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 [Bad link]/[Bad link], [Bad link] 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: [Bad link] (Plakat, /M and /I off), [Bad link] (no lowercases), [Bad link] (Neo Mini but /a off), [Bad link], [Bad link], [Bad link]/[Bad link] (not enough naive but family could work for both "Milano" and "PIANTA..."), [Bad link] (no lowercases), [Bad link] (/M off), [Bad link] (/I and /G off mainly), [Bad link] (/M off), [Bad link] (/M and /I off), [Bad link] (no lowercases), [Bad link] (no lowercases, used to be sold at [Bad link]), [Bad link] (no lowercases), [Bad link], [Bad link] (/G off), [Bad link] (/M and /G off), [Bad link], [Bad link] (playing with alternates /[Bad link], /[Bad link] and/[Bad link], /G still off)
