Oblique Bridge of Viale Monza.
The bridge, then changed radically by subsequent interventions, is the one that was originally designed by Carlo Caimi and built in 1837. The bridge was linked to the story of Count Resta and his attempt to oppose the dismemberment of part of the old burg of Gorla. Forced to move elsewhere, he abandoned everything and let his properties dissolve under the pressure of the new Austrian Military Street (Viale Monza).
The street, designed by the engineer Donegani in 1825, met the city’s new needs of expansion to the north. The street, which was in fact a broad avenue, embellished for the occasion by four rows of plane trees, had a central lane reserved for the movement of carriages and two internal side avenues reserved for pedestrians.
In the chalet (no longer existing) of the “Boschetto” Restaurant, the Milanese converged in cheerful brigades to dance to the sound of a small band composed of real professionals. The residents often stopped with their elbows resting on the parapet of the canal to listen to the music being played by the band.
Crespi Morbio Fundation.
The district was reserved for large families: the houses had large communal areas and were equipped with anti-aircraft shelters. The complex is clearly distinguishable by a large lateral relief (a mother with two children).
