Inside msn, Microsoft’s press review, an article by Marianna Barracane titled Isola Milano, the rebirth of a neighborhood considers the urban regeneration project of the Milanese neighborhood, with its main landmarks, including Boeri Studio’s Bosco Verticale.
Milan’s Isola district is a piece of the Lombard capital that, over the years, has changed its appearance through a metamorphosis that has led it to become one of the city’s best-known fragments.
