The growth of monocentric cities, such as Milano, through ever-growing radial rings, is thought and described mainly as a centrifugal process. It brings a radial shapes to the maps. The external boundaries of the city, suddenly became unrecognizable, are the object and the main issue in the debate on its expansion.  To describe its nature, the term “endless city” has been invented. Using destruction as a constructive agent here, we can see how the rings can bring a full new geography to the city.
