Top 20 Bovisa, Milan vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Supposedly named after the oxen that used to roam the pastures of this once rural area, Bovisa has a long history of industry that dates back to the nineteenth century. As the city grew in the 1950s, factories were moved further out and the neighbourhood was left for dead. In recent times, however, it’s undergone an enormous regeneration, most notably with a branch of Politecnico di Milano (the largest and oldest university in the city) now dominating the area. The influx of students and other creatives has changed the fabric of the streets, a change illustrated by the decision of the Triennale museum to open a secondary headquarters here in 2006.
