With Expo 2020 Dubai only a few months away, there is a growing belief that the Universal Exhibition will be the first and most important international occasion for relaunching and promoting Italy’s productive system.

The latest news is that Umbria has confirmed its presence in the Italy Pavilion at the Expo along with its intention to form a strategic committee to assure the involvement of all interested subjects. This decision follows the one taken by Piedmont: with a competitiveness meeting between Regions and businesses held last week, President Cirio acknowledged Expo 2020 as a crucial stage in the programme for relaunching the region’s economy and tourism.
“In these same hours,” explained the Italian Commissioner, Paolo Glisenti, speaking during the television programme Omnibus on La7, “Italian materials travelling to the Arab Emirates, towards Dubai to build our pavilion and equip it from an engineering, electrical and digital perspective, are a sign of the energy our country is able to express”.
Meanwhile, works for the construction of the Italy Pavilion continue.
With seven months to go before the inauguration, the project is taking shape, as revealed by the videos shot inside the site.
