com­ples­sa sto­ria / A ra­ther unu­sual but well-kno­wn ur­ban si­te that was on­ce ho­me to a fa­mous Mi­la­ne­se di­sco­thè­que has been re­de­ve­lo­ped in a way that re­vi­si­ts its com­plex hi­sto­ry

È UN ISO­LA­TO ANO­MA­LO e vi­ta­le quel­lo che si tro­va a Mi­la­no tra via­le Um­bria, via Ce­na e cor­so XXII Mar­zo. Da edi­fi­cio ru­ra­le iso­la­to co­strui­to a fi­ne Ot­to­cen­to su un lot­to agri­co­lo ir­re­go­la­re, ha vi­sto nel pri­mo No­ve­cen­to la rea­liz­za­zio­ne di uno dei ret­ti­fi­li stra­da­li più am­pi del­la cit­tà, via­le Um­bria ap­pun­to, tan­to vi­ci­no da com­por­ta­re ad­di­rit­tu­ra lo smus­so di uno spi­go­lo. Poi nel tem­po gli so­no sor­ti at­tor­no il mer­ca­to or­to­frut­ti­co­lo (che è sta­to qui ac­can­to fi­no agli an­ni Ses­san­ta del No­ve­cen­to), lo sca­lo fer­ro­via­rio di Por­ta Vit­to­ria e il par­co Ma­ri­nai d’Ita­lia. Nel frat­tem­po, al pia­no ter­re­no, l’edi­fi­cio si ar­ric­chi­va di ne­go­zi e la­bo­ra­to­ri, non­ché del­la di­sco­te­ca Pla­stic, ri­ma­sta per trent’an­ni un pun­to di ri­fe­ri­men­to im­pre­scin­di­bi­le del­le not­ti mi­la­ne­si. Ar­ri­via­mo co­sì all’og­gi e al­la re­cen­te tra­sfor­ma­zio­ne di que­sto iso­la­to a cu­ra de­gli ar­chi­tet­ti Pao­lo Go­li­nel­li e Mar­ghe­ri­ta Sa­la: un in­ter­ven­to che con-

THE BLOCK THAT LIES BET­WEEN Via­le Um­bria, Via Ce­na and Cor­so XXII Mar­zo in Mi­lan is as aty­pi­cal as it is full of li­fe. What star­ted out as an iso­la­ted ru­ral buil­ding in the la­te 19th cen­tu­ry was tran­sfor­med in the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry in­to one of the lon­ge­st street fron­ts in the city, Via­le Um­bria, that ca­me to su­ch a sharp point that one of the cor­ners of the si­te had to be cut away. Over the years the sur­roun­ding area was oc­cu­pied by the city’s fruit and ve­ge­ta­ble mar­ket (un­til the 1960s), the Por­ta Vit­to­ria rail­way sta­tion and the Ma­ri­nai d’Ita­lia park. This block ac­qui­red va­rious shops and work­shops on its ground floor and al­so the Pla­stic di­sco­thè­que, whi­ch for thir­ty years was one of the fo­cal poin­ts of Mi­la­ne­se night­li­fe. And now this si­te has seen ano­ther tran­sfor­ma­tion over­seen by ar­chi­tec­ts Pao­lo Go­li­nel­li and Mar­ghe­ri­ta Sa­la. This is a pro­ject that ta­kes the si­te back to its ori­gi­nal use as

fer­ma le fun­zio­ni ori­gi­na­rie mi­ste, re­si­den­zia­le e la­bo­ra­to­rio, ma si con­cen­tra sul­la pri­ma, svi­lup­pa­ta nel lun­go cor­po di fab­bri­ca cen­tra­le, og­get­to di so­prae­le­va­zio­ne con re­cu­pe­ro del sot­to­tet­to. Dal pun­to di vi­sta pla­ni­vo­lu­me­tri­co il pro­get­to rein­ter­pre­ta la na­tu­ra par­ti­co­la­re del lot­to ac­cen­tuan­do il con­tra­sto tra il cor­po edi­li­zio cen­tra­le ret­ti­li­neo e la plu­ra­li­tà di vo­lu­mi com­mer­cia­li si­tua­ti al pia­no ter­re­no, e raf­for­zan­do la re­la­zio­ne con lo sky­li­ne ur­ba­no e l’adia­cen­te par­co Ma­ri­nai d’Ita­lia. Il lin­guag­gio ar­chi­tet­to­ni­co con­tem­po­ra­neo si ser­ve di ma­te­ria­li sem­pli­ci (co­me l’in­to­na­co strol­la­to di fac­cia­ta) che at­tua­liz­za­no i prin­ci­pi dell’edi­li­zia mi­no­re mi­la­ne­se di qua­li­tà. In­te­res­san­ti e crea­ti­vi i det­ta­gli che ca­rat­te­riz­za­no gli in­ter­ni co­mu­ni, dai co­lo­ri del­le pa­re­ti al di­se­gno del­la sca­la, fi­no ai por­ta­let­te­re: un bell’esem­pio di co­me si pos­sa con po­chi ele­men­ti e tan­ta at­ten­zio­ne mi­glio­ra­re con ap­proc­cio re­si­lien­te il pae­sag­gio ur­ba­no. hou­sing and work­shops, wi­th prio­ri­ty gi­ven to the for­mer in the long cen­tral block, whi­ch was rai­sed so that gar­ret spa­ces could al­so be used. In pla­ni­vo­lu­me­tric terms the de­si­gn by Go­li­nel­li and Mar­ghe­ri­ta Sa­la rein­ter­pre­ts the spe­cial na­tu­re of the si­te, ac­cen­tua­ting the con­tra­st bet­ween the cen­tral rec­ti­li­near block and a va­rie­ty of com­mer­cial spa­ces on the ground floor, as well as rein­for­cing the re­la­tion­ship wi­th the ur­ban sky­li­ne and the Ma­ri­nai d’Ita­lia park. This con­tem­po­ra­ry ar­chi­tec­tu­ral idiom uses sim­ple ma­te­rials (li­ke rou­gh-sur­fa­ce pla­ster for the walls) that of­fer an up­da­ted ver­sion of the prin­ci­ples of Mi­lan’s mo­re un­der­sta­ted hi­gh-qua­li­ty buil­dings. The­re are in­te­re­sting and crea­ti­ve de­tails in the com­mu­nal in­te­riors, from the co­lours of the walls to the de­si­gn of the stair­ca­se, and even on the form of the let­ter­bo­xes. This is a good exam­ple of how it is pos­si­ble to im­pro­ve the ur­ban land­sca­pe using ju­st a few ele­men­ts, pain­sta­king ef­fort and a re­si­lient ap­proa­ch.

Il pro­get­to si con­cen­tra sui par­ti­co­la­ri co­strut­ti­vi e su una ric­ca pa­let­te di co­lo­ri. The pro­ject fo­cu­ses on the de­tails of con­struc­tion and on a ri­ch co­lor pa­let­te.
