The Hotel
ADI Hotel Poliziano Fiera
Via Angelo Poliziano, 11
20154 Milan

Today
Located just 750 metres from the Fiera Milano City exhibition site and the Milan Convention Centre (MiCo), Europe’s largest conference centre, designed by the architect Mario Bellini. A short distance from Arco della Pace, Parco Sempione, the Castello Sforzesco, and Santa Maria delle Grazie, which houses one of Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous paintings: The Last Supper.
Not far from Via Sarpi and Milan’s China Town, and close to the best entertainment venues in Milan.
The main tourist attractions are within easy reach on foot or by public transport.

...and tomorrow
just 300 metres from one of the most interesting places in Milan: the new City Life district, with the Three Towers designed by Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind, the New Public Park and the Vigorelli velodrome, which, when renovated, will become the venue for all sporting events in Milan.

Metro line 5, which is under construction, will stop opposite the hotel, in Piazza Gerusalemme.
CityLife and the public Park
The cranes tower high in the sky, while around them rise the skyscrapers designed by the international stars of architecture that have redesigned this area: Daniel Libeskind, Zaha Hadid and Arata Isokazi. Their signature will be on the 3 towers defining the new city skyline, nicknamed the "Straight", the "Bent" and the "Crooked", calling to mind the director Sergio Leone. But CityLife is also the largest pedestrian area in Milan and one of the largest in Europe. It is filled with greenery and is meant to be visited on foot or by bicycle, without a car. On the ground, in addition to the pedestrian routes, there is a new cycle path connecting Monte Stella with the city centre, one of the Green Rays that are redefining city travel on two wheels.

The public park is at the heart of the CityLife project: an extensive green area, with cycle paths and walkways, direct links to the surrounding areas, and 2,000 new trees selected to ensure the continuity of local varieties and biodiversity.
It covers an area of about 170,000 m2, which is equivalent to 30 football pitches. It is the third largest park in the centre of Milan, after Parco Sempione and the Public Gardens, and completes the chain of parks in the north-west section of the city, creating an efficient ecological network.
The design contract was awarded to the project presented by the Gustafson Porter studio (United Kingdom), in association with Melk, One Works and Ove Arup, entitled A park between the mountains and the plain. The Park provides the area around the Three Towers with a microcosm that reproduces the characteristics of the landscape of Milan and its surroundings. The piazza, the viewpoint, the butterfly garden and the sculpture garden at its centre are connected by paths, gentle ramps and the sculptured shapes of the land. Terraces with restaurants, coffee bars and covered gardens provide a view of the park, while a pedestrian walkway passes overhead, connecting the three towers with the Fiera Congress Centre and the ‘Green Ray’. To the north, the pre-alpine garden, the amphitheatre, the events area and the pine and oak woods create a large tree-lined space, providing the opportunity for staging events, festivals, concerts, temporary gardens, exhibitions and art installations. To the south, the beech forest, the fountain square, the garden of the plains, the maple plantations and the market square create spaces conducive to social interaction, strolling and contemplation. Each element contributes to the realisation of this new 21st century eco-sustainable park, placing CityLife at the heart of the city and its surroundings.
Fiera Milano City and MiCo
In addition to the new exhibition complex in the heart of the metropolis, which has been given the name Fieramilano, the pavilions at Fieramilanocity, remain constantly active, providing 43,000 m2 of exhibition space for events that require relatively limited spaces or, due to their product characteristics, favour a location within the city.
 
The pavilions are next to the MiCo - Milano Congressi, conference centre, managed by Fiera Milano Congressi. Milano Congressi, designed in 2002 by the architect Pierluigi Nicolin, and doubled in capacity in 2005, is now the largest conference centre in the Old Continent. It caters for up to 18,000 people, with an auditorium (asteroid) that seats 1,500, an assembly hall with seating for 4,400 and 73 modular rooms accommodating up to 20,000 people, in addition to 54,000 m2 of exhibition space.
 
Great attention has been dedicated to the originality and impact of the architecture, as can seen in the bright 15,000 m² roof, known as the “comet”, which will cover and unite the various sections of the building and be illuminated by 400 solar panels.
Palazzo delle Scintille
The Palazzo delle Scintille (Palace of Sparks) will house educational activities to encourage curiosity, learning and creativity through play and direct experience. Due to its size and characteristics, it will be the largest cultural centre for children and young people below 18 years of age in Europe.

The building originates from the experience of the Muba Foundation and from comparisons made with the best informal education facilities in Italy and abroad.
Shopping and Services
There are numerous old-style Milanese shops In the vicinity of the hotel and the Via Fauchè market ois held every Tuesday and Saturday, with many goods available at reasonable prices.
 
In the new CityLife area, around 100 units are being created in a very pleasant setting, including restaurants, bars, commercial premises for quality shopping, banks and other services for individuals and companies, arranged along transit ways and squares on two levels.
 
The trip can be made on foot, by bicycle or on the new MM5 line, which arrives there directly from Piazza Gerusalemme station, opposite the Hotel Poliziano Fiera.
Chinatown in Milan
There has been a Chinese area for several decades between via Canonica, Procaccini, Ceresio, Montello and C.M. Maggi. This is the famous Chinatown of the Paolo Sarpi zone, named after its main street, with a wealth of clothing and craftwork stores, restaurants and takeaways managed by Chinese. The district is a true example of multiculturalism, and Chinese residents have lived here since 1920.
 
Craft objects, clothing, teas and much more can be found at very reasonable prices in the area’s many Made-in-China stores. A stroll through these streets, filled with signs written in characters and the fragrance of spices wafting from restaurants, is a real experience of a piece of modern China in Milan. Chinese New Year is a very colourful and enjoyable festival in which Italian flags can also be seen alongside Chinese ones.
Arco della Pace and Castello Sforzesco
After the demolition of the 16th- and 17th-century fortifications in 1801, the decision was taken, during a session of Milan’s Municipal Council on 8 February 1806, to erect a Victory Arch based on the famous design by Marchese Luigi Cagnola, with the intention of creating a new entrance to the city along Sempione Street.
 
The arch, with the addition of two toll houses for customs and police services, was inaugurated on 10 September 1838 by Ferdinando I. It is a unique example, in Milan, of a monumental gate commissioned and designed for the purpose of providing a triumphal entrance for celebrities and police and military authorities.
 
The Arch of Peace provides access to other monuments, including Castello Sforzesco, the Arena Civica, the Palace of Art and the Park Tower.
San Siro Stadium
It is usually referred to as "San Siro" due to the district in Milan in which it was built, which in turn took its name from a small church dedicated to St. Cyrus, which is no longer in existence.
 
The construction started in December 1925 under the patronage of the President of Milan, Piero Pirelli; the stadium was officially inaugurated on 19 September 1926, with a match between Inter and Milan (6-3). In 1980 the stadium was named after Giuseppe Meazza (1910-1979), the legendary footballer who played for both Inter and Milan and was a world champion with the Italian national team in 1934 and 1938.
 
For the occasion of the 1990 World Cup, staged in Italy, the stadium was completely renovated, with the construction of the third tier and the roof. In 2009 it was ranked in second place in the Times list of the world's most beautiful stadiums. Since the 1970s, the stadium has hosted numerous concerts by internationally famous artists, and has been the scene over the years of performances by some of the greatest groups and singers in the history of rock and pop.
Forgotten Monuments and Surroundings
Among buildings of artistic importance, we wish to mention Villa Simonetta (home of the Civic School of Music), the Monumental Cemetery, the Garegnano Charterhouse di Garegnano, the Villa Schleiber e the Villa Caimi, and the 14th-century Torchiera farmstead.
 
Entrances and courtyards of particular beauty can also be seen in private residences, while the numerous houses with open balconies in the Sempione area are no less worthy of attention, as a reminder of the city's industrial development during the latter years of the 19th century. The farmsteads on the outskirts of Milan still preserve some of the agricultural traditions typical of the families who lived in the villages outside the city.
