In 2008 and 2009 Nicola Russi worked for the City of Milan as a consultant for the PGT’s local projects.

The new general master plan for Milan has been designed by a team of architects and urban planners. Our urban design strategy has been primarily applied the development of the city through projects at a local scale. The upshot was a map in which zones are no longer delineated according to administrative borders but rather on the basis of social and cultural identity patterns. These areas have been called Local Identity Nuclei (LIN), a new city unit today in use in all the city planning offices.
