Leonardo's Vitruvian Man, on show during Milan Expo


Leonardo da Vinci's celebrated drawing titled Vitruvian Man will be on display in Milan for a month during the Expo world's fair to be held next year, sources said Tuesday. The iconic pen and ink drawing on paper - which in Italian is titled The Proportions of the Human Body according to Vitruvius - depicts a nude male body in two superimposed positions inscribed in a circle and a square. Created circa 1490, the drawing has been housed in the Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice since 1822. Like most works on paper, it is only occasionally put on public display, but curators green-lit its one-month exhibition honouring the Renaissance genius of Leonardo in Milan's Royal Palace next summer.

6.5 mln Milan Expo 2015 tickets sold

Expo 2015 Commissioner Giuseppe Sala said Wednesday that more than six million tickets have already been sold for next year's world fair that begins in May. "We have already sold six and half million tickets around the world," Sala said. That brings the total closer to the target set by Premier Matteo Renzi of selling 10 million tickets for the six-month event before it kicks off on May 1, 2015. That also is good news for tourism throughout Italy, said Sala. "One million (tickets) have been bought by the Chinese and they will come to visit Expo, but clearly to also tour the country", Sala said.

A record-breaking 53 countries have pavilions under construction or approved to be built for Expo 2015, with the Netherlands the latest to announce its Expo participation. It will join more than 140 entities taking part of the event under the theme Feed the planet, energy for life. The previous edition of the world's fair, held in Shanghai in 2010, had 42 single-nation pavilions. Sala said that "these are all the signs that the world is very attentive to (Milan's) Expo".

That means Italy is preparing carefully to be scrutinized by the rest of the world with Expo organizers hoping to attract as many as 20 million visitors. For those who want to see a much more in-depth look at Italy's land, they can look forward to the special production "Experia. Travel in Italy at the Expo". This is a multi-platform, cross-media production by proponents of Italian Expo Pavilion 2015, RAI Expo, and Milan's Polytecnico University. Experia is a dynamic storytelling project to provide significant information about Italy, its history, its successes and critiques all via different media platforms as well as a series of events within Expo.

Expo Milano 2015 is the first Universal Exposition with a Certification for Sustainability

Expo 2015 has obtained the certification of conformity to the international standard ISO 20121: 2012 of the Management System for Event Sustainability. The award includes the activities of planning actions that affect the organization of the Universal Exposition. The certification was issued to the company Expo 2015 by the of third party certification entity DNV GL, a leading global provider of services for classification, certification, verification and training, DNV GL enables organizations to enhance the security and sustainability of its activities.

For Expo Milano 2015 sustainability is a central element, an underlying value for the event from its theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, to its perspective of a sustainable future of the planet and society. It is the first organization of a Universal Exposition and the second major event of international importance, after the London Olympics of 2012, to have developed a formalized and recognizable system for analysis and management of sustainability issues.

"Expo Milano 2015 - said the CEO of Expo 2015 Giuseppe Sala – wants to promote an international, educational, cultural and sharing experience for all its guests and participants, promoting dialogue between the different citizens of the planet and helping to strengthen cooperation among populations. We are working to ensure that what will open in a few months will be the first Universal Exposition to use tools that can help us to better manage our environmental, social and economic issues.”

“Sustainable management of an event - added Nicola Privato , Regional Manager South Europe DNV GL - Business Assurance is a major challenge in which the Company Expo 2015 has decided to solidify in front of a global audience. The result demonstrates the commitment of all the people who have actively participated in the project, and have become the protagonists of a forward-looking and concrete approach that sees sustainability as a key point for the success of this important event."
