The Italian Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 showcases Italy’s excellence, the country’s culture and traditions related to food and eating, which are typified by high-quality, from the raw materials through to the finished product. Consisting of Palazzo Italia, of the four buildings along the Cardo, or north-south avenue on the site, and the Lake Arena, the Italian Pavilion at Expo offers some 14,000 square meters of exhibition space.
Palazzo Italia
Palazzo Italia constitutes the very heart of the Expo site, and will remain, post-event, as a center for technological innovation for the city of Milan. The concept and the design of the building is by Studio Nemesi & Partners S.r.l., along with Proger S.p.A. and BMS Progetti S.r.l., in line with the original concept by Marco Balich, Creative Director: Italy as a Nursery for New Energies, a nest for the future, with a rich past that is anything but a gloomy museum of its past glories.

A inicios de este año, Daniel Libeskind se asoció con Immersive e Innovision para realizar una serie de esculturas de 10 metros de altura, las cuales están delineando la plaza central de la Expo Milán 2015. Las estructuras de aluminio, iluminadas con luces LED, fueron diseñadas para “animar el espacio público a través de un flujo constante de patrones vibrantes e imágenes relacionadas con el tema de la Expo: la salud, la energía, la sostenibilidad y la tecnología”. Las esculturas permanecerán en exhibición hasta el término de la Expo, que concluye el 31 de octubre de 2015.

El árbol de la Vida
La imponente estructura que este año viste las instalaciones de Expo Milán, y que ha causado impacto alrededor del mundo, es “El árbol de la vida”, una instalación interactiva de Orgoglio Brescia, diseñada por Marco Balich que mide 37 metros de altura y constituye un gran espectáculo de luz.
La estructura se encuentra junto al Lake Arena, el lago artificial de forma circular que está rodeado por 3 mil espacios para descansar, desde donde se puede apreciar el espectáculo de luz de “El árbol de la vida”, cuyo diseño de iluminación estuvo a cargo de ACT, agencia responsable de la escenografía. La Expo Milán 2015, con el tema Alimentar el planeta, energía para la vida, permanecerá hasta el 31 de octubre de este año, y se espera la asistencia de una gran cantidad de personas.
