Rodano is a city and comune in the province of Milan, Lombardy, Italy, with 4,300 inhabitants.

Geography[edit]

The territory of Rodano, 13 kilometres (8 mi) east of Milan, is part of the Parco Agricolo Sud Milano and has large areas committed to agriculture. The several spring pools that are still active are very important to the city and represent a typical feature of the Pianura Padana. The Muzzetta Springs, a WWF protected area, are an example of beautiful reserve and can be visited upon request.

Rodano hosts several sights worth a visit. Among them are Longobard graves on display in front of the City Hall and Europe's finest Scooter and Lambretta Museum which offers a range of mopeds and scooters dating back to the beginning of the 20th century and the full historical archive of Innocenti, makers of the world-famous Lambretta.
