Metrobosco is a strong idea for the welfare of Milan’s metropolitan area: 3,000,000 new trees for new woods, parks and hedges in the countryside and along the ring roads.
Metrobosco is a dream, a scenario, a pilot project of the Strategic Plan of Milan’s Province. It consists of a green ring of 30,000 hectares, accounting for approximately 15% of the whole Province. The city needs Metrobosco to get more oxygen, to be protected from pollution, to have a better climate, to enhance its landscapes. Metrobosco will be a new “shadowy threshold, a green border, a natural limit to urban expansion.
A wide green belt around the ring roads of the capital of Milan but also a network of greenways, a green connective system between Milan’s Dorsale Nord and the rivers Ticino and Adda’s large water parks.
