History of rail transport in Milan[edit]

In the huge explosion of "rail transport in the 19th century, Milan was one of the places that invested in the development of this type of transport.

In the late 1830s, Emperor "Ferdinand I of Austria granted "the privilege to build a road on iron rails from "Milan to "Monza" to the Holzhammer company of "Bolzano. The privilege authorized the construction of a railway project developed by the Milanese engineer Giulio Sarti.[1]

The "Milan–Monza railway, opened in 1840, was the first railway line in Lombardy, and the second in Italy after the "Naples–Portici railway. Milan's first railway station, Porta Nuova,[2] formed part of the new railway. It was placed outside the circle of ramparts, near the "Porta Nuova city gate, from which it took its name.

In February 1846 came the second Milanese railway station, Porta Tosa-Vittoria, near the city gate of the same name, and outside the circle of ramparts.[3] For eleven years, this station served as the terminus of the Milan–"Treviglio railway, which is the Lombard section of the "Milan-Venice railway. Since 1857, with the opening of the Treviglio–Bergamo–Coccaglio railway, Porta Tosa station became the western terminus of the railway linking Milan with "Venice, the other capital city of the then "Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia.

With the decision to extend the Monza railway further north to "Como, it was necessary to widen the Porta Nuova railway station by adding extra space, along the banks of the "Naviglio Martesana. The new larger station, with a sizeable three bay train hall covering the tracks and trains, entered service in 1850.[1] Today, the station building of this now former station, which was closed in 1931, can still be recognized inside the "barracks of the "Guardia di Finanza, in via Melchiorre Gioia.
