Sex & the City is an association for social promotion that observes cities from a gender perspective, and this is achieved through specific projects, public meetings and research activity. In this way, it aims to build a framework capable of integrating the gender dimension in the reflection on the city, in order to provide a useful tool to develop policies that can organize spaces aiming at the well-being of all citizens.

The Bicocca District

Guided Tour in the Bicocca District means starting a journey between past and future, among the dark atmosphere generated by the smoke of the ancient factories of the past and the new wide and airy spaces designed by monumental architectures that project us in a feasible Milan.

Born by a urban post-industrial riqualification project designed by the studio of the architect Vittorio Gregotti, nowadays the new Bicocca District embraces buildings of great urbanistic and monumental interest, like the University, the Arcimboldi Theater, Hangar Bicocca and the Pirelli Headquarters. Real symbols of a Milan in continuous transformation, able to resew its urban fabric in innovative and surprising ways.

All the iconic monuments and buildings, those on every postcard of the city, in a single itinerary with our professional guides.

Milano Street Art Tour, Ortica – the district-museum

With this guided walking tour, we will take you on a hunt for art, not the art kept in museums, but the art hidden in the streets of Milan, on its walls, doors and bridges, an art that knows no rules and that in Milan as well is able to astonish more and more.

Follow us on this unmissable tour of street art through the murals in the Ortica district which tell the story of Milan in a completely original way: you will discover the new face of a part of the city which is about to become the first district-museum of Milan, thanks to the urban social project Or.Me, guided by the artistic collective OrticaNoodles.
