#OneDayExpo would be the very correct hashtag for this article, seen that all the pictures and adventures you’re gonna read have passed in one only Saturday.
Let’s start from the morning, 12pm at Rho station, where Expo is located: go there with your very old friends is one of the coolest things you can do. The younger you are, the most you can enjoy music at nightime; the more adult you are, the more you can enjoy pavilions walks and nice aperitivos with mixed food from all around the world. Guess in which category are my friends and me 😁 ?!
Let’s begin – it’s gonna be a very long storytelling
Guess where are from?!
Japan – Korea – Sri Lanka – Italy – UK, everybody in the same line 🇯🇵🇰🇷🇮🇳🇮🇹🇬🇧
Its aim was to show the harmony of food, how a part ofthe world should not been overfed and how to eat:
Here it follows a series of projections about fruits and food mixing sorrounded by a perfect ideal sound (you should live this immersive experience!)

American Pavilion 2.0 – actually I didn’t go inside, I just saw it was based on trucks and US main brands about food, as you can see here:
At night, instead, projections were very impressive, with colorful lights projected on waterfalls coming from the flag and watering plants…

It has been inspired by the Campidoglio in Rome,starting from a oval-shape with a 12 pointed-star that symbolize the constellation:
Now, let’s see one of the top innovative Country of this Expo: Israeli. Its vertical grain and corn fields are shown all around the pavilion – walls are completely covered by these cultivations. It has a very low environmental impact and it’s one of the new evolutive trend in the agricultural fields in the world!
On the roof you can see all the basic activities for human being and resources fo the French land, from phishing to lavender, wines, cheese…
Now it’s on South America:
It was a damage to not have the chance to go inside these wonderful sails named Kuwait
Here’s Qatar: parts of The pavilion representing The Jefeer, ora typical food container made by palm leaves:
And finally, let’s end with colore and seeds, the Japanese ones:
Here it ends the #oneDayExpoMilan2015, too short to visit everything, fair enough to have a look around and think a little bit about the gap among the different countries, the gap you can taste just by considering how the pavilions look different, how smart they are, how they use specific materials trying to avoide the waste of time, resources, energy, food. Because there are countries, people, who cannot. #FeedingThePlanet #EnergyForLife
