The old Bovisa gasometer complex is located in area at the north-west region of Milan, Italy. From the three original gasometers that make part of the gas plant, two still remain (those that have been built in 1906 and 1930), but since 1969 gas production has been transfered to a less complex and cleaner plant; nowadays the area is abandoned, with only minimal maintenance, but there are plans to reuse it.
Italy’s and perhaps the world’s capital of fashion and design, Milano is home to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, which is possibly the world’s oldest shopping mall. The city is currently undergoing an architectural renaissance, which will culminate in a new skyline for the Expo 2015, which will be hosted in Milano. Visitors can take advantage of an extensive public transportation system, which includes metro, buses, trolleys and trams.
