Extraordinary and unique...
This is how Expo Milano will introduce itself from May 1st
to October 31st of 2015.
And it will indeed be a Universal Exhibition with entirely
innovative characteristics. Not only a collection of
exhibits, but more an intense process of participation
that will actively involve the interested parties – the
organising country, participating nations, international
organisations, civil society, visitors, partners, scientific
and International economic communities – to focus on
one central theme for the fate of humanity:
"Feeding the Planet,
Energy for Life"
World Expo Milano 2015
The themes of Expo
Improving the quality and safety of our food, means
ensuring that we have enough food to live on and being
certain that we are consuming healthy food and
drinkable water.
Ensuring a good quality, healthy diet is available to
human beings, to eliminate hunger, thirst, infant
mortality and malnutrition, which today afflicts 850
million people on the plant, so eradicating famine and
Preventing new important social illnesses of our
age, from obesity to cardiovascular illnesses, from
tumors to the most widespread epidemics, promoting
practices that allow these illnesses to be cured and
Innovating the entire food chain with research,
technology and enterprise, to improve the nutritional
characteristics of the products, their storage and
Educating people about how to eat properly to
favour new lifestyles, in particular for children,
adolescents, the differently abled and the elderly.
Promote knowledge of “food traditions” as cultural and
ethnic elements.
At Expo the frontier of science
technology will be on display
Preserving biodiversity, respecting the environment
as the ecosystem of agriculture, protecting the quality
and safety of food, educating people about personal
health and wellbeing.
Identifying better tools to monitor and innovate,
starting with biotechnologies that do not pose a threat
to health and the environment, with a vision to
guarantee availability of nutritious, healthy food and
water to drink and for irrigation.
Ensuring new food sources in the areas of the globe
where agriculture is not developed or is threatened by
the desertification of lands and forests, by drought and
famine, and by the ecological fish impoverishment of
rivers and seas.
Expo Info
Description of Expo
The area chosen for the event location is in the north-eastern part of Milan, at
the crossroads between the A9 Milan-Lakes motorway and the A4 Milan-Turin. It
spans a surface area of 1.1 million m² and is adjacent to the new Fiera di Milano
exhibition centre. The layout of Expo resembles an island surrounded by a canal
of water and is structured along the perpendicular axes of the World Avenue or
Decumano and the Cardo, following on the architecture of ancient Roman
cities. All the national pavilions are similarly positioned, overlooking the large
main road, which is 1.5 km long and 35 metres wide. The Italian Regional and
Provincial pavilions are set out along the Cardo instead, which is 325 metres
long and 35 metres wide. Where the two axes meet, there is a large square,
Piazza Italia of 4,350 m².
"Palazzo Italia", the pavilion of the organising country, stands tall to the north
of the Cardo and looks out over Lake Arena, an arena resembling a lake, which
is 98 metres in diameter. The southern side hosts an Open Air Theatre of
around 10,000 m² offering a total of around 9,000 seats.
At one end of the Decumano there is a large artificial hill (82,800 cubic metres
in volume) and the Expo Center stands at the other end, composed of three
independent functional blocks: auditorium (southern block), performance area
(central block) and office building (northern block), spanning a total of around
6,300 m². The first two blocks are designed to be dismantled when the Expo
ends, while the office building will remain a permanent fixture.
The two main entrances to the site, to the south and west, feature two
passageways which respectively link the Cascina Merlata area and the suburban
district of the Fiera di Milano.
In addition to the pavilions of the various nations taking part, Expo
guests can visit the following dedicated themed areas
Future food district
Biodiversity park
Arts & foods
Clusters (pavilions supported by many nations)
Fruit and legumes

World Expo Milano 2015
Italian Pavilion
It is a bright, futuristic project. The two core themes are the
Vivaio (Plant Nursery) and the Albero della Vita (Tree of
Life): the Plant Nursery is intended as the place where the next
generations grow, the symbolic place in which to develop a
green future, respecting nature and the environment. The Tree of
Life, is based on five main elements: water, energy, transparency,
nature and technology.
German Pavilion
It has sails and two itineraries, inside and outside. An open, freely
accessible and welcoming building based on the link between
nature and agriculture, between nature and food.
Expo Info
Austrian Pavilion
Technology, ecology and air are at the centre of the Austrian
pavilion. Their concept is air as a common good. The importance
of its purity, the cycle and the balance of the planet are explored
in an area that will also have woodland vegetation inside it that
can produce 62.5 kg of oxygen per hour.
Swiss Pavilion
The concept reflects the scarcity of food resources in the world
and shows the other side of abundance. It consists of four towers
filled with local produce that the visitors can obtain. However,
there are limited resources available. Going over this limit means
depriving other visitors of the same opportunities. The project
focuses on the availability and distribution of food resources in the
world and invites visitors to reflect on their consumption habits.
World Expo Milano 2015
French Pavilion
It is an architectural display of reusable wood, energy efficiency
and environmental sustainability, which combines French nature
with a rich garden, environmentally responsible architecture,
technology and a cultural study.
Chinese Pavilion
The theme is Land of hope, food for life. It is strongly oriented
towards ecological and alimentary sustainability, to the
enhancement of traditions and the need to find the right balance
between economic development and the preservation of the
planet. It is a huge structure made of wood, rice and bamboo
whose curves represent ripples on the grain, while recalling the
traditional architectural lines of the Asian nation.
Expo Info
Azerbaijani Pavilion
Largest producer and exporter of organic, wholesome and healthy
products, Azerbaijan promotes the historical and cultural traditions
in the food sector and introduce a new political vision on
sustainable development and biodiversity. The architecture is very
simple and modern and is built with traditional materials such as
wood and stone, which are combined in an innovative way with
metal and glass.
Mexican Pavilion
It is reminiscent of an ear of corn and its peel, the totomoxtle. The
structure fully expresses the link between food, tradition and
sustainability. Inside there is a rich display of typical products,
surrounded by flowing water that gives life to the gardens, to the
discovery of Mexico's culinary, ecological and cultural wealth.
World Expo Milano 2015
Malaysian Pavilion
The building is shaped like four huge seeds from the rainforest,
which are both open and closed, with exposed beams and wooden
walkways, and materials made from rice husks. A journey towards
a sustainable food ecosystem within buildings shaped like seeds
that recall the origin of life itself. The seeds represent traditional
Malaysian cuisine.
Vietnamese Pavilion
Water is the most important element in the world for feeding and
giving life to all living things, but in reality, it is threatened by the
effects of pollution, intensive fishing and waste. The lotus is a
very common flower in Vietnam. It grows in the mud, and can
purify the water in which it grows. The message is about their
commitment to actively protecting the environment and water
Expo Info
Romanian Pavilion
The theme is Living with Nature. It appears to be suspended
between the past and the future: it is presented as a fusion of
modernity and tradition, of agriculture and sustainability. It is a
contemporary reinterpretation of a typical Romanian village.
Israeli Pavilion
The main feature is the “vertical garden”: a 70-metre-long wall
that is 12 metres high and completely covered with living
plants, whose flowers and colours will change with the passing
of the seasons. The reference to vegetation symbolises the
country's cutting-edge position in the agriculture and food sector
and in the fight against desertification. Through work, research
and development, they have been able to make much of their arid
land fertile. It offers a wonderful journey through agricultural
engineering with a glimpse at humanity's future.

Milan, the Expo city
Culture, Fashion, Architecture, Leonardo and
the Dolce Vita...
Milan, the second largest city in Italy, is a lively, irresistible
metropolis that has become the symbol of Italy's “Dolce
Vita”. Streets and lanes brimming with history unwind
between the famous Duomo and “Teatro alla Scala”,
alongside excellent restaurants, characteristic bars and
fashionable shops.
Many famous fashion houses were founded in Milan, such as
for example Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and
Dolce & Gabbana. No other city beats Milan for a city
shopping break!
And it also tops the bill in terms of important modern
architecture: entire areas have been transformed and in the
space of a few years its skyline will look completely different.
Last but decidedly not least, the dolce vita of Milan, also the
most vibrant, dynamic city when it comes to eating and
Many of the trends exported to Europe were born here, and
its many bars and restaurants vie with one another to
constantly offer residents and visitors new experiences.

La Terrazza Martini
Located high up, standing proud above the spires
of the Duomo and the rooftops of the ancient city,
Terrazza Martini has been a symbol of Milan and
its vocation for all that is international since 1958.
It is based in a setting that has left its mark on
time: it has seen the most illustrious protagonists
from the cultural and celebrity worlds pass by
from the top level of Piazza Diaz; here, some of
the biggest names in international cinema were
presented to the Italian public. Renovated twice
during the course of its history, today the Terrazza
has a modern, luxurious image that combines
design and functionality.

that are suitable for hosting a refined event of a

the interiors and the furniture.
The large indoor dining room, overlooking the
contemporary skyline of the new Varesine
business centre, features two swimming pools and
a panoramic terrace that enables its guests to
taste the Chef's creations “en plein air”
surrounded by nature.

Sironi, whose distinguishing mark is his “exacting
simplicity”: the rediscovery of great classics of
Italian cuisine, redeveloped to enhance the
practical goodness of the flavours.

building are two magnificent swimming pools with
a 360° view of the city. During the day they offer a

list allows diners to drink a toast to a charming
informal evening, during which they are attended
to by efficient staff who provide a quick service.
Capacity: up to 100 people in several rooms.
Location: Porta Romana area

Giacomo Arengario
The restaurant of the Museo del Novecento is a
tribute to the “Decò” period. The “period rooms”
divide the various areas of the restaurant: a Hall,
with low tables, armchairs and sofas; a Bar with
elements in black lacquered wood and mirrors,
which evoke the metaphysical architecture of those
years; a restaurant Hall, decorated with wooden
panelling and old mirrors, with a coffered ceiling. A
1930s style red lacquered panelled Gallery which
opens on to the kitchen. And, last but not least, the
Outdoor Area: the structure features a basic design
in iron and glass, which affords diners a unique
view of Piazza Duomo. A short journey to savour
the atmosphere of a lost era, which has left its
mark on the aesthetics of our own day and age.
Capacity: up to 100 people in several rooms.
Location: DUOMO area.
