france looks a bit poor without the vines climbing between the boards of the structure, as seen in the renderings.
Hopefully they'll work on it later

-1 day: Italy is pleased to welcome the world
Milan Touts Da Vinci to La Scala as Record World Expo Starts


The 2015 World Expo in Milan, starts Friday and the Italian business capital is touting its world-famous treasures, including Leonardo Da Vinci’s works, to capitalize on more than 20 million expected visitors.

“Expo will be the first event post crisis,” Milan’s mayor Giuliano Pisapia said in an interview in the 16th-century Palazzo Marino city hall. “Milan and Italy have undiscovered jewels. Expo visitors won’t just come to visit the exhibition but will spread all over the country.”

With 10 million tickets sold before the kick-off, including 5 million abroad, the six-month event with the theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,” is already on course for a record. More than 140 countries will participate, with an unprecedented 54 pavilions designed by architects including Norman Foster and Daniel Libeskind in a 1.1-million square-meter area just outside Milan city center.

Milan is touting symbols such as La Scala and artists Da Vinci and Michelangelo to lengthen the period tourists stay to three to four days, Pisapia said. More than 100 works of engineer and inventor Da Vinci have been gathered in a recently opened exhibition at Palazzo Reale, while Michelangelo’s Pieta Rondanini will be showcased in a fresh setting inside the Sforza Castle, starting May 2. La Scala opera house will be open every day during the six months with a special program dedicated to Expo 2015.

The event will add as many as 90,000 jobs throughout the city thanks to about 2.5 billion euros of public and private investment, with China and the United Arab Emirates, whose pavilion was designed by Norman Foster, among top investors. The Expo could serve as a first step for some foreign companies and countries to invest more at a later stage, said Pisapia, 65, a lawyer turned politician in 2011. Real-estate company China Vanke Co. Ltd has invested 30 million euros in a pavilion designed by Libeskind and plans to open an office in Milan.

The Expo will host countries, companies and non-governmental organizations. For the first time it will add nine thematic clusters, which will also host countries who couldn’t afford a self-built solution. Concepts of the exhibitions will be food sustainability, waste reduction and technology in agriculture.

Switzerland’s pavilion, for instance, will focus on food sustainability and individual responsibility, with four towers filled with Swiss products that gradually deplete, encouraging visitors to consume responsibly. Visitors will experience the supermarket of the future at the Future Food District, a computerized warehouse where consumers order food, fully aware of the supply chain. The project was designed by Carlo Ratti, director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Senseable City Lab.

Pisapia, who inherited the Expo from his predecessor Letizia Moratti, and has dedicated most of the past four years to recoup delays, is counting on a network of about 40 mayors, including New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio, to support the exhibition and its values. The cities will sign an agreement on Oct. 16 World Food Day to share goals like fighting food waste. He’s also hoping Michelle Obama will attend the event, while a network of Expo ambassadors including fashion designer Giorgio Armani and opera singer Andrea Bocelli, who will sing at the Expo inauguration night, will help market the fair.

Nepal pavilion

Nepalese craftsmen, due to the earthquake, had to come back home.
Many workers from other nations completed it, working for free

they are 800 and they have 16-17 years. Better not to talk too much about them.

ah, this Universal Exposition is probably the less expensive ever, but, as you can see from the pictures, the result is really good.
