The Porta Nuova neighborhood in Milan was named after an historic monument in the area, the "new gate" built between 1810 and 1813. When compared to the ancient Roman gates that were once the entry points to the city of Milan, the Porta Nuova is considered quite new.
Located to the north of the city center, the Porta Nuova district underwent a revitalization after 2009 and today is used mainly for business. The skyline features several modern buildings and a large public park.
The Porta Nuova district is north of the historic center, with Stazione Garibaldi just to the west of the neighborhood. The Napoleonic gate is just south of the district on Via Monte Santo.
