Who said Milano is grey?

Via Lincoln urban rainbow



Don't judge by mere appearances. Behind its grey, bustling streets, Milano hides a number of secret, colorful, unexpected corners that will delight your eyes and soul.

Via Lincoln is probably one of the most unexpected neighborhood in Milano: not far from Piazza Cinque Giornate and Corso XXII Marzo there lies a urban fairy tale village, made of colored small houses and enchanted silent corners.

This area was designed by a cooperative of workers at the end of the 19th century to be a Garden District made of small, affordable houses to host Porta Vittoria railway qualified workers and managers.

Over the years, people of this area started painting their houses in bright, gloomy colors, sometimes in competition among them.   

In springtime, the colors painted merge with the blooming nature nuances, creating an amazing rainbow effect.
