The Universal Exhibition Expo Milano 2015, which opens on May 1 and runs until October 31, has been conceived under the theme “Feeding the Planet; energy for life”. The Pavilion of Monaco, which stands out for its architectural originality, will offer the public a pedagogical and entertaining path articulated on the notions of sustainable development in terms of food, “good practices” for agriculture and food industries and international cooperation . A large place will also be given to the role of the oceans in the food of today and that of the future.
The artist Philippe Pastor will present, in the Monaco Pavilion, his Burned Trees sculptures, by which he expresses his concern about the deforestation and the degradation of the environment, and its consequences for human being.
Monaco Modern’Art Gallery Exhibition will remain open during the entire period of the 2015 Milan Exhibition. Organized through a careful scenography, it offers a great introduction and an invitation to visit the Monaco Pavilion in Milan. It will also be possible to find practical information on the Universal Exhibition, as well as information on the “second life” of the Monaco Pavilion: the Monegasque Red Cross, thanks to the support of many donors, has indeed programmed a major international cooperation, consisting of dismantling the Monaco Pavilion and reassembling it in Burkina Faso, where it will become a training center specifically focused on health care.
