We are proud to announce that mint LIST is the official Press Office of the New Generations‘ initiative “New Farms for EXPO“, a multidisciplinary project running in Milan from June 24th to 30th. An international workshop and three research evenings open to the public will gather architects, professionals and local administrators as well as agronomists, economists and urban scientists to focus on the reactivation of vacant municipal farmhouse, the so-called #cascine, scattered across the territory of Milan.

Activities will be held in two different locations: the one-week workshop will take place in Cascina Corte San Giacomo, while the other events will be hosted in the Milan Chamber of Architects’ headquarters, in Via Solferino 17.
