The Idroscalo is a seaplane port, located not far from the airport of Linate: it is called the sea of Milan. Today, this vast artificial water reservoir has been transformed into a centre for recreational and sporting activities. It lends itself to canoeing, rowing, motorboating.
The Fiorita Island deserves attention, connected with the mainland by two wooden bridges. The islet is surrounded by reeds from the nearby dock where you can appreciate various animals and especially water birds. Nearby we also find beautiful flower beds that flower especially in spring light up with magnificent colors. In the middle of the Fiorita Island there is the monument to the Resistance made by the sculptor Mario Robaudi.
For the lovers of running it must be said that the place is crossed by a running circuit, for all the others it is possible to take a simple and romantic walk. There are also various and varied sports activities that can be enjoyed by visitors. These include rowing, canoeing, sailing, water skiing with Cable Ski, and finswimming. Bathing is possible, but for safety reasons only, the area where you can bathe is bounded by buoys. Families will not be disappointed either. In fact, there are many entertainments intended and designed for them. It’s easy to spend time in a fun and entertaining way.
The Idroscalo fed by the waters coming from the Martesana Canal from a spring water table, already starting from 1934 was used for rowing competitions. It triumphantly became part of the city’s imagery when in 1960 director Luchino Visconti shot the most famous scene of the film “Rocco and His Brothers” with Alain Delon. Image far from the joyful Idropark of today.
