Our school is a secondary school, teaching general education with an emphasis on sciences (Liceo Scientifico). It is situated in a fine building in the north- west of Milan, at 96-98 via Mac Mahon.
The school is named after Piero Bottoni (1903-1973), a Milanese architect who, from the 30s on, actively worked as an urbanist and greatly contributed to the new city-planning scheme in the postwar reconstruction. He also planned the building of a new settlement at the outskirts of Milan (QT8) and was politically engaged, both nationally and locally, against any form of public property speculation.
