Milano Expo 2015
after 111 years back to Milan
The Expo 2015 will take place in Milan, Italy. The decision was taken by the BIE assembly in Paris, on March 31, 2008. Milan beat the other candidate city, Izmir, Turkey by 20 votes, 86 to 65.
Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” is the leading theme for the Milan Expo 2015.
Milan will use an area of almost 1,7 millions m2, northwest of the city center, in the municipalities of Rho and Pero. The actual fair complex, designed by architect Massimiliano Fuksas would connect to a 210 hectare area in Arese, next to the fair. Another idea currently under examination by the Region of Lombardy regards the creation of a technology park focussing on innovative healthcare and environmental solutions, with a particular focus on low-emissions public transport.
The specific location has produced an extremely rich and integrated infrastructure:
The metro Line 1 1 connects the site to the city's public transport network, the existing Molino Dorino parking facilities and a new car park planned at the Fairgrounds.
Three motorways - the A4 Turin-Milan-Venice, the A8/A9 Milan-Como Chiasso and Milan-Varese, plus the western orbital road which joins the A1 Milan-Rome-Naples motorway to the south. Access roads further supplement these routes, freeing local traffic from that in transit to and from the Expo site.
A high-speed rail link will have its own station near the east entrance to the complex as well as serving two local railway lines connecting to the Milan metro.
The site's geographical location, equidistant from Linate, Malpensa and Orio al Serio allowing rapid access to Milan's three airports.
