Expo Milano 2015
Theme Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life |
is a Universal Exposition
that is non-commercial (and
not a trade fair
). It is organized by a competing country that wins the bid to host
involves the participation of other nations invited through its diplomatic channels. The first Expo was held
in London in 1851, and its success prompted other countries to organize similar events such
as the Paris Expo in 1889, for which the famous Eiffel Tower was built. Each Expo is dedicated to a topic of universal
interest. The Expo takes place on a purpose-built site
and is an opportunity for participants and visitors
to meet and share in a unique experience, as they get to know and experiment with an innovative
theme. The role
of a Universal Exposition, besides showcasing the
most promising new technologies
, also looks to interpret the collective challenges that
Mankind is facing.
The international body that regulates the frequency, quality and performance of the expositions, Le Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), was founded under an
international convention, signed in Paris in 1928. Currently over 160 countries are members of the BIE.
