The “Concorso Farini” is part of the Program Agreement signed in 2017 by the Municipality of Milan, the Lombardy Region, FS Italiane (with Rete Ferroviaria Italiana and FS Sistemi Urbani) and Savills Investment Management (today COIMA) for the redevelopment of the seven disused Milanese railway stations (Farini, Porta Romana, Porta Genova, Greco-Breda, Lambrate, Rogoredo and San Cristoforo), for a total surface of 1,250,000 square meters, of which only 200,000 will be destined for railway function.
