Milan Expo focuses in "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life"
World Expo 2015, which opened in Milan last month and runs until the end of October will focus in "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" World expositions date back to 1851 in London and the 2015 event features 145 participating countries, 53 of which have their own architecturally designed pavilion.
Located half an hour outside of the city center of Milan, the Expo 2015 grounds cover more than one million square meters (10.75 million sq ft), incorporating an array of impressive architectural projects and unique landscapes that represent different cultural identities.
In addition to the 53 pavilions, visitors can explore the five thematic zones which include: Pavilion Zero; The Future Food District; Children’s Park; Biodiversity Park and Arts and Food. These explore the story of mankind and food; the current paradox of famine and obesity, shortage and abundance and ideas of what future food supplies might look like.
The theme of the expo is "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life," singling food out as one of the most important issues for the 21st century. This was an interesting move for the Bureau International des Expositions, the institution in charge of organizing these events every five years since 1928 (the first one took place in London 1851).
Expo 2015 is open to the public from 10 am to 11 pm seven days a week until 31 October 2015 and an adult ticket will set you back €39.
