My Expo experience (part II)

And finally we arrived to Rho Fiera, went through turnstiles…walked a rather long way and…Voilà! The first pavilion:

Inside it you find yourself lost in nature and evolution …agriculture, animals…but also traditions and waste of food. A kind of journey from the past until today.

Chicago nella prima metà del ‘900. Centro finanziario.

Above a plastic of my beautiful Chicago (I dream about it every day!!!) that shows the windy city as a financial centre in the first half of 1900.

In a day it’s pretty impossible to visit every pavilion…it’s for that reason that in this page you can find just a resume about Expo!

I liked very much the Brazilian pavilion, it was so funny to walk on that mesh to get inside it;

At ground floor I could taste the typical Brazilian coffee (for me it’s a long coffee) and some cheese balls that (for what I understood) are a kind of typical bread! very good 😉 and very kind and funny people:

Persone simpatiche :)

Of course one of my first thought was looking for the Italian pavilion and here it is:

Padiglione Italia

The day I went there, there was the visit of Matteo Renzi (President of the Council of Ministers of Italy) and Vladimir Putin (Russian President) … so you can imagine how many people were there for the event!

Anyway I was fascinated by the pavilion architecture even if building it was so expensive!

Non poteva mancare la regina pizza!

Mmm…an original Italian pizza please!

The famous Italian car, Fiat 500… and behind it a curious pavilion. Inside it I saw a sort of virtual animal that you could bring to watch a short film!

Dentro il padiglione si possono osservare piccoli animali virtuali che una volta 'presi' con la mano e portati verso su danno il via a vari tipi di filmati! :)

So much walk made us hungry… sooo we stopped at Let’s toast:

Let's toast è un format sperimentale dove abbiam gustato dei buonissimi sandwich tostati...a mio parere si mangia bene...inoltre prezzi che (per la media Expo) non sono elevati...anzi ;) niente male!

After a good lunch it cannot miss a good glass of wine… so voilà a pavilion dedicated to wine:

Yet another one: USA pavilion… USA, my dream ever

And to finish Calabria’s designated position, and the Sicilian one…with some good agriculture products and beautiful local crafts:

So I think that aside from polemics, Expo is a wonderful experience and I recommend everybody to go to visit it!

Byeeeee 😉

  1. Eh si! Una bella esperienza anche se io, purtroppo, non sono riuscita a vedere alcuni padiglioni, ma d’altronde in un giorno non potevo pretendere molto. Comunque le architetture veramente belle… Ben studiate per coinvolgere il visitatore al 100% 😉
