This huge building was completed in just 194 days and inaugurated in 1934, in the Porta Venezia district. It was the first indoor public swimming pool in Milano and in Italy.
At the time, it was considered the most advanced swimming pool in Europe and the most suitable for hosting swimming competitions, with huge terraces accommodating a large audience.
It is provided with two beautiful 5m and 10m trampolines.
For the time, la Cozzi had very innovative technical features: the great spans that allow for a large space without interruptions, the windowed roofs and their transparent inserts, which let light filter from above.
It was also one of the first swimming pools where heating, ventilation and water purification were meticulously taken care of.
The architectural rigour of the building, in keeping with the historical period of its construction, is softened by details and mosaics that develop the theme of water. These traits contrast with the structure’s monumentality, and open it up to civilian and daily use.
