The Aquarium Milan was founded in 1906 and it is one of the oldest in the world. The Aquarium Milan and municipal hydro-biological station is housed in a Viennese art nouveau building located in the Sempione park area, which reproduces the elliptical architecture, not far from the Sforza Castle. It is located adjacent to the Arena Civic. The current structure of the building and of the tanks the Aquarium Milan is the result of restructuring (2003-2006).
The facade of the aquarium includes a Neptune statue, the Roman god of water and the sea, created by sculptor Oreste Labò. The aquarium library, which is open to the public, has one of Italy’s most prestigious collection of marine biology publications.
The new exhibition path of Aquarius Water will tell the story since the precipitations flow into a mountain stream until the sea. The reconstructed environments are Italian and Mediterranean.
