Anyone stepping foot in Milan today arrives in a modern and dynamic city, to all effects a European metropolis: with new skyscrapers, supermarkets open 24 hours a day. Over the last ten years, Milan has successfully reinvented itself, adapting to the demands, challenges currently asked of it to become an international point of reference. This inspiring transformation is narrated in 21 short videos, each themed according to the 21 letters of the Italian alphabet, each on different subjects so as to focus on the multifaceted Milan of today.
A journey taking us through the sites and scenes animating Milan to illustrate what the city is all about today following the major work carried out in the wake of Expo 2015. The project tells about this Milanese Renaissance, from the tourist boom to the rainbow parades of Gay Pride, without however forgetting the city’s security and immigration issues.
Each video, lasting 3 minutes at the most, allows those directly affected by the subjects raised to voice their views via interviews with the authorities, experts and the people of Milan themselves. A number of videos also offer additional infographics and data on topics such as the labour market and civil partnerships.
The project was conceived and produced by Ilaria Mauri and Francesca Oliva.
