Ortica (City Hall 3) is the smallest neighborhood in Milan and bounds part of its eastern border. The place-name Ortica, which originated from the fact that this plant was originally widespread on its fields, began to establish itself only in the decades following the construction of the railroad to Treviglio, which would form a caesura between the area to the north, which was industrial in character, and the area to the south, which remained agricultural. The symbolic centerpiece of Ortica is the 13th-century church dedicated to Saints Faustino and Giovita, which stands on the ancient Roman consular road that reached Aquileia. Although the deindustrialization that began in the 1990s has profoundly transformed the working-class neighborhood, its working-class identity and old-fashioned spirit can still be breathed among its streets. Since 2017, the streets of this neighborhood have also been enriched by the beautiful murals of Or.Me, an urban regeneration project that has created a veritable open-air museum: images, colors, memory and history intertwine in a neighborhood that still smells like a village and is reminiscent of old Milan.
