Cantiere del Nuovo is a Milan Provincial Authorities project of excellence. It promotes quality training and access to the job market. It helps to develop businesses and innovation. It promotes new professions. It encourages institutions, universities, research institutes and businesses to share ideas and work together. It uses art and culture to communicate the value of innovation and research to citizens. Its name describes the spirit of the project: a permanent building site where citizens and businesses can find resources and expert assistance. Where different competences cooperate to build innovation.
The Cantiere del Nuovo is an open space organised for learning and doing. There is nothing similar in the rest of Italy.
