Milano Cadorna is a commuter railway station located near the Castello Sforzesco in Milan, Italy.

History

The original station, built in wood in the style of a chalet, was opened in 1879. This was enlarged in 1920, but the station was destroyed during the bombing raids of the city in the Second World War. The current structure and the homonymous square were completely restored in 1999 under a Gae Aulenti project. The station is named after the General of the Italian Army Luigi Cadorna.[1]

Transport

Passenger services from this station, by commuter, suburban, regional and express trains, are operated by Trenord.[2]
