A forest to feel well among the skyscrapers
The new forest at the skyscrapers’ foot around Piazza Gae Aulenti is the third big park in Milan city centre.
Promoting biodiversity is one of the values that have inspired La Raia over the years, and the leading commitment in our daily job. In the farm, Demeter certified since 2007, natural plants, fruit trees, vines nurtured by man’s work and many animal species coexist in a perfect harmony: a huge mosaic with vineyards, cultivated fields, pastures, woods, hedges, gardens and buildings.
Renato Cottalasso, renowned ornithologist, dedicated to this unique ecosystem his book “Alla scoperta della biodiversità” (Discovering biodiversity), published by Fondazione La Raia. The book examines the delicate interaction between animal and vegetable lives, the unimaginable dynamics of fight and survival, and contains many artistic pictures of the creatures that inhabit La Raia.
“This book is dedicated to those who love nature in all the forms which are simple, complex and mysterious too. It describes the biodiversity, the real value of La Raia and how it can be pursued in our garden, in our cities and in our country."
