Expo a victory for Italy says Renzi
Over 21 million have visited Milan Expo 2015
Food-themed world's fair closes today


Premier Matteo Renzi hailed the Expo world's fair as a victory for Italy. "Few thought a miracle was possible. But this country is strong, solid, authoritative. Ours is a brave Italy, that doesn't dodge its challenges, but faces them and wins them" he said. "Thanks Expo. Long live Milan, long live Italy". The premier thanked "the workers, the visitors, the organisers."

Six months after a highly-anticipated inauguration, the food-themed Milan Expo 2015 world's fair is wrapping up on Saturday. The event, which opened on May 1 under the banner 'Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life', has attracted a record 21 million visitors, well above the 20-million goal originally set by organizers. The number included six to seven million foreigners, approximately one-third of the total, who travelled to Italy's financial capital for the Universal Exposition, which focused on fighting world hunger, promoting food security and sustainable agriculture while celebrating worldwide culinary cultures.

Visitors have been steadily growing since the summer, organizers said. The total number of entrances in August alone was three million. Meanwhile September and October registered new peaks with 259,093 visitors on September 26 and a landmark 272,785 on October 10, the highest one-day total since Expo opened. The week running from October 5 through October 11 also attracted a record 1,243,701 in seven days.

"Milan and Italy are at the heart of all this, along with a new organizational system" combining public and private institutions, the world's fair sole commissioner and CEO Giuseppe Sala said on Thursday. And Expo's success was first and foremost "a success of the people", said Agriculture Minister Maurizio Martina. "The turning point was in people's feelings, which this experience was able to generate".

According to a preliminary survey on the event drafted by farmers' association Coldiretti, Italians spent a total of 2.3 billion euros at Expo and for Expo in expenses including travelling, accommodation, tickets and food.

Over 140 countries officially participated in the event, together with international organizations including the European Union and the United Nations. A record 54 single-nation pavilions were built at the massive Rho Pero location hosting Expo, 12 more than Shanghai at the last Universal Exposition in 2010. In addition, nine "cluster" pavilions represented over 70 countries in a totally new concept grouping them through a common category of food. Categories included rice, cocoa and chocolate, coffee, fruits and legumes, spices, cereals and tubers, as well as the Bio-Mediterranean, island and dry areas.

The world's fair has been visited by 60 heads of state and government, including British Premier David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, US First Lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Spanish Premier Mariano Rajoy. Institutional visits were over 300, organizers said. Celebrities who had an active role in the event included designer Giorgio Armani, a special fashion ambassador for Expo who opened the fair with an exclusive fashion show of his Privé couture line on the evening of April 30. Also, Bono Vox, an activist and lead singer for Dublin-based rock group U2, on September 6 joined Premier Matteo Renzi and the director of the World Food Program, Ertharin Cousin, for an event co-hosted by Ireland and Italy focusing on world hunger. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited on October 16, the United Nations World Food Day.

Agriculture Minister Maurizio Martina gave Ban Ki-moon the Milan Charter, the crowning moment of the six-month event. The Charter, a global food practices initiative framed at the world's fair and considered its legacy, has been signed by 1.1 million people including institutions, governments and citizens. It was drafted to commit individuals, associations and companies that sign it to take responsibility through their actions and policies, while requesting governments and international institutions to implement rules and policies that ensure a fairer and more sustainable future across continents. And in a first in the history of Universal Expositions, the African continent was represented by 39 countries - about one-third of participants. African countries with their own pavilion included Angola, Morocco and Sudan while 36 others were represented in the clusters.

Over the course of six months, hundreds of school trips were also organized from all over Italy. A total of two million students visited Expo with educational programs tailored for them on agriculture and agri-food as well as on the fight against world hunger and food waste. "I think that, without exaggerating, we can talk about an Expo generation", Sala said this week.

As Expo 2015 closed, the expo site will turn in a new important area for Milan: city of science, hi-tech center or university/start-ups valley. But what is the future of the national pavilions? Some will be recycled or reused, other demolished. Here some stories.

The silos of the Switzerland pavilion will be relocated in the Swiss cantons as urban greenhouses. The Bahrain's botanical garden will return in the Arab country, while the oasis of the UAE pavilion in Masdar City. In Baku, a biodiversity center is created with the Azerbaijan pavilion. And the English pavilion? It will become a urban sculpture in the UK.


The Save the Children village will be relocated in the refugee camp of Jarahieh, Lebanon. Monaco has decided to create a Red Cross Center in Burkina Faso. A new infant school will take shape in Cameroon with The Kinder & Ferrero pavilion. The wood of the "seeds" of the Malaysian pavilion will be sold at auction. A future construction will be created thanks to the structure of the Colombian pavilion. The 12,000 plants of the Austrian pavilion will continue to live in Bolzano. The Coca Cola pavilion will remain in Milan to host a basketball center.


The Tree of Life, Palazzo Italia, Padiglione Zero, Cascina Triulza, the Mediterranean Hill, the Open-air Theatre will remain on the Expo site. Others buildings like the Israeli pavilion or The Waterstone could be relocated in other areas in Milan for a different use.

Id have to say it was well worth a visit, well planned and laid out, easy transportation and plenty of food outlets but the canopy didn't do well with heavy downpour!

DOSSIER: the "Human Technopole"

Italian Government presents a very ambitious project to make Milan a scientific center. The post-Expo plan includes the socalled project "Human Technopole": ie the creation of an international research and applied technology center dedicated not only to the theme of Expo 2015 "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life", but also to the skills that help humanity in two fields: how to live a high quality life, increase the life expectancy. see more

Govt ready to invest 1.5bn euros in Expo research center


November 10 - Premier Matteo Renzi said Tuesday the government is ready to invest 150 million euros a year over the next decade to turn part of the Expo world fair site into a scientific research center. The site should become "a world-class center for genomics and big data research". "We must get started right away in order to impart a sense of the mission," he said. "The Expo area must not become an area of regret".
