Who we are
Comitato Urban Barriera di Milano
Funded by the City of Turin,
the Piedmont Region and the European Union, Urban is a complex system of more
than 30 specific projects that aims to trigger a process of regeneration of the Barriera
di Milano area in terms of physical, economic, social and cultural development.
From the physical-environmental point of view, the main interventions include
the redevelopment of former industrial areas for the creation of public spaces and
green areas, urban quality interventions, and strengthening the urban green system.
On the economic-employment level, the projects operate in support of business,
vocational training, and integration into the labour market. At the same time,
action is taken to improve social cohesion, strengthen cultural activities and active
participation of local residents.
Urban help desk is a space open to everyone, in order to make known all the ongoing project, receive informations and services, point out problems and critical situations as well as suggest new solutions and ideas.
The Fondazione Contrada Torino Onlus is a no-profit organisation which main founder are the City of Turin, the Compagnia di San Paolo and the University of Turin. Its principal goals are stimulating, support and promote actions of urban regeneration, as well as social and culture regeneration, within the city.
