The country will showcase its finest minds, talent and expertise at its pavilion themed 'Beauty connects People'.

Italy, among the first countries participating in the Universal Exposition to start building its own pavilion, has broken ground at Expo 2020 Dubai. Themed 'Beauty connects people', it will showcase its finest minds, talent and expertise and feature Innovation Hub, an innovatively designed structure inspired by the most advanced sustainability and circular economy standards.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the Expo site in the presence of Stefano Buffagni, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of Italy; Nicola Lener, Italian Ambassador to the UAE; Najeeb Al Ali, Executive Director of Expo Bureau; and Paolo Glisenti, Commissioner General of Italy.

The Italy pavilion, located in proximity with the UAE pavilion on the 'cultural spine' of the Expo site, will open its doors on October 20, 2020 and demonstrate innovation and sustainability in aerospace. The structure, covering an area of 3,500 square metres and reaching a height of almost 27 metres, will afford a memorable immersive experience to visitors. Italy expects an estimated 28,000 visitors on average daily for a total of over five million visitors during the six months of the Expo that will conclude in April 2021.

Italy will share visibility space with the pavilions of the UAE, India, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Japan and the US between the thematic areas of Expo 2020 dedicated to 'Opportunities' and 'Sustainability'. Carlo Ratti, Italo Rota, Matteo Gatto and F&M Ingegneria are the creative masterminds of the pavilion. - business@khaleejtimes.com
