Metis Lighting’s headquarters is located at the Northeast Milan area, at a suburban context, in Via Padova. This district had been often been on the newspapers and media for ‘’urban guerilla’’ and criminality events. At the same time, the district is also a social case study, being a unique field of cohesion and collaboration between a large variety of communities from different countries of origin and religions. The local movements wanted the district to become more extrovert versus Milan for avoiding the danger of marginalisation but also to ignite a sense of belonging, dignity and pride to the inhabitants. This is the story of the local festival ‘’Via Padova è il meglio di Milano’’ – Via Padova is the best of Milan.
