This case study examines the potential for the urban context resulting from the privileged position given by the Sempione and Gottardo rail connections, enhanced by new tunnels and by the possible relaunch of Malpensa airport. This is interesting from a macro-urban planning viewpoint because these conditions are strategic to ensuring a more balanced regional configuration, capable of solving the problem of inadequate connections between the peripheral towns of Lombardy and enhancing the Milan-Lombard economy as a whole. The opportunity was given by work to verify how the preparation of a ‘Territorial Governance Plan’ should be performed not only to be consistent with broader overriding planning configurations, but also how they can contribute to the development of potential resulting from an urban organisation and also contribute to the improvement of a large city system of European standing, that does not consist of Milan and the central urban area alone.
