EXPO 2015: Systematica for Palazzo Italia
Systematica was appointed to assess the accessibility and capacity of pedestrian flows inside and surrounding Palazzo Italia, and to develop an in-depth analysis on the exhibition areas.
“Palazzo Italia represents the emblematic heart of the entire Italian Pavilion. It is destined to be the centre of technological innovation for the city of Milano after the Expo. The design, created by Studio Nemesi & Partners Srl, Proger SpA and BMS Progetti Srl, was inspired by the surrounding nature and architecture. The main central square is divided into four functional blocks: the exhibition area, the events area, the offices area and the institutional area. Overhead is a scenic terrace, which offers visitors a spectacular view across the site.
The Italian Pavilion will concentrate on exposing the national food culture and tradition in terms of very high quality products and finished goods. Italy’s presence can be seen both inside the exposition areas, along the Cardo, and at Palazzo Italia, the representative building where Italian State and Government representatives will be based. Palazzo Italia will also be the location for official meetings between Italy and other participant countries, and will face the areas reserved for European Institutions.”
