WiMi: Milan wired

(issue no. 143/2011 / May 19, 2011)

Fifteen years ago, the area between Milan's San Babila and the Sforzesco Castle was the largest urban pedestrian area in Europe; today, it is the largest free wi-fi area in city. Called WiMi, the wi-fi area allows netizens to tweet from the Victor Emanuel Gallery and upload photos of the Madonnina in Piazza Duomo to Facebook just minutes after taking them. The service currently allows free, one-hour Internet access. City officials plan to extend the service soon to other parts of the city and all schools in Milan.
