In an area of Milan, which is known for having an “intense process of urbanization just from the first half of the twentieth century, we find the homes that Ponti implements for the average middle class citizen.” With a deeply renewed concept of residential buildings, it gave rise to several "typical houses", new housing systems that are nevertheless in harmony with the Italian architectural tradition. The route covers the area where Gio Ponti has chosen to reside and have his study, from the end of the fifties, and where he built the parish church of San Francesco al Fopponino. It includes analysis and observation of projects from the thirties to the sixties.
