Expo 2015. From May 3rd to 18th 2015, a monumental apple sculpture by artist Michelangelo Pistoletto will enhance Piazza del Duomo in Milan. This powerful visual and emotional work is part of Pistoletto's Third Paradise project and, following the exhibition in Piazza del Duomo, the work will be donated by Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto to the city of Milano and will be placed permanently in Piazza Duca D'Aosta.

Italy pavilion, Tree of Life and Lake Arena, Pavilion Zero, Open Air Theatre, Biomediterranean Hill, Children Park... will remain for sure.
About national pavilions: some will be removed or transferred to their origin countries, others will remain in Milan.
The expo site could become a new hub for research or a sports village. There are other proposals, but a decision has not been taken yet.

These are great news. I loved watching the Tree of Life on video, let alone on real life. I thought they would keep only the Palazzo Italia at the end...
