Milan (Italy). I finally had the opportunity of visiting Expo Milano 2015, the Universal Exhibition hosted in Milan from May 1 to October 31, 2015.
Unfortunately, as expected, the queues were too long and it was impossible to visit more than five or six pavilions in a day. The waiting time to see Brasil, Japan or Italy was more than three hours, and I found it very frustrating.
Therefore, I decided to take some photos: I brought my Leica with me and it was a nice exercise. Some pavilions (Russia and Germany, for example) have a terrace which offers a decent view over the exposition area.
Here are some samples: all my photos of Expo are tagged with “Expo Milan 2015” and can be seen clicking here.
Many so called “starchitects” have been involved in the design of pavilions. The red one here is the Vanke pavilion and it has been designed by the famous architect Daniel Libeskind.
