Italy is home to plenty of fantastic ancient buildings, both standing and in ruins. So it’s no surprise that a renovated residence in Milan once housed something else entirely. Owner Christoph Jenny’s 11,840-square-foot loft was first a printing factory, built in the 1920s. Located in the Città Studi district, the apartment still keeps a slight touch of its industrial past.
Today, Milan is undergoing a process of urban renovation that is unique in Italy. This growth is dictated by the will to assert itself as a contemporary city, and the deadline of the 2015 Exposition. In 2015, Milan will host a universal exposition, also known as the World’s Fair (www.expo2015.org). The event will host more than 130 participants and focus on the theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. Click here to read more.
