildings of importance, such as: The Central Station; the Figini houses; the Villa Mirabello; Finzi with the Temple of the Night; the "mushrooms" in via Lepanto and others.
The Municipio 2 is crossed by the railway lines; the subway Turin-Venice; the “via Greco” routes from the Garibaldi station; and the Naviglio Martesana, that was object of studies by Leonardo da Vinci because of its interesting hydraulic aspects. Consequently, the Municipio 2 shows a marked subdivision into characteristic and heterogeneous neighbourhoods. Of relevance is the presence of parks including Carbonari, Farina, Martesana Park, Villa Finzi Park, ex Trotter Park, Cassina de 'Pomm Garden, Adriano. In addition to the cultural proposals offered by the Municipio 2 area, the Central Station is of interest as a major hub for business tourism.
