illy partecipa al Cluster del Caffè
MappaVideoFoto1 / 1
StartStop

Nuovi elementi vanno ad arricchire il progetto Cluster, una delle più importanti innovazioni dell’Esposizione Universale di Milano. Grazie alla partnership tra Expo 2015 S.p.A. e illy, il caffè, fedele alleato nella giornata-tipo degli italiani, sarà indiscusso e appassionante protagonista di percorsi, convegni e mostre organizzate nel Cluster dedicato.

Il Cluster del Caffè riunisce i maggiori produttori mondiali del prezioso chicco, come Costa Rica, El Salvador, Etiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Nicaragua e Uganda. Raggruppati sotto la stessa struttura architettonica, questi Paesi condivideranno idee ed esperienze, svelando ai visitatori le caratteristiche fragranze che rendono ciascuna miscela unica e inimitabile. Nell’area comune del Cluster, si potrà scoprire l’importanza di questa pianta e dei suoi prodotti con esposizioni ed eventi dedicati al caffè e conoscere le varie culture e i riti nati intorno ai frutti dell’ “Albero dai chicchi d’oro”, come viene chiamato in Kenya.

“Grazie al progetto che illy ha sviluppato per Expo Milano 2015, il Cluster del caffè sarà uno degli spazi espositivi più divertenti e attrattivi - ha spiegato l’Amministratore Delegato di Expo 2015 S.p.A. Giuseppe Sala -. Con l’azienda di Trieste, l’abilità e l’esperienza italiana nel caffè sarà ben rappresentata all’interno dell’Esposizione Universale. Il Cluster diventerà una produttiva piazza di incontro e di scambio, il luogo adatto in cui far nascere nuove sinergie tra le realtà più dinamiche del settore e attivare collaborazioni che daranno i loro frutti in futuro”.

Le tradizioni dei Paesi saranno valorizzate da un ricco e articolato programma di eventi, mostre e incontri pensati per favorire il dialogo tra culture e tradizioni e mettere a frutto il patrimonio unico di esperienze e conoscenze che le caratterizza. Grazie alla rete internazionale di illy, Expo Milano 2015 entrerà a far parte del programma di promozione e Sviluppo dell’ICO (International Coffee Organization), punto di riferimento per l’intero settore. Il Cluster del Caffè diventerà così il luogo adatto in cui affrontare anche altre sfide decisive per il futuro del pianeta: da quella sulla nutrizione a quella per lo sviluppo di un’agricoltura sostenibile.

“Costruiremo e offriremo ai visitatori un’esperienza completa intorno al mondo del caffè e dei Paesi da cui proviene - ha dichiarato Andrea Illy -. Porteremo alla conoscenza di un pubblico internazionale la storia, il sapere, l’innovazione, il gusto e la passione che guidano la nostra azienda e che si trovano in ogni tazzina del nostro caffè”.

In un percorso che vedrà susseguirsi incontri divulgativi, convegni, degustazioni e momenti di intrattenimento, trova spazio anche il reportage fotografico che Sebastião Salgado ha realizzato per Illy a partire dal 2002. Nell’area comune saranno esposte le immagini che il grande fotografo brasiliano ha scattato per raccontare le persone, le storie, i volti e i gesti dei coltivatori di caffè, insieme al fascino dei luoghi dove i chicchi maturano e vengono raccolti e lavorati.

“Il mosaico di Expo si riempie di eccellenze per un successo sicuro dell'evento e unendo temi economici, sociali, culturali e artistici - ha affermato il sindaco di Milano e Commissario straordinario per Expo Milano 2015 Giuliano Pisapia, presente all'annuncio della partnership alla Triennale di Milano il 6 Marzo -. Una delle eccellenze italiane più conosciute nel mondo farà del Cluster del caffè un punto di incontro tra i più significativi dell’Expo milanese, per l’importanza che questa materia prima riveste nell’economia di molti Paesi del Sud del Pianeta e per il ruolo che il caffè ha tradizionalmente

We will bring to the knowledge of an international audience the history, know-how, innovation, taste and passion driving our Company and found in every cup of our coffee”.

In a calendar full of meetings, conferences, tastings and entertaining moments, there is space for exhibiting the photographic reportage Sebastião Salgado realized for Illy since 2002.

In the common area the images the great Brazilian photographer took will be displayed to tell through people’s stories and faces the everyday-life of coffee farmers, together with the charm of all the lands where the beans ripen, are harvested and processed.

Israel signs the Participation Contract of Expo Milano 2015


This morning the State of Israel signed the participation contract of Expo 2015 and secured itself a strategic position within the exhibition site. The pavilion will be built at the intersection of the Cardo and Decumanus, an area adjacent to the Italian Pavilion. The contract, which defines Israel’s commitment at the Universal Exposition in Milan, was signed by the Commissioner General of the Israeli Pavilion, Elazar Cohen, and by Giuseppe Sala, CEO of Expo 2015 S.p.A.

With the signature of Israel, Expo Milano 2015 has now signed 35 contracts out of a total of 123 countries which have so far confirmed their participation.

The ceremony, which was attended by the Commissioner General of Expo Milano 2015, Roberto Formigoni, was preceded by a panel discussion regarding scientific research and innovation applied to agriculture in arid areas, a field in which Israel is an International reference point. The meeting was attended Naor Gilon, Ambassador of the State of Israel, by Gideon Meir, Director General for Public Diplomacy, and by Daniel Chamovitz, Director of the "Manna Center" for plant Biosciences at the University of Tel Aviv. The President of the Italian Rabbinical Assembly, Rav Elijah E. Richetti, and Joseph Alonzo, President of the Council for Research and Experimentation in Agriculture, attended the ceremony as representatives of Italy.

Israel is a country in which most of the territory is arid and thus it is a pioneer in the field of agriculture and the management of waste water, a topic which is so crucial to the fight against desertification. In its 2,370 square meter pavillion, Israel will showcase its fundamental contribution to the development of the theme "Feeding the Planet: Energy for life”.

Israel’s excellence in this sector is centered on the use of innovative and technologically advanced solutions in the fields of irrigation and water management, farming in barren areas, intensive greenhouse cultivation, research and development of new varieties of seeds and organic and eco-friendly agriculture.

Israel has achieved remarkable success in fighting desertification thanks to its land reclamation policies and ambitious irrigation systems which have made previously barren areas fertile. An example of this is the Kinneret-Negev aqueduct: a 130 kilometer long system of pipes, pumps and canals that carries water from the Lake Tiberias, in the north of Israel, to the arid south.

“In Milan’s Expo, agriculture will have a fundamental role” said Roberto Formigoni, General Commissioner of Expo Milano 2015. “That is why Israel’s participation is so important particularly in the field of agricultural research. Israel’s investment in the Expo project is a sure guarantee of success. Israel is a pioneer in all these fields, particularly in that of food production techniques in extreme conditions and in the best practices that it has developed. We are therefore delighted that Israel has underwritten the agreement, a deed which further reinforces the well-established friendship at all levels between our two countries”.

"We believe that Israel will make a significant contribution to the theme of Expo Milano 2015” said Elazar Cohen, Commissioner General of the Israeli Pavilion. Our objective is to show visitors the efforts that Israel has put in place in order to 'feed the world' and to showcase the unique spirit of our country in terms of innovation, as well as its culture and ancient tradition”.

"The outstanding innovative expertise of Israel, in the field of technology for agriculture in arid areas, undoubtedly represents a huge added value for the development of the theme 'Feeding the Planet: Energy for Life' ” said Giuseppe Sala, CEO of Expo 2015 S.p.A. “Today's signature seals a partnership that will provide a continuous and fruitful dialogue between all the protagonists of Expo Milano 2015. Each country is asked to share its knowledge and excellence in order to help solve the food and environmental emergencies which are afflicting the planet”.

UAE stresses support, participation in Milano Expo 2015


Abu Dhabi: The UAE has confirmed its support and participation in the next World Expo, which will be held in Milan in 2015.
A meeting of the UAE Expo Planning Group took place at the National Media Council last week. Key parameters of the project were discussed by architects, planners, creative consultants and specialist companies.
Leading companies attending the meetings included the architectural practice founded by Sir Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, that designed much of Masdar City as well as the Abu Dhabi Central Market and the Zayed Museum. They were also architects for the award-winning UAE Pavilion at Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China. That sand-dune shaped building was subsequently brought back to the UAE and now stands on Saadiyat Island, adjacent to Maanarat.
“We hope that the UAE’s success in Shanghai can be repeated and even surpassed in Milan”, stated the Commissioner General of the UAE Pavilion and Director General of the National Media Council, Ebrahim Al Abed.

A key aspect of Expo 2015 Milan is its focus on sustainability and Masdar will play a significant role in helping the Expo 2015 team adhere to ‘One-Planet’ guidelines and achieve a carbon neutral project. “This is not just a matter of good practice and environmental responsibility”, stated the Project Director, “but it is an integral part of the UAE story and its exhibition under the event’s general theme: ‘Feeding the Planet: Energy for Life’”.
“We have some really exciting plans for the UAE’s pavilion at Expo 2015”, stated the Pavilion Director, Abdullah Al Aidarous, adding: “I can promise both the organisers and the general public that the UAE Pavilion will surprise and delight all who will visit it.”
The team will be developing the project throughout this year and will enter the main building phase early in 2014 with the aim of being ready for testing prior to the opening of the Expo in 2015.

Czech Expo 2015 pavilion to be chosen in competition

Prague, (CTK) - The design of the pavilion to represent the Czech Republic at the Expo 2015 world exhibition in Milan will be chosen in a competition in June, to which the late Jan Kaplicky's project will also be admitted, Jiri Frantisek Potuznik said Monday.

Potuznik, general commissioner for Czech participation in Expo 2015, said the government decided on the participation in the event on February 27.

For the first time, a condition for the government to nod to the project worth 260 million crowns was the business sector's financial participation.

"Now we are seeking a legal framework for the tender. We've registered a strong interest [of bidders] from the business sector as well as institutions such as universities," Potuznik said.

He said the overall contributions from private investors and other partners might reach some 50 million crowns.

The cabinet has promised to earmark 60 million crowns for the Czech participation in the Milan event, and another 70 million are available as yields from the previous Expo held in Shanghai in 2010, and 80 million will be provided from ministries, self-rule regions and the capital of Prague.

The media have already reported that the Czech pavilion in Milan might be shaped as "the blob", or Kaplicky's project of Prague's new National Library building that won an international competition but has never been constructed, or as the Stork's Nest, a farm belonging to influential entrepreneur Andrej Babis.

"All this has only been the gathering of information. Only after the tender it will be clear what the new pavilion will look like," said Potuznik.

The winner of the tender is supposed to build and equip the pavilion, which the Czech participation management will hire from him. The building is to be used also after the end of Expo 2015.

The Czech Republic has not chosen or booked a site in the Expo 2015 complex as yet, though 80 percent of its area has already been booked, Potuznik admitted.

At the last expo in 2010, the Czech pavilion won the silver medal for the most creative exhibition. The pavilion remained in China, it was bought by the Farm of Czechoslovak-Chinese Friendship for 33 million crowns.

The then budget of the Czech participation was 470 million crowns.

Brazil at the World Expo


Even the Federative Republic of Brazil has answered the call of Expo Milano 2015: the Country will be at the World Expo. This afternoon the name of the last State to have joined has been announced by a satisfied Mario Monti: “I just personally received the official communication from President Dilma Rousseff, and I want to thank her for this important decision, which revives the old and deep friendship between Italy and Brazil”.

With the confirmation of Brazil, less than 777 days from the opening, Expo Milano 2015 has reached the 124 Official Participants and moves closer to the goal of 130 countries.

“The theme of Expo 2015, 'Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life', - Monti added - brings at the center of the international attention the most important issue of our time: how to ensure proper and safe access to food for an increasing large and demanding population”.

The Italian Council President wished to emphasize how the World Expos have always been an opportunity to give impulse to important projects: “Even more so this will happen in the next edition, considered the theme and the strong Italian and international commitment already in place. The adhesion of Brazil, which leads to 124 countries already confirmed, brings to the Expo a major player on the international stage. As the host Country, Italy is pleased”.

That of Brazil was one of the most awaited confirmations: therefore, it is a result of great importance, as explained by the CEO of Expo 2015 Company Giuseppe Sala: “From today we can count on the cooperation and initiative of all the BRIC countries, for their economic growth considered the leaders on the international scene in the coming years - he said -. Within this context, Brazil is a strategic country for us. In addition to being one of the main representatives of the rich agricultural and food culture and tradition in Latin America, Brazil will be of great help and support in the development of the thematic routes in the exhibition site”.

The CEO Sala is sure “the Brazilian experience in the coffee and cocoa cultivation, for example, will lead to new interpretations on the theme 'Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life' and will give life to new and productive synergies with those Countries taking part in the dedicated Clusters”. For the company organizing the most important international event Italy will host in the coming years, the ok given by Brasilia is a crucial piece in the realization of its project: “A little less than 800 days from 1st May 2015, today we cut with satisfaction the finish line of the 124 official adhesions. A major achievement - has pointed out Sala - which is a measure of how Expo Milano 2015 and Italy represent for all countries in the world an opportunity for growth and development, an appointment not to be missed, an investment that will bring great benefits in the future. The goal of 130 Countries is getting closer and within reach. I am confident that working together with the Government and other institutions we can overcome it, as demonstrated by today news, the result of the incessant and fruitful work of our diplomacy”.

Pleased with the news the Commissioner-General of Expo Milano 2015 Roberto Formigoni said on Twitter: “Brazil joins Expo. A great country we have long courted. We are at 124”.

Its subsidiary Fiera Milano Congressi is an Official Provider and Supplier for Expo 2015.

Under the memorandum of understanding, Fiera Milano will be Pico's local partner in Italy, while Pico will focus on accelerating its marketing efforts, in particular, to participate in the Invitations to Tender (ITTs) given out by countries and organisations participating in Expo 2015 with the intention of providing our expo-related expertise and professional services in the fields of Design, Project Engineering and Construction, Facility Management, Human Resources Management, Food and Beverage, Marketing, Events and Communication and Customs and Pavilion Operations.

To facilitate and expedite marketing and operations processes, a Strategic Committee has been formed which includes representatives from both parties. An office will be set up at the Trade Fair Centre in Rho, just beside Expo Milano 2015 site. This strategic alliance will generate value for both Pico and Fiera Milano, and we are looking forward to creating excellence together in 2015.

Mr. Lawrence Chia, Chairman of Pico, said, "Over the last 26 years, Pico has successfully created more than 70 pavilions at eight world expos and gaining much acclaim for our recent work at the Shanghai World Expo in 2010 and Yeosu Expo in 2012. Our partnership with Fiera Milano in Italy will lay the groundwork and extend our expo expertise to the participating countries and organisations in Expo 2015. We are confident that the Milano Expo 2015 will sustain our strong momentum in the universal exposition sector." Mr. Enrico Pazzali, Chief Executive Officer of Fiera Milano, commented, "This is the beginning of an alliance that I believe can make a highly successful contribution to the success of Expo 2015. Two of the leading groups worldwide in the organization and management of exhibitions and ancillary services are combining their professionalism and expertise. The organisers of Expo 2015 and all the official participants can now count on a partner that is first-in-class and active in all areas of the exhibition chain, thereby guaranteeing a service that is not only of the highest quality but one that is wide-reaching and capable of meeting all demands."
