THE NEW
SOMAINI FOUNDATION

The Somaini Foundation is based in a complex owned by the FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) located at number 31 of Corso di Porta Vigentina. It is a well-preserved example of a “casa di ringhiera”, one of the typical social housing of old Milan, today rather rare. The building, which develops around a cobbled central courtyard and surrounded by galleries, overlooks Corso di Porta Vigentina and the medieval Via Cassolo.
