Interior minister, Angelino Alfano, added he would double the number of officers in the army to handle the chaos.
Mr Alfano said: “We will send 150 more soldiers to Milan to support the police, who are already operating at the highest level.
“When I became minister there were 400 military officers. The goal is to double that number.”
The minister was speaking at a security summit in Milan where the city’s mayor, Giuseppe Sala, said he begged the government to intervene after the city became overrun with migrants.
Mayor Sala said: “We are working to prevent and take action where necessary, so we asked the government to increase the number of soldiers that are already in the city.”
During the summit, which was held in the Palazzo Marino, it was also decided that military will be redirected from Rome to the city to deal with the crisis.

The mayor and government minister said the army will be in charge of “supervision of sensitive sites” while police will look after other key places such as the main train station where migrant gangs gather.
Mayor Sala said: “We believe in the use of mixed patrols and more military officers will strengthen those forces in the most difficult routes and meeting places.”
The announcement comes after a knife fight broke out between migrants from the Philippines in the city.

The mayor also announced he his halting all new arrivals of migrants in the city until the situation is under control.
He added: “It has reached its quota. There will be a stop to migrant arrivals. The weight of immigration feels heavy because there are municipalities that do not accept migrants and others have to cope. We’ll try to get them to work together.”
