Milano Map Typeface

I am needing to identify the two fonts used on the cover of this old Italian Milano map.
I am assuming "Milano" is a condensed version of the other font used, but I could be wrong.
Any ideas are much appreciated. Thanks!

Decided to treat the 2 fonts separately, look too different for me.
Milano: close are (DIN) Neuzeit Grotesk/Geometric 706, Proxima Nova Extra Condensed (playing with versions to get the single storey /a)
PIANTA * MAP * PLAN (and the rest except MILANO): can't find a font that could match both lower and uppercases. Here are some you may find interesting though: Planeta (Plakat, /M and /I off), CityOf (no lowercases), Erbar (Neo Mini but /a off), Monod, Kessel 105, (DIN) Neuzeit Grotesk/Geometric 706 (not enough naive but family could work for both "Milano" and "PIANTA..."), Ziamimi (no lowercases), Nanami (/M off), Damian (/I and /G off mainly), Ealing (/M off), Report School (/M and /I off), Alumia (no lowercases), Throne Gothic (no lowercases, used to be sold at Ten Dollar Fonts), Diamonds (no lowercases), Dupe, Leberka (/G off), Toronto Subway (/M and /G off), Euclid, Maax (playing with alternates /A, /M and/a, /G still off)
