Based on an idea and with the participation of Renzo Piano.


Welcome to the Via Bonardi construction site, the project Politecnico di Milano is implementing as a present to the city and to its citizens. After the redevelopment of Piazza Leonardo, the works at the Bonardi Campus, based on an idea and with the participation of Alumnus and architect Renzo Piano, intend putting forward the idea of a greener city, people-oriented, open and international, capable of providing areas for creative energies in order to enhance citizens' work, study and life.


The new Campus will host an international excellence hub for architectural research and innovation. A new Modelling Laboratory of approximately 750 square metres, combined with study spaces and new equipped classrooms, will be side by side with the historical Trifoglio and Nave buildings designed by the Milan master Gio Ponti, likewise redeveloped and enhanced.


Four new study rooms, a new Assembly Hall with 900 seats and new buildings integrated into the environment thanks to grass carpets and gardens open to all will complete the complex. The heart of the new Campus will be a garden for all the citizens, with a hundred new trees that will populate a green corridor to connect Piazza Leonardo, the Giulio Romano park and the historical gardens of the Leonardo Campus.


The new buildings will house an architectural modeling laboratory, classrooms for teaching and supplementary study rooms, for 4.200 square metres altogether. The old modelling laboratory, commonly known as “Submarine”, will be removed to enable the birth of a new open space to be lived as a meeting place. A wood of as many as 8.000 square metres will directly link the Architecture courtyard with the “Trifoglio” (Clover) and “Nave” (Ship) buildings, as part of a continuum of open and closed spaces.


The project, in the wake of the positive urban, economic and social transformation Milan is currently undergoing, reflects the Politecnico's vision of a university strongly linked to the territory, in perfect symbiosis with the city it fits into. Many are the positive examples of proactive cooperation between the University and the city of Milan.

The fundraising campaign focuses a lot on the element of sharing from the bottom up: it allows all the persons who believe in the project to donate freely and feel part of the project as a whole.
You can link your name with classrooms, places and spaces of the new Campus. Identifying a classroom with the name of a person or family that believed in the project attests the participation spirit characterising this initiative. In addition to a free donation, therefore, you can make a dedicated donation for the construction of the Assembly Hall or the four study classrooms, to plant one of the hundred trees, or to lay a brick.


You can engrave your name on a brick that is going to form part of one of the new buildings. The dedicated brick represents the constructive and supportive spirit characterising those who believe in this project.


The parterre space, opposite Building C, will become a large pedestrian area paved and equipped with seating areas and will witness the birth of 100 new trees. The new campus will thus turn into a green space at the heart of the city, equally livable by both the Politecnico students and the neighbourhood residents. Your name will be linked to the donated tree, so that you can communicate your support to the project to all and sundry.


The new Building B, made up of 5 floors, 1 of which underground, will rise next to the “Trifoglio” Building. The 4 upper floors will host four bright classrooms with a total capacity of approximately 520 seats.


The historical “Trifoglio” building of Gio Ponti will be entirely redeveloped, creating new classrooms for study and teaching. The building will host a new Assembly Hall for the Leonardo Campus. More specifically, the project envisages an innovative space born out of two first floor classrooms opening up towards the vast central space, thereby creating a huge conference hall that will successfully host more than 800 persons for big events or inaugurations.
