China seeds for the new Italy
Milan is proud to have picked up the baton from this large Asian city, Shanghai,â€ said Giuliano Pisapia, mayor of the Italian city, in his opening remarks at the ceremony â€œFrom Shanghai to Milanâ€ on the 22nd of November. The event was held at the Shanghai Italian Center, the former Italian pavilion during Expo 2010 in Shanghai, which reopened in May 2012 as a showcase for â€œMade in Italyâ€ and a symbol of cooperation and friendship between Italy and China. â€œ(Chinese, nda) companiesâ€™ investments,â€ â€“ Pisapia said, â€confirm their interest for Expo 2015, in which China strongly believes, as I found out in all the meetings of these days.â€
Pisapiaâ€™s speech was followed by the prestigious presentation of Alexander Pereira, the new governor of La Scala Theatre. The celebration represented the handover from the Universal Exhibition of Shanghai 2010 to the 2015 edition that will take place in Milan. The high point of the ceremony came just before the end, with the signing of the contract for the participation of more than 20 Chinese companies in Expo 2015. General Consul of Italy and Expo SPAâ€™s delegate, Vincenzo De Luca, together with Richard Wei, Director of Corporate Pavilion, were also present.
Theme of Chinaâ€™s pavilion for Expo 2015 will be â€œChina Seeds:â€ its intention is to represent, in a concrete way, the long-standing Chinese wisdom regarding food and environmental problems. Companies that are active in the energy sector and the food industry will present their experiences. The entire project is inspired by the philosophy of the harmonious coexistence with nature, one of the basic principles of Chinese cultural tradition.
Milanâ€™s Expo aims to carry out this important Chinese thought by conferring a special importance on the theme of sustainable development. Taking inspiration from the title of the 2010 exhibition, â€œBetter City, Better Life,â€ the new one will be â€œFeeding the Planet, Energy for Lifeâ€.
Italy is working hard to get ready to host this important international appointment. A growing number of hotels and facilities is upgrading its services and facilities to accommodate the huge number of Chinese tourists that are expected to attend so that they will be able to meet their specific needs
