Expo 2015 Milan
HOTEL COMO, LAKE COMO FOR MILANO EXPO 2015
Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life
Expo 2015 will be held in Milan from May 1 to October 31, 2015 with a main theme based on the idea that everyone on the planet should have access to food that is healthy, safe and sufficient. Expo 2015 will be an extraordinary universal event displaying tradition, creativity and innovation in the business of food. The Expo will be located on a 1.7 million sqm site north-west of Milan comprising part of the municipal territory of Pero and Rho. More than 20 million visitors from over 130 countries are expected to visit the Expo and some 2,000 events ranging from debates, congresses, conferences, cultural and gastronomic events will be held. Expo 2015 will include a series of correlated events in the neighbouring locations outside Milan including the lake districts of Como, Lugano, Maggiore and Varese, areas of outstanding natural beauty and cultural interest linked to the Expo experience through a sequence of parallel events such as those planned in the magnificent Villa Erba in Cernobbio.
As its aims demonstrate, this Expo - dedicated to food safety, security and quality- is intended to stimulate the regional and national economies and showcase Italy's - and Milan's - outstanding qualities when it comes to food. The quality of the Italian cuisine is well known and appreciated all over the world. Italian food is loved because it is healthy; it is authentic, because Italians' passion for the quality and taste of food, their regional cuisine and produce, the country's biodiversity and the health of its people and animals are all part of the Italian culture of living well. The Italian food industry (the nation's second largest) includes no fewer than 36,000 family firms and medium-sized companies, half a million workers, and an annual turnover of €100bn. This ingredient of Italian excellence stems from centuries spent honing farmers' skills, refining farmers production methods of farming and animal husbandry, as well as the choices of the food industry and trade system of distribution.
