FILI, Europe’s largest urban regeneration project

With an investment of approximately one billion euros, the project aims to create new urban scenarios ahead of of the Milan Cortina 2026 Olympic Games through a series of sustainable redevelopment interventions.

FILI, Europe’s largest urban and extra-urban regeneration project, will soon kick off  a series of interventions in Italy’s northern region of Lombardy focusing on the anthropization of its territory, infrastructures development and sustainability promotion.

The plan, promoted by Fnm, Ferrovienord and Trenord in collaboration with the Lombardy Region administration, will provide for a urban mending process through a number of redevelopment interventions of the railway junctions and a series of avant-garde architectural designs and ecological practices.

Among these, a 72.7km “super cycle path” from Cadorna station to Malpensa airport, a synthetic hanging forest six times the size of the Duomo (72,000 sqm) and the planting of 800.000 trees across a surface equals to the Municipality of Monza’s extension.

The project starts off in preparation for the Milan Cortina 2026 Winter Olympics, proposing new green urban scenarios and an enhanced Milan-Malpensa axis. The stations of Milan Bovisa, Saronno and Busto Arsizio and the areas adjacent to them will also benefit from the investment.

“I especially celebrate the great work done to build the “enabling conditions” to create the spaces and plow the land on which this project – and others, I hope, of equal vision – can develop in our territory,” Attilio Fontana, the president of the Lombardy Region commented on the plan.

The total investment amounts to about one billion euros and will affect 2 million square meters in Lombardy, making it one of the most ambitious projects of urban regeneration in Europe.
