The best in Italy, if he plays it in Europe. Where we are: ex Fiera di Milano. What are we talking about: 173,000 square meters of greenery, 2,500 trees, large oaks, maples and elms, but also play areas, ecological kindergarten and fitness areas, a lung of biodiversity and services. Citylife park will be the Italian candidate for the Green Cities Awards, the international recognition assigned by the European Nurserystock Association, the association that brings together all the realities dedicated to large-scale nurseries, with the patronage of the EU Parliament. The award, in its second edition, crowns the park that best interprets urban green, reconciling the needs dictated by the challenges of climate and social integration, with the processes of urban regeneration and urbanization.
The European competition
Citylife Park competes with 12 other large areas green in Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Hungary and Sweden. The thirteen projects will be evaluated by an international jury of professionals and can already be viewed on thegreencities.eu website. The prize will be awarded on December 8th. The aim is to stimulate the use of greenery in the public space by providing innovative ideas, information based on scientific research and technical skills.
