Milan – A multicultural city
Milan is a big Italian city, in which different ethnic groups, cultures and races coexist together with the “Milanesi”. This situation often results in the picturesque customization of some neighborhoods and areas of the city.
These illustrations are made by a mix of digital drawings and photographs, mixing imagination and reality on the grounds of a common understanding between the city and its residents.
In the last years of the twentieth century, globalization has increased ethnic and cultural plurality of many cities, through migration processes that lead to the interpenetration of different populations in the major European metropolitan areas. This illustrated project shows how the city of Milan has adjusted to the change.
The illustrations have been used to develop a multiethnic map of Milan for Ethnicity, a multimedia guide with the purpose of encouraging the exploration of multiethnic cities all across Europe.
