Milano 2, a neighbourhood on the outskirts of Milan. Built between 1970 and 1979 as utopic city, it was Berlusconi's first ambitious urban project. An area that could look like an anonymous suburb was once the laboratory for a new lifestyle, which in the decades of "Berlusconism" spread at a national level and radically transformed Italian culture.
