Milan, April 19 - Three Italian architecture firms
have won the international competition to design the Italian
pavilion at Expo Milan 2015, organizers said Friday.
The winning proposals came from Rome-based Nemesi &
Partners, Pescara-based Proger and Milan-based Bms Progetti.
Italy's pavilion is the only structure intended to be
permanent and outlive the six-month event expected to draw 20
million visitors from around the world.
The area that will showcase Italian culture and goods has
already been conceptualized by Marco Balich, famous for
producing the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2006 Winter
Olympics in Turin.
His concept calls for a 12,766-square-meter building called
Palazzo Italia built outside the Milan city center on the Expo
fairgrounds, a 1.1-million-square-meter site where preparations
are already underway.
Palazzo Italia includes a 35-meter-wide boulevard that
stretches 325 meters, featuring a number of its own showcase
areas.
In addition to display areas, the pavilion will also
include conference halls, restaurants, bars and cooking
showrooms.
The entire design budget is 40 million euros.
