Updates PALAZZO ITALIA - ITALY PAVILION

The massive smog-eating building, called the Palazzo Italia, will mimic the function and appearance of trees while also supporting the expo’s theme of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.” The whole outdoor surface and partially the interiors will be made of biodynamic concrete panels, which seem marble on the eyes and to the touch, realized for 80% of reusable materials. In contact with the sunlight, the active principle of the material (‘Tx Active’), patented by Italcementi, allows catching some pollutants present in the air, thus contributing to free the atmosphere from smog. Dynamism is a typical feature of the new material, showing such a fluidity to allow the fulfilment of elaborate shapes such as those characterizing the panels of Palazzo Italia. In addition to its smog-eating facade, Palazzo Italia will boast a solar-panel rooftop that generates energy using photovoltaic glass.

It's a great innovative solution. I've found more info...

Quote:
The entire outdoor surface and part of the interiors will consist of i.active BIODYNAMIC cement panels, obtained using Styl-Comp technology from the new material developed at i.lab, the heart of Italcementi's research and innovation.

The product's name is a summary of its innovative characteristics. The “bio” component is given by the product's photocatalytic properties, originating from the active principle TX Active, patented by Italcementi. In direct sunlight, the active principle contained in the material “captures” certain pollutants present in the air and converts them into inert salts, helping to purify the atmosphere from smog. Additionally, the mortar is made from 80% recycled aggregates, part of which consist of scraps from the cutting of Carrara marble, and therefore provide a superior brilliance compared to traditional white cements. The “dynamic” component is a specific characteristic of the new material, whose particular fluidity allows the creation of complex shapes like those found in the Palazzo Italia panels. Thanks to its high workability, i.active BIODYNAMIC is able to penetrate in the frameworks, designed one by one and manufactured by Styl-Comp, and form the final design of the panel, ensuring an extraordinary surface quality.

«The 2015 Universal Exposition is a great opportunity for a general relaunch of Italy; it will be an occasion for our Country to showcase its excellence in a vast array of fields, from manufacturing to technology and science" said Diana Bracco, President of Expo 2015 and Commissioner for the Italian Pavilion. "Our Pavilion, inspired by the Vivaio Italia (Tree Nursery Italy) and Albero della Vita (Tree of Life) concept by Marco Balich, will be a window on the past, the present and the future of Italy. Innovation will be one of the key drivers of the Milan Expo. We want the Italian Pavilion to be an opportunity to showcase the innovation capabilities of our companies and to promote the development of sustainable products and eco-compatible technologies. An emblematic example of this will be Palazzo Italia, conceived as a landscape-like architecture where the building, through its structure and volume, takes on the appearance of a tree/forest into which visitors can plunge for a thrilling experience. The realization of this architectural narrative, designed by Nemesi & Partners in collaboration with Proger, BMS Progetti and Livio De Santoli, will be entrusted to Italian companies, like Italcementi, capable of meeting this challenge." As Diana Bracco remarked, "As home of the hosting country, Palazzo Italia will be the heart of the entire exhibition site, and the whiteness of its biodynamic cement branches will remain in the future as the icon of the 2015 Universal Exposition».

As the company that developed the transparent cement solution for the Italian pavilion at the Shanghai Expo 2010, Italcementi Group immediately seized the new challenge, relying on its 150 years experience in the world of construction materials. «From the silver medal at the 1867 Universal Exposition in Paris, through the international success of the Italian Pavilion, symbol of the Shanghai Expo 2010, to the new biodynamic cement that will characterize Palazzo Italia at the Milan Expo 2015: Italcementi is once again a key player in a Universal Exposition thanks to its innovative products "– said Carlo Pesenti, CEO of Italcementi Group. "By providing materials for the realization of the architectural and engineering quality that our Country is able to express, our performance and solutions have contributed to the creation of the symbol buildings of several Expos. From Paris to Shanghai to Milan, Italian research wins again».

Kazakhstan Pavilion.

In Kazakhstan, the ancestral connection between man and the environment is rooted in its traditional nomadic culture, characterized by a strong understanding of the environment, from the rational use of land and natural resources, and the vision of food as a gift to be offered and shared with others. This unique bond can be traced in its many traditions and customs and is reflected in its distinctive motto "such a large Country, of which we know so little." The Kazakh pavilion at Expo Milano 2015, occupying a total area of 2,396 square meters, aims to introduce visitors to the theme of protecting natural and agricultural resources, culture and the idea of sustainable development, which is where the Country is clearly headed. The interpretations of this gallery of themes populate the suggested route to visitors following thematic areas: "Welcome to Kazakhstan " (where visitors will be greeted by an introductory video), "Wheat" (where, through a dynamic diorama with its recreated typical landscape of fields of wheat, one of the most important natural resources for the country), "The management of water resources" (which, thanks to two large panoramic screens will present the major rivers and lakes stressing the importance of protecting biodiversity and fishing), "Products of Kazakhstan" (presenting visitors with the most characteristic produce, especially milk and horse meat and apples), "Astana Expo 2017" (a preview of some of the projects that the Exposition will be held in Astana in three years’ time on the theme "Future Energy").

500 global experts to discuss about the 'Charter of Milan'
Expo 2015 ideas: an opportunity to redraw the future of each nation


February 7 will be a day dedicated to the Expo of Ideas. It’s an event that will take place at Hangar Bicocca, and is being organized by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture together with Expo Milano 2015. Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is expected to participate and there will also be a video link with the former President of Brazil, Lula da Silva. Pope Francis will be offering his own extraordinary reflection on the right to food and the protection of the earth.

The meeting will be a dialogue of many voices and will focus on the key issues of the upcoming Universal Exhibition that are related to the theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. "It will be a day of intense work, the first of its kind," said Maurizio Martina, Minister of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies with responsibility for Expo 2015, in an interview published on ExpoNet, the magazine of Expo Milano 2015.

"There will be more than 40 thematic groups, in which over 500 experts will participate. We will have the task of examining all the exhibition themes, in particular in the following four areas of: development versus equity and sustainability; food culture, energy to live together; agriculture, food and health for a sustainable future; looking towards more humane cities: from “smart cities” to “slow cities”.

We will collect analyses and proposals on these topics for the drafting of the Charter of Milan, The Charter is an act of commitment that Italy will propose to the world through Expo Milano 2015."

The Expo of Ideas will lay the foundations for the Charter of Milan. The Charter is to be the great heritage and soul of this Universal Exposition. It’s a protocol that will feature, for the first time, citizens, institutions, companies, associations, academia and international organizations. All will sign the Charter, which will be delivered in October to the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, thus linking the six-month Expo to the Millennium Development Goals.
