If Milan has become the most important city concerning economy in Italy and one of the most rich in Europe it’s because of Renaissance the Genius of Leonardo da Vinci who connected the center of the the city with the two most important rivers around it (Adda and Ticino) with the artificial channel system of the Navigli.

Through the new river system Milan was linked with the North of Europe (Naviglio Martesana / Adda River / Como Lake / Alps / Switzerland), with the East (Naviglio Martesana / Adda and Brembo Rivers / Bergamo and Venice) , with the West (Naviglio Grande / Ticino River / Maggiore Lake / Piedmont / Alps / France) and with the South of the World (Naviglio Pavese / Ticino River / Pavia / Po River / Mediterranean Sea).

When this system the high quality marble from Candoglia (on the Maggiore Lake) arrived in the center of the Milan, he used it for building his fantastic old gothic style cathedral named “il Duomo”. All these connections improved the exchanging of ideas, peoples interaction, trade and richness. Now Milan is a Metropolitan City with 3.200.000 inhabitants including the hinterland.

The Navigli channel system is not used to resolve economical issues, but it has become the center for an alternative Milan. Water always means life and this creates an attraction towards the Navigli.
