The Bovisa neighborhood is located in the north-west area of Milan, just outside the ring road. Originally an industrial zone, it underwent a transformation in 1989 with the opening of one of the main headquarters of the Polytechnic University of Milan (Politecnico di Milano), which over the years has become one of the most important university centers from the city.
The Bovisa campus is divided, like the city, by the train tracks. In the north are located the faculties of Design and Architecture, while in the south are the faculties of Engineering. In the last ten years the life of the neighborhood has also improved thanks to the Triennale Bovisa, an important center of modern and contemporary art.
