Arexpo S.p.A.

Our mission is to transform the area that hosted Expo into
MIND Milano Innovation District: an innovation district of
international relevance that will not be a simple complex of
physical buildings, but a set of relationships, with all its
dynamics, social, economic and territorial connotations.

An innovation ecosystem that looks forward to the future and where a very high scientific and industrial specialization is focused on the life sciences fields.


Nowadays the dimensions of this urban development and the already existing infrastructures, make this area a uniqueness on an international level. The city of tomorrow will be characterized by new ways of moving, of living, of working, of doing sports, eating and being together.


Flexibility in the way we design and build these places so that they can be adapted to the continuous changes in workspaces, residential spaces, spaces to do research and study or services.
