This is only the latest one of a series of Expos, which has been held from 1851, year of the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace of London strongly wanted by Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, to present the latest inventions and improvement in the technological field. Undoubtedly, the most famous Exhibit is the 1889’s, when France ruled by Napoleon III, celebrating the centenary of the Storming of the Bastille, decided to finance an exhibit in order to celebrate the improvement of technology. The most important symbol of this event of course the Eiffel Tower of the famous architect Gustave Eiffel (that later on will also build the internal structure of the Liberty Statue).
The Expo during the decades has become the manifesto of innovations in technology, in arts, and in the general science of knowledge, and this year it will be hosted in the beautiful city of Milan, one of the most relevant cities during the Renaissance thanks to the prestige of the noble Sforza family. For six months Milan will coordinate 144 different countries, 20 regions, 16 organizations and 4 companies, and 20 million people are expected to participate at this huge event. Expo’s main topic is “Nourishing the Planet – Energy for Life” and wants to include everything that concerns nutrition and food, from the lack of food in some areas of the world, to food education, and the GMO products.
