The Idroscalo was inaugurated on October 28, 1930, three years after the first announcement of the project by the Extraordinary Commissioner of the Provincial Deputation. It is the airport for seaplanes, even if the aviation activity runs aground after some sporadic episodes.
The Idroscalo is a basin fed by spring waters and by those coming from the Martesana Canal.

The spontaneous use of Idroscalo as a meeting place takes place over time, and at the end of the 1930s the basin became “Il mare di Milano”.

Since the 1930s it has also established itself as the ideal venue for sports events of national importance, but not only.

Among the athletes who frequent Idroscalo, the rowers, in particular, find in this clean and shallow basin an ideal competition field, so much so that in 1934 the National Rowing Championships are organized and in 1938 the European Championships and in 2003, for the first time the World Championships.

The first interventions on the greenery around the basin date back to 1938, later extended with the great afforestation carried out in the years 1957 and 1958. The Idroscalo park was born.

In 1960 the Idroscalo enters the collective imagination and the history of cinema: along its banks, in fact, is set the most famous sequence of the film "Rocco and his brothers", the masterpiece of the famous director Luchino Visconti.

Since the 1990s, the Idroscalo park has been the consolidated summer meeting place in Milan and its surroundings.

In 2008 marks the 70th anniversary of Idroscalo, now definitively established as a meeting place, leisure and multi-sports activity, embellished and completed in the offer to the public by numerous initiatives of international level: sports, cultural, entertainment and entertainment.

2010 the new challenge: the Idroscalo is recognized by the Institutions according to EXPO 2015 site - after Rho Fiera - and a path is undertaken that is based on the principles of sustainability, quality, safety, well-being.

It is not history yet, it is the Idroscalo that we can live today!
