The Cascina Torchiera is a historic "cascina a corte" (farmhouse) of Milan, Italy, dating back to the first half of the 14th century. It is located in Zone 8, adjacent to the Maggiore cemetery, in the Musocco/Garegnano district, and qualifies as one of the oldest surviving cascine within the city boundaries. The cascina is formally the property of the Comune di Milano city administration, but has become a squatted social center since the 1990s.
