Gorgonzola

Gorgonzola

Gorgonzola is just 18 kilometres west of Milan's city centre. It is famous for its cheese, as you can see below. A while ago, Gorgonzola was a quiet and pretty little town. Now it is just about part of Milan and the place is crowded and noisy.

Milan's problems

Many people believe that the problems of Milan and Gorgonzola are that the city has grown too quickly. There doesn't seem to have been enough time to plan carefully and it has lost much of what was good and attractive about the city. A lot of the open space and parkland has disappeared in the last few years. This has mostly been replaced by huge blocks of flats, making the city look ugly. There is more and more unemployment in Milan and many children are worried about getting a job after they leave school.
