Expo's symbolic Tree of Life will not be moved after the world's fair closes on October 31, said Expo Commissioner and CEO Giuseppe Sala on Wednesday. The Tree of Life is a sculpture and interactive installation that has served as the centrepiece for the Italian Pavilion at Expo. Sala said the structure, which is equipped to perform light shows and special effects, has "very delicate technology" and that it would be more complex to take it down and put it back up somewhere else.


"During the months of construction site work and dismantling the exposition site we'll be careful to keep it active and to provide maintenance," Sala said. Sala said Expo dismantling would be finished prior to May, but the goal is for Palazzo Italia and Pavilion Zero to be closed off during dismantling work and then reopened in the spring. "It's within our intentions, but we have to work on it," Sala said, adding that Palazzo Italia would remain unchanged, preserving its current interior exhibit.

That's not hard when you don't cap daily visitors, and you let them enter two or three times the maximum safe number for an area designed for 100,000 visitors a day.

the area is designed for 250,000 visitors a day, it's about 1/5 of the exposition area of Shanghai 2010, where in the last two months they had almost a million people all together every day.
In Milan we have reached the maximum amount of visitors only in the last month and partially in september, actually it's a problem especially in the weekends (saturday) but during the week numbers of visitors are around 150,000-180,000 people.

I find the rendering good. Seems to be a very nice, interesting EXPO. . I am really fond of Botanical Gardens. When I went to Singapore as a Tourist, I visited the Singapore Botanical Gardens and I tell you all its really a great place. You can see plants from different regions of earth in one, single place ,plants you have never heard of. I would like to visit Milan someday. It is a Beautiful city (Most cities of Italy are Beautiful actually). Is this EXPO already started?
