The Municipality of Milan, in 1913, granted the future University land at the eastern gates of the city for a “Città degli Studi” (literally, “Studies City”), a name still used not only in reference to the University, but also for the entire district that hosts it.

In these places rich in history, the University of Milan has the headquarters of four of its scientific Faculties: Agricultural and Food Sciences, Science and Technology, Pharmacy and the School of Exercise and Sport Sciences, divided into several buildings located between Via Celoria, via Golgi and via Saldini.
