More info

In 1910 the Portello area was the cradle of A.L.F.A (Anonymous Lombard Factory of Automobiles).

In 1915 A.L.F.A became Alfa Romeo and in 1986 it moved to Arese, in the hinterland, and the factory at Portello closed.

In 2001 restoration works in the area began: skyscrapers started popping up together with Vittoria park, a small hill whose top is reachable climbing a spiral path. Both the path and the top are worth a picture as from above you can even spot a small underlying lake, in addition to Milan skyline.

Can you discover what has been kept after this area’s restoration and what instead has been added?
