Photographer's Note

Another view in the Parco Sud Milano, on the western side of the city; an image from the stone bridge over the small Naviglio di Berguardo, one of the several artifical canals on Milan, that was built between the 1420 and the 1470 by Francesco I° Sforza (July 23, 1401 - March 8, 1466; he was an Italian condottiero, the founder of the Sforza dynasty in Milan).
As the other Navigli, it was one of the largest post-medieval engineering projects, allowing development of commerce, transport and agriculture.

The Naviglio di Bereguardo leave the Naviglio Grande close to Abbiategrasso and runs for 19 kms South to Bereguardo, close to Pavia and the Ticino river.
It drops 24 meters using 12 "conche" (lock system).

Bereguardo is a municipality in the Province of Pavia in the Lombardy, located about 25 km southwest of Milan and about 12 km northwest of Pavia; it had a population of 2,523.

The name of the small city come from the french "Beau Regard", a common name used in the Mid Age to indicate a hunting location; Bereguardo was the hunting reserve of the Visconti Family, the second Lords of Milan, after the Della Torre family and before the Sforza family.

P.S.
The small white dot on the top right side of the image is a plane approching Malpensa Airport, that it's 40 kms North.
