The itinerary starts from Piazzale Cadorna, where the historic building of the Ferrovie Nord Milano station is. In the year 2000, the square underwent a significant urban restyling based on a project by the architect Gae Aulenti, who furnished it with canopies and with the installation of a sculpture by the artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, reproducing a large needle, thread and knot, the symbols of Milano's industriousness.
The first stop on this itinerary is the Triennale Milano. Keeping the railway station behind you, turn left to reach via Pietro Paleocapa. Here turn left again, taking the right sidewalk of the street, and walk for about 200 meters.
Cross via Jacini and further on via Gadio (pedestrian crossings with a short slope of 3.8%, without acoustic signal for the blind). Continue along Viale Emilio Alemagna for about 300 meters until you reach the Palazzo dell'Arte, home to the Triennale Milano.
This is an international cultural institution where art, design, architecture, fashion and cinema exhibitions, conferences and events are organized. Once the visit to the exhibition spaces is over, a must-see is the installation called "The mysterious baths", created in 1973 by Giorgio De Chirico and located in the gardens at the back of the Palazzo dell'Arte.
Leaving the Triennale, keeping the main entrance behind you, walk along Viale Alemagna on your right and after 50 meters turn right onto Via Luigi Camoens (road with an average gradient between 4.6% and 7.2% in the last stretch). After about thirty meters, on your left, you will find the entrance to the Torre Branca designed by Cesare Chiodi and Gio Ponti and inaugurated in 1933. It is possible to get on top of the tower, where you can admire the whole city; on clear days you can also see the Lombard Prealps.
