EXPO 2015 - Milano







Expo Milano 2015 is a non-commercial Universal Exposition with some very unique and innovative features. Not only is it an exhibition but also a process, with a large number of players actively involved in developing and discussing scenarios around the fair's theme: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. Expo Milano 2015 is sustainable, technological, thematic and focused on its visitors.

Open from May 1st to October 31st, 2015, the Expo will host over 130 participants. Running for 184 days, this giant exhibition site, covering one million square meters, is expected to welcome over 20 million visitors.


A Journey of Taste

Visitors will experience a unique journey through the challenging themes of food and nutrition. They will have the possibility to take a trip around the world, discovering the food and traditions of people from all over the globe. Expo Milano 2015 will be the first world fair in history to be remembered not only for its products but also for its contribution towards education on food and the planet’s precious resources.


The Theme

Having selected Milan as the city to host the Universal Exposition, Italy also chose Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life as its central theme. Expo Milano 2015 will talk about the problems of nutrition and the resources of our planet. The idea is to open up a dialogue between international players to exchange views on these major challenges which are relevant to everyone.

Expo Milano 2015 seeks to involve participants and visitors in actively finding innovative solutions through discussion and an exchange of ideas and opinions. The central theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life involves five main Themed Routes that connect the spaces within the exhibition site. Each of these Thematic Routes offers different interpretations of the Expo Milano 2015 central theme and can be tailored according to visitors' interests.

The theme chosen for the 2015 Milan Universal Exposition is Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. This embraces technology, innovation, culture, traditions and creativity and how they relate to food and nutrition. Expo 2015 will further develop themes introduced in earlier Expos (e.g., Water at Expo 2008 in Zaragoza) in the light of new global scenarios and emerging issues, with a principal focus on the right to healthy, secure and sufficient food for all the world’s inhabitants.

The area that will be occupied by the Expo 2015 site is located northwest of Milan in the municipalities of Rho and Pero, and covers an area of 1.1 km2 (0.42 sq mi). It is adjacent to the new Fiera Milano fairgrounds, designed by Massimiliano Fuksas, whose project may be considered the cornerstone of the urban redevelopment of the entire area. The zone had long been an industrial area before being converted to logistical and municipal services and agriculture. The fairgrounds and the Expo site will be connected by a pedestrian bridge adjacent to the Rho-Pero high-speed rail station.


Expo Milano 2015 starring the Countries from all over the world who have been invited to interpret the theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. Food, a vital part of daily life for the entire world’s population and capable of uniting people of different cultures and religions, also brings with it profound concerns. Each Country, coming from their own culture and traditions, is called to question and offer solutions to the major challenges related to the future of food. Participating Countries express the meaning and content of their presence at ExpoMilano 2015 through a themed concept and have the opportunity to choose between two modes of participation: by building their own exhibition space (Self-Built Pavilions) or by choosing their own space inside one of the nine Thematic Clusters.

The Exposition Site of Expo Milano 2015 is thus transformed into a mosaic of countries committed to creating awareness amongst the visitors around a theme that is crucial for future generations, making them part of a global project never seen before. 184 unique and unrepeatable days of culture and science, innovation and tradition, sustainability and solidarity in which you can find over a hundred national cuisines each with their own tastes, scents and colors.

How to Reach the Expo Site


The Exposition Site of Expo Milano 2015 is a few kilometers from the center of Milan, in an area directly connected by three main city airports and by principal public transport lines. The Site is easily accessible by international and local travelers alike through a highly connected transportation system.
• The underground metro: Linea 1 connects the central city network system with two car parks at the Molino Dorino and Fiera metro stations.   

• Three main highways are connected to the Expo: the A4 Turin-Milan-Venice, the A8/A9 Milan-Como-Chiasso and the Milan-Varese; as well as the ring-road (Tangenziale Ovest) that joins the A1 motorway connecting Milan to Rome and Naples.

• The road system is purpose-built for the exposition and should free local roads from traffic going directly to the exposition site.

• Train system: the new Expo railway station will be built at the west side of the Exposition Site and will connect regional railway lines to Milan’s underground metro lines.

• Equidistant from the exposition site are international, well connected airports Linate, Malpensa and Orio al Serio.
