Central Milan has a regeneration plan to transform the city within five years. The planned development will include "municipal buildings as architectural wonders, a state-of-the-art green field park and, at its heart, the Città della Moda e del design - Fashion City."
In addition, there will be "both a stylish area of shops, hotel and residential apartments and a fashion center, where there will be a museum to archive the designers who have contributed since the 1950s to the Made in Italy revolution; and a university where fashion as a sociological phenomenon will be included in the curriculum."
