This morning saw the inauguration of the new leisure and sports centre 'The Village' in Sesto San Giovanni, Via Nino Bixio, built by Aedes in a club deal with other entrepreneurs.

Among those present were the Mayor, other city authorities, and Bishop Mons. Angelo Pavesi who imparted his blessing.

The 11,000-m² facility occupies the site of the former Carmen Longo baths. It features four water areas, three food&beverage facilities run by the Area Kitchen brand, a gym, a solarium area, and relaxation areas surrounded by greenery.

The facility will be open to the public from 15 June and aims to become a true open-air summer lido, with swimming pools, green areas, bar, restaurant and gym, for the entire North Milan area.
