Abstract

Since the beginning of the last century a progressive and esponential process of urbanization and infrastructuring has occured in the territory of Lombardia, especially in the neighboring areas of the conurbation of Milano-city and in the zone of high plain enclosed between Ticino and Adda (la città infinita1, the infinite-city). In this territorial framework of spaces strongly anthropic, mainly residential, –where the open spaces for the public life of citizens result reduced and disqualified, not to mention fragmented – natural, often residual, areas are just at urban bondaries. Right in this area there is regional (and also national) peak of settlement density2. Here, in this compromised landscape, flows the Villoresi Canal, an hydraulic infrastructure that as a thread links different parts of land that are varying from agricultural landscape to urban fringe areas and also to public housing neighbourhoods. To verify the potential of this hydraulic infrastructure didactic sperimentation and researches are carried out by a sinergy between Consorzio di Bonifica Est Ticino Villoresi (managing institution of the Canal) and the School of Civil Architecture of Politecnico di Milano.
