It is an area rich in hills, beautiful landscapes and, although not formally under a recognized territorial body, the areas of Brianza have many things in common and this has helped to create a marked sense of belonging among its inhabitants. Brianza is one of the most economically advanced and densely inhabited areas in Italy. According to some scholars, the protagonist of the Second Industrial Revolution is one of the most productive regions of the European continent. All of this was paid at a certainly high price: between 1900 and 2000, many areas were disfigured, polluted and destroyed to make room for industries, factories and new population centers.
However, in the last decades many parks and nature reserves have been set up, protected areas and reclamation and recovery work has been started. In fact, especially the upper Brianza, is rich in many villas of Milan nobles in which they also hosted national and international figures: poets, writers and painters, invited in these palms surrounded by huge parks, sang and represented the natural beauties and landscapes of Brianza in very famous works.
