The Navigli, Milan – Now and Then

A slide show of images of the Navigli….now and then.

Navigli Lombardi – one of 17 partners from 11 EU countries plus Norway and Serbia who are involved in The ‘Waterways Forward’ Interreg IVC project.

Navigli Lombardi recognised the opportunity presented by the Interreg IVC Waterways Forward project and participated in the preparatory development work which took place during 2008 – since then they have been actively involved in the work of Governance Thematic Group.

The Navigli Lombardi team organised a successful project partners’ meeting in Milan in September 2010 and attended a knowledge transfer visit to Valladolid the following January 2011 – where the theme of waterways cultural heritage was the focus of discussions.  In Lille, May 2011 the governance theme was examined further – in particular looking at those organizations that have a strong division of administrative responsibilities and who need the involvement of different stakeholders. In addition, Navigli Lombardi were involved in the Master Classes held in Dublin, September 2011 and the coordination and facilitation of one of three workshops held during the meeting in Budapest January 2012 aimed at preparing the project’s final Regional Action Plan and policy recommendations.

During 2012, the project includes the development and subsequent adoption of the Regional Action Plan for each partner and the proposed recommendations for the consideration of the European Commission.

    Very nice slideshow! The ancient inner circle is an important issue for the city of Milan. I think it should be tackled with the tools of modernity rather than with those of nostalgia only

    Fantastic! I mean the rendering of what the Inner Circle of Navigli milanesi was and what it is nowadays. Unfortunately this is going to be only a dream. There has been a referendum, indeed, but no one said on what foundations. Only a great “bluff”. What a pity. Anyway I still go on insisting on what Milano could be with the restoration of the whole system of Navigli Milanesi: Naviglio Grande, Naviglio Martesana, Darsena di Porta Ticinese. That couldn’t be only a dream. It could be reality if only we could urge the authorities to re-think of Milano within another perspective, without the traffic jam and other things like that. The reprehension of the navigation along the navigli could give us a new chance to live our city in a different way. Please, don’t say it would cost much money. We waste a lot of money for other useless works. That would save our city. Edo Bricchetti (from Milano)
