How changed north-east Milano! In a gap of three, four years, this Milano district - called NoLo - has revolutionized its structure and it made its diversity a force. The boundary of this neighborhood, a nightlife meeting point, is the beginning of our journey. Let’s wear comfortable shoes to find the pleasure sport fatigue.
We start from Viale Monza towards Crescenzago. The first stop is Ponte Vecchio, the very ancient bridge that dominates Martesana Canal, a spot not to be missed because it tells a piece of history of Milano Navigli. The bridge, built in 1837 and designed by Carlo Caimi, dominates Martesana water - the canal that connects Milan with the Adda river. From Ponte Vecchio you can see two indentations on Naviglio sides - once, there was the old “darsena”. The closest old building was Canottieri Gorla that in 1900s was protagonist of numerous victories in rowing competitions.
We continue along Via Petrocchi, among nineteenth-century gardens and villas, and then we reach Via Bertelli. From Via Bertelli we go down along Martesana Canal where it is possible to see very beautiful and old houses facing the balaustrade. Peace and silence are interrupted only by the voices and music they feast at the Martesana Farmstead. A little further on, it is possible to come across the Martesana Amphitheater, now known as the Iraqi Martyrs of Freedom Park. Victims of Terrorism - an important social place for the entire community.
