The Tree of Life is a sort of symbol and it is part of the Italian pavilion. But there are different good pavilions, in line with the Expo 2015 theme.

Among other things, Milan has introduced a new formula called "Expo in the city". The 'magic' of Expo 2015 was not only at the Expo site, but around the city center: thousands of additional exhibitions/events linked to the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" have been celebrated (since the 1st May 2015) inside museums, galleries, palaces... An example was the art exhibition at La Triennale Museum: "Art & Foods - Rituals since 1851". The BIE has asked to copy this idea... so cities that will host the next universal exhibitions can do something like that.

From the “Opening” of Palazzo Italia to the international market:
biodynamic cement is now a global product


A beautiful cement to see and touch. A sustainable, durable, resistant material which has great visual quality and is ready to be used in
architecturally prestigious works such as Palazzo Italia at Expo 2015. Italcementi’s research and innovation skills have led to conceive a new material for sustainable architecture: i.active BIODYNAMIC. A unique product in its properties and features, which is now ready for the market.

Italcementi presented its new cement mortar during a global event that took place today in the auditorium of Palazzo Italia with the participation of delegations from four continents. Many representatives of the building community have come to Milan to get to know this product, find out about its features and see its first experimental application: the outstanding external structure and the internal façades of Palazzo Italia, designed by Nemesi & Partners to become the iconic place of Expo 2015 Milan.

«From the silver medal at 1876 Expo in Paris, through to the international success of the Italian Pavilion in transparent cement, the symbol of Expo Shanghai 2010, to the new biodynamic cement that characterizes Palazzo Italia in Expo Milano 2015: Universal Exhibitions have been historically connected to Italcementi based on innovation – said Carlo Pesenti, CEO of Italcementi -. Also a “traditional” industry like that of building materials can renew and offer new opportunities to the building community. Our research projects lead to performances and solutions thanks to which the ideas of architects and engineers can take shape and create very beautiful buildings, like Palazzo Italia».

«Palazzo Italia stems from a concept of natural architecture, making it a landscape – explained Susanna Tradati, designer of Palazzo Italia together with Michele Molé and studio Nemesi & Partners -. A petrified forest, whose complexity has been made possible by the plasticity of biodynamic cement. Italcementi is the first company that, instead of putting up “boundaries” to our work as architects, encouraged us to go further, to overcome the limitations in design often placed by traditional materials. The success of Palazzo Italia is also due to this new, extraordinary cement».

The result of this coming together of product innovation and architecture is a creation that is bringing glory to Italy as a whole. «I remember the looks of amazement on many people’s faces, from the very first days of Expo, in front of the immaculate white, the complexity and the massiveness of Palazzo Italia – said Diana Bracco, President of Expo and General Commissioner of the Italian Pavilion -. I found the same astonishment on the faces of heads of government, ministers and businesspeople when they were told that this material, so beautiful to see, is cement. You do not expect this to be cement, yet this is what it is. And it is the result of Italian research, used by Italian architects to build “the home of Italy” at Expo. A team that is winning the Expo challenge».

I would say USA pavilion was by far the best. We did not see a Canadian pavilion. Thai was the funniest - it showed a video on how great their king was.

Overall, I was thinking the expo to be something else, but when we were they, I felt like I was in Epcot.
