Expo to nourish the mind with art
Shows include Leonardo, Giotto, modernist sculptors, dinosaurs


With 100 days to go the beginning of Expo 2015, all eyes tend to remain focused on the major infrastructure aspects of the project (and whether or not everything will be ready on time). But there is another aspect, which has been quietly developed out of the limelight: a rich calendar of cultural events, organized by the city together with the chamber of commerce, that will take place during the six-month Expo period, which begins May 1.

During a press conference Tuesday in Milan's Palazzo Reale - one of the Lombard capital's leading exhibit venues - Mayor Giuliano Pisapia and Cultural Affairs Councilor Filippo Del Corno unveiled an eclectic program including exhibits on powerhouses like Leonardo da Vinci and Giotto, as well as on modernist sculptors, food, photography and even dinosaurs.

In opening remarks, Pisapia said the calendar was an example "of the passion that culture and art can generate in our city." Throughout the Expo period, with theses events, "Milan speaks to the world. Our message of culture goes in the direction of rendering Milan ever more international." According to the mayor, some 20,000 events will be held in Milan over the Expo period.

Pisapia pointed out that a strong cultural calendar is a key driver in the city's attractiveness to residents and tourists alike. Art and cultural events in 2014 helped bring in 500,000 more visitors than in 2013, Pisapia said, adding that an exhibit on Italian painter Giovanni Segantini, which ended January 18, alone had some 200,000 visits. "2015 is the year in which the world will be in Milan and Milan will be in the world, which is what the first two exhibits are essentially about," said Dal Corno, presenting the details of the events calendar.

"Mondi a Milano" ("The world comes to Milan", March 26-July 19) and "Africa" (March 26-August 30) are both concerned with Milan's relationship with the outside world. "Mondi a Milano," which will inaugurate the city's new Museum of Cultures, is about Milan's contact and dialog with Africa and the Orient, as experienced through previous Expos (the city hosted the event three times, in 1881, 1894 and 1906). "Africa", instead, will help visitors get a better understanding of that continent's cultural heritage through 200 pieces that document the evolution of its art from the middle ages to the present.

The exhibits on Da Vinci and Giotto (whose full name was Giotto di Bondone) seek to shed new light on what are two of the world's most famous artists. "Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519" (April 15-July 19 at Palazzo Reale), is "the largest exhibit dedicated to Leonardo ever realized in Italy," with pieces, designs and paintings on loan from international powerhouses like the Louvre and the Albert & Victoria museum, organizers said at the press conference. "Giotto, l'Italia. Da Assisi a Milano" ("Giotto and Italy. From Assisi to Milan") follows the master's works and travels throughout Italy, ending with his final creation, "Gloria del Mondo", realized in Milan. "These are two figures who are well known throughout the world but who are both still open to much research...Both found in Milan a fertile place for their creativity," Dal Corno said.

Milan's role as creative hub is, in fact, the theme of another one of the program's key exhibits: "Arte lombarda dai Visconti agli Sforza: Milano al centro dell'Europa" ("Lombard art from the Visconti to the Sforza: Milan at the center of Europe"), which runs March 12-June 28, in Palazzo Reale. But, as Pisapia and Dal Corno pointed out in their introductory remarks, the calendar is rich with exhibits also on sculptors, including Italy's Medardo Rosso, photography, with an exhibit on Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, food (which is the theme of Expo itself) and even the dinosaurs: a dedicated exhibit at Milan's Natural History Museum, running from June through December, will focus on the international effort - including participation by the museum's staff - to reconstruct the skeleton of Spinosaurus, the largest predatory dinosaur to have existed. With such a rich cultural events calendar, perhaps Expo's tagline "Feeding the planet, energy for life" should be extended to include "and nourishment for the mind."

Turkey pavilion



The pavilion shall be a single building on the 2898 sq.meter plot, allowing 30 percent of that area to be used as an open space as dictated by the EXPO 2015 rules. The roof of the exhibition hall made in the form of the skirt, which is used for the traditional ritual turkish dance “Sema”. Thus, the Turkish pavilion will have its own feature and will stand out. The material for the roof is metal. For walls were used a glass to interest visitors from the outside, and also visually make Pavilion airy.

The open space shall avoid visitor queues, and at the same time provide an area to set up kiosks of Turkish “Street Food” . The pavilion shall be a two storey construction . The first floor will demonstrate the gradual evolution of culinary multiculture of Turkey, together with agricultural techniques first applied in Anatolia. Second floor will host a Turkish Restaurant where visitors may taste many original Turkish food. Remaining space shall be used to accommodate a VIP room, a gift shop, offices and a store room.

The pavilion will feature screens for introductory movies regarding the main theme of Turkish Pavilion, “Digging into history for future food” depicting stories of invention and development of farming equipments, changes in diet of local people living in Turkey. There will also be touch screen kiosks containing information regarding Turkey, agriculture and food culture in Turkey, local recipes, endemic plant lists and information regarding cultural activities and tourism. All the exhibits will include QR codes, with which the visitors can use their smartphones/tablet PCs to receive and download further information regarding the exhibits via mobile programs of the pavilion.

The pavilion is planned to have interactive floor and wall projectors, with which the visitors play games, interact with the exhibits, post their experiences and pictures to the internet site of the pavilion, participating in sweepstakes and polls. The pavilion will also feature transparent LCD screens with animations, combining antique tools of farming with modern day animation technology. There will also be a performance stage inside the pavilion, where cultural activities and live performances will be presented.
