Geographical notes:

Milan is located in the center of the Po Valley, about halfway from the two major tributaries of the Po (Ticino and Adda), in a semi-flat area. The municipal area is crossed by the Lambro, Olona and Seveso rivers. Milan is almost entirely built on alluvial soil. The major reliefs are artificial (the mountain of San Siro, built with the rubble of the Second World War and with the resulting material from underground excavations) or of very little importance (Mount Merlo, protruding no more than 15 meters from the plain). The structure of the city is perfectly radial (with the sole exception of the Città studi district) and has five concentric belts:

The circle of Navigli, which is the innermost one, in whose design Leonardo da Vinci participated; the canals of the circle have long been covered. It remained as a road ring road enclosing what remains of the medieval city. It winds (clockwise) in via De Amicis, via Carducci, in the moat of the Castello Sforzesco, via Pontaccio (which was the headquarters of the shippers), via Fatebenefratelli, via Senato, via Visconti di Modrone, via Francesco Sforza, via Santa Sofia, via Molino delle Armi
