Expo Gate, the first Infopoint of the Milan World Expo


Expo Gate is the winning project of the design competition for the Infopoint of Expo Milano 2015. To announce the winner's name, this afternoon at the Triennale in Milan, the mayor and Special Commissioner for Expo Milano 2015 Giuliano Pisapia, the president of the Triennale Claudio De Albertis and the CEO of the Expo 2015 Company Giuseppe Sala.

Appreciated for the harmony with which joins the monumental system of the Sforza Castle, Expo Gate, proposed by Scandurrastudio, will be the first “information center” of the Milan World Expo, access door to the opportunities and challenges posed by the theme “Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life”.

The Infopoint will be located in Largo Cairoli (via Beltrami), and it will be a meeting point and a place where hold happenings and find news on this important international event.

There were 25 architectural firms who participated at the contest for designing the temporary pavilion of the Infopoint 2015, open by Triennale Milano on behalf of the Expo 2015 Company. The proposals were evaluated by a jury composed by Claudio De Albertis, President of the Triennale di Milano, Alberto Artioli, Superintendent of the Architectural Heritage and Landscape, Ferruccio de Bortoli, director of the Corriere della Sera, Elio Fiorucci, Designer, Vittorio Gregotti, Architect Daniela Volpi, President Order of Architects of Milan, and Giuseppe Sala, CEO of Expo 2015 Company.


Jury statement

Light and transparent, the pavilions are inserted into the urban fabric in a discreet way transmitting a high symbolic value, respecting the visual telescope of Castello Sforzesco-Cordusio and rearranging public space in a vital way.

The construction system proposed , based on elementary technologies, is relatively simple and it is interesting both form the side of sustainability, economy and the speed of its implementation.

A formal and structural invention, a celebratory and representative artwork, because, as Gio Ponti wrote “The representativity must be alive, full of imagination, recognizable in the component parts of architecture. The representativity characterizes the construction carrying it with wisdom to the universal understanding, to that communication which is one of the terms of the existence of the art”.

fective, the communication skills of the device information are also evaluated.


Extract from the project report by Scandurrastudio

It is a place where counting the days before the opening of the World Expo is an opportunity to talk about growth and evolution. The calendar of events, the periodic change of space and facilities prelude to the vitality of Expo 2015.

The project proposes a plate open, characterized by a central square and two pavilions “Toolgates” to the side. A gateway to the Expo. Expo announces itself to the world, with a device that builds space and places, transformable and adaptable without it losing its strong identity.

The outside structures are designed to accommodate different types of communication, images, banners, flags, bright graphics can transform themselves periodically or build a temporality establishing differently over time. This device will be constantly changing, the functions inside the pavilions will be set giving a hierarchy to the spaces. At the center of the buildings, an empty space will be the place of more direct information. The work is intended to confirm the urban nineteenth century layout and recall in a clear manner the punctiform system of small monumental architecture starting around the Castle and the Sempione Park, which has always had an exhibiting vocation. The work aims to confirm the axial system of public spaces, that goes from the Cathedral through the passage between the Loggia dei Mercanti and the Palazzo della Ragione and then along Via Dante and leads to the Arco della Pace, in the path of the main road of the Sempione. A gateway to the Expo which is also is a physical and information place. The flexibility and transparency of the work identifies the possibility of new and more direct communications systems and equipment, two large sails screen will support continuous transmission of information in real time, the void at the center, the square supported by the buildings’ exterior and the open plan makes extremely adaptable the utilization of the proposed spaces. The activities hosted inside the pavilions are divided from the public space outside by windows which leave them visible.

A great communication machine, constantly in movement, which will be always lit by work and by images and information.

The work will be carried out according to the principles of lightness, transparency, modularity, features leading to pursue a language of large reticulated and aerial volumes. An aesthetic of lightness invoking Eiffel’s structures and the subsequent research on the expressiveness of the lightness not only from the forms but also in terms of environmental impact.

The Sultanate of Oman signs the participation contract of Expo Milano 2015


Today the Sultanate of Oman signed the participation contract of Expo Milano 2015, the next Universal Exposition, to be held in Milan, Italy, from May 1st to October 31st 2015, and which will focus on the theme “Feeding the planet, energy for life”.

Oman has reserved a 2,790 square metre space and its pavilion will be built in a strategic position within the exhibition site, in front of one of the main entrances of the Expo venue. The contract, which defines Oman’s commitment at the Universal Exposition, was signed by the Commissioner General of the Oman Pavilion, H.E. Mohsin Al Balushi, and by the CEO of Expo 2015 S.p.A., Giuseppe Sala. With this signature, Expo Milano 2015 has now signed 36 contracts, out of a total of 125 countries which have so far confirmed their participation.

The signing ceremony was attended by H.E. Ambassador Said Nasser Mansoor AL-Sinawi AL-Harthy, Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman to Italy, and by Roberto Formigoni, Commissioner General of Expo Milano 2015. The ceremony was preceded by a presentation regarding Oman’s interpretation of the Expo core theme “The Sultanate of Oman: Heritage in Harvest. Harnessing the Sun, Sand & Sea”.

The management and distribution of hydrological resources is a top priority in a water-scarce country. The Pavilion will be an opportunity to show the world Oman’s unique heritage, the "sustainable harvest" of the earth and of the sea, thus revealing a millennium of practices and traditions. Indeed, the Sultanate of Oman has a unique history in the sustainable management of its scarce water resources in a particularly challenging climatic area. This is thanks to its ancient and complex irrigation system, the falaj, a system of canals which has provided the Country with a reliable supply of water for centuries. Oman is also one of the forerunners in the development of artificial reefs which provide an undersea garden of biodiversity both for fishing and aquaculture.

"Expo Milano 2015 is a global event which is eagerly awaited by the entire world” said Mohsin Al Balushi, Commissioner General of Oman’s Pavilion. “The distinguishing element of this Expo is the theme, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, a theme which concerns all the inhabitants of the world. Moreover, Expo Milano 2015 will be hosted by Italy, a nation known for its hospitality, and with whom Oman has a deep rooted friendly relationship. We really look forward to participating in this important exhibition".

"The fascinating experience of the Sultanate of Oman, in the field of sustainable agriculture in arid areas, will represent a very interesting variation on the development of the theme Feeding the Planet: Energy for Life” said Giuseppe Sala, CEO of Expo 2015 S.p.A. “Each country is asked to share its knowledge in order to help solve the food and environmental emergencies which are afflicting the planet. It will be very interesting to visit Oman’s pavilion in which its commitment to the sustainable use of the sun, the sand and the sea, using both modern and ancient techniques, will be displayed”.

pavilion of dream terraces - Vietnam
image courtesy H&P architects

vietnam is one of the wet rice civilization’s cradles – the civilization that based on the cultivation on the terraces field to take shape.
 the wet rice civilization played the role of forming the community’s settlement and settled agriculture and immaterial culture achievement, which is the neighborhood culture.


the conceptualization for the vietnam pavillion for milano's 2015 expo by H&P architects mixes settled agriculture to create a sustainably functioning space. the building is conceived from steel structural frames (which have a numerous of modules – the longest being 7.5m) that are connected by simple joins or overlapping. the framing system is covered by salvaged wood to reduce the cost. the design has multiple functions: force resistance, planter, space for exhibits/furnishings, technical use – water, electricity supply and escape. the field covering the building helps condition the micro-climate, providing food for both interior and exterior.

VeronaFiere and Expo 2015: a partnership to enhance Italian wine in the Verona-Milan axis


Two years of events to promote the wine sector thanks to the roadshow “OperaWineExpo


This afternoon, during the 47th edition of Vinitaly, an important agreement protocol that will unite VeronaFiere and Expo 2015 in promoting and enhancing the excellence of Italian wine in the Verona-Milan axis was presented. The partnership will see the two organizations cooperate organizing exhibitions and events both before and during the Universal Exhibition to be held in Milan, from 1st May to 31st October 2015.

With today's announcement begins a promotion and cooperation path which will culminate in 2015 with the creation of “OperaWineExpo”, the most important wine event in the Expo Milano 2015 calendar.

Giuseppe Sala, CEO of the Expo 2015 Company, said: “The core of Expo Milano 2015 is the theme 'Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life ': a universal topic which has is ideal homeland in Italy, where the variety of products and the geographical and cultural wealth is closely linked to culinary traditions. Food and wine are the founding elements of our history and the highest expression of some of the messages of Expo Milano 2015: universality, inclusiveness and conviviality. The agreement provides a platform for spreading and sharing our common features to the international audience of Vinitaly and the 20 million visitors who will come and see the Universal Exhibition in Milan”.

Ettore Riello, President of VeronaFiere, said: “The agreement, which we are defining in detail, is founded on the basis of two fundamental factors: on one side the natural affinity between the Expo 2015 theme 'Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life' and the very strong vocation of VeronaFiere in the agricultural sector, which sees in Vinitaly one of the greatest expressions; on the other side, the deep conviction and knowledge of both parties that the World Expo is a great opportunity for the whole country, and every possible opportunity to promote and enhance it must be supported. Therefore, we must create synergies. In Expo 2015 we met very sensitive and proactive interlocutors in this regard, with great vision and managing ability, and we believe this represents a great value to the realization of an event of national interest such as this”.

Giovanni Mantovani, General Director of VeronaFiere, said: “This project will enhance not only the territory of Lombardy and Veneto, but the whole 'Made in Italy' in the context of the most important exhibition in the world, which we all have the duty to support. Veronafiere is an effective platform for international distribution and this agreement will see us involved in promoting everywhere this event, which will focus on Italy the world’s attention”.

By this agreement, VeronaFiere and the Expo 2015 Company will work together to define a detailed plan of promotion, starting with the 2014 edition of Vinitaly and OperaWine, then growing in visibility with the approaching of Expo Milano 2015. During the six-month of the World Expo the collaboration will culminate with the roadshow “OperaWineExpo”.

First the event will take place in Verona, from June 14th to September 6th, in the form of a permanent exhibition at the Palazzo della Gran Guardia. It will be set during the opera season at the Arena, to emphasize once more the deep link between wine and culture.

A rich calendar of permanent exhibitions and rotating thematic areas, tasting, show cooking and training programs on wine will animate “OperaWine Expo”, which promises to be a must-see event for all lovers of wine and, in a moment of highest tourists’ flow in Verona, it will be an important driving force for the Universal Exhibition.

The agreement protocol also requires to move “OperaWineExpo” to the capital of Lombardy in autumn, to close the calendar of Expo Milano 2015 with a Grand Tasting, attended by the best Italian wine producers and distinguished international guests. Another important element of quality to enrich the “Made in Italy” offer for the visitors of the Expo in Milan.
