The Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Luigi Di Maio, and his Emirati counterpart, Abdullah bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, presented the Italy Pavilion for Expo 2020 Dubai in Matera.
Watch the following video for the highlights of the day.
The EXPO, the first Universal Exhibition to be held in an Arab country, will take place in Dubai from 20 October 2020 to 10 April 2021.
The Italy Pavilion, situated a short distance from the UAE Pavilion on the “cultural spine” of the Expo site, will afford a memorable immersive experience to the over 5 million visitors expected: it will cover an area of 3,500 square metres and reach a height of almost 27 metres.
The project is based on a circular approach to architecture, with three ship hulls converted into the roof of the exhibition area for the entire duration of the Expo.
