The history of the racetrack

Monza Park and Villa Reale

Monza Park is one of the largest enclosed parks in Europe . Its extension, in fact, reaches 700 hectares, almost three times more than that of the Palace of Versailles.

The first evidence of the establishment of the Park dates back to 1805 and was commissioned by Eugenio di Beauharnais, stepson of Napoleon and viceroy of the Kingdom of Italy. On 14 September of the same year an imperial decree was issued for its construction in the Monza area, with the aim of making it a model, agricultural and hunting estate.

The structuring of the vast agricultural and wooded territory has given life to an unprecedented Park, still today, unique in its kind. The works were enormous, from the adaptation and transformation of the farmhouses and the important architectures of existing villas , to the construction and reorganization of wide straight tree- lined avenues , from the modeling of the land to the adaptation of the water system to the new needs. The Monza Park, in fact, holds 11 farmhouses, 1 pheasant, 3 mills, 1 pavilion and 1 menagerie.

In the last decade, following some interventions to make the racetrack track safe, the Lombardy Region, in collaboration with the interested Municipalities, with the Lambro Valley Park and with the Superintendency of Monuments of Milan, has point and funded a three-year program of extraordinary interventions for the redevelopment of the Park and the structures it contains. The plan includes, among other things, the rehabilitation of the woods, the restoration of the historic villas and farmhouses, and the improvement of the use of the Park. Over the years, in fact, this historic place has been recognized as a space capable of satisfying the most diverse sporting, cultural and artistic needs.

In the park it is possible to walk, either on foot or by bicycle , but also to attend and participate in sporting events , concerts , cultural events . In addition, it houses two permanent installations (Aviary for Humans and The Writer).
