Nova Milanese is a town of 23,292 inhabitants (as of 31 December 2015) in the Italian province of Monza and Brianza, in the Lombardy region. The original name was just "Nova", it was later supplemented by "Milanese" to distinguish it from other homonymous municipalities in Italy. The place name should not be confused with Novate Milanese, which is only a few kilometers further to the east in the metropolitan city of Milan. The neighboring towns are Cinisello Balsamo, Monza, Muggiò, Paderno Dugnano, Cusano Milanino, Sesto San Giovanni and Bresso. Nova Milanese is conveniently located just 16 km from Milan and 6 km from Monza. The place was characterized by agriculture until the beginning of the 20th century. The Villoresi canal, which opened in 1881 and thwarted the city, favored the transport of agricultural products to the respective markets and enabled better irrigation of the soil. After the Second World War, Nova Milanese developed into a rapidly growing industrial location, especially for small and medium-sized businesses.
