The only district that combines home and work, well-being and health, investment and innovation.
There is a strong synergy between UpTown Milan and Mind, the new Italian Silicon Valley. Directly connected with UpTown, MIND is going to see every day, thousands of professionals, students, researchers and entrepreneurs meet, thanks to the presence of the best Italian experts in scientific and food research as well as in technology and innovation.
The area will also host the new Galeazzi Hospital health centre - to be ready in 2023 - as well as the Scientific Campus of the University of Milan - that will open its doors in 2004.
An extraordinary example of Italian innovation.
As a result of our remarkable and singular experience, today a new urban centre is being built, offering a modern and innovative way of living. In this district, the citizens of the future will have at their disposal everything they need; they will be able to avoid driving, but still be connected to the most important metropolitan and international public transport networks; and they will be able to balance their personal wellbeing with a healthy, serene and sustainable lifestyle designed for the whole family.
These are the reasons why UpTown Milano became the first national project registered in 2019 to obtain a GBC Quartieri® certificate, reaching the first of the four steps to achieve this goal.
From Smart City to Wellbeing City
Health, food research, training and new technologies combined with the quality of life, offered by UpTown smart district, will make this urban centre one of the most advanced areas in Europe.

UpTown MIND's drive towards the future stems from its focus on education. Three nursery schools, one of which is bilingual (Italian and English), are present in the District together with a large School Complex that will be one of the largest state schools ever built in the City of Milan. The Complex will welcome 920 students, divided into four different pavilions: the Nursery School, the Primary School, the Gymnasium - approved for competitive activities - the Secondary School, classrooms and outdoor sports equipment, along with a didactic fruit and vegetable garden. A bilingual mini-nursery school opened in 2019, and a nursery school for fifty children will open in 2021, and in the MIND area, in 2023, the Scientific Campus of the University of Milan will open to over 18,000 students.

Putting people first means listening to the community that lives and works in the neighbourhood, in order to meet their relationship needs and strengthen their sense of belonging and identity. This is why the Cascina has become the heart of the District's ecosystem of services. It houses the Health Centre, a Tax Assistance Centre (CAF), a zero- waste food shop, a pizzeria, a brewery, an ice cream shop and a rotisserie.
The seventeenth-century Cascina Merlata is also the gateway to the neighbourhood and the entire park and residential area. Restored on the occasion of Expo 2015 and fully operational since then, thanks to its many local entertainment events, it already attracts a large audience of visitors throughout the year, from all over the Region.
EuroMilano has guaranteed a successful and innovative management of this space through an alliance with the area's real estate promoters, united by an agreement called "Cascina Merlata Partnership".
