Emilia Romagna “will be present at Expo as a unitary system whose different expressions of its production, academic, social and cultural worlds will create a single expression of the highest values of our land,” said Vincenzo Colla, Regional Councillor for Economic Development and Green economy, to describe the Region’s participation in the Italy Pavilion at Expo Dubai.
The first Universal Expo ever held in the Arab world “represents a great opportunity to establish ties with the Middle East and the Asian continent,” emphasised Colla.
The Councillor recalled the contribution of “regional universities, which will present 7 innovative projects jointly developed by all four universities of the Emilia-Romagna Region, giving a great example of concertedness in wanting to join efforts in order to develop innovative solutions to global challenges,” Colla said.
The Italy Pavilion will screen videos in two different sections of the exhibition itinerary showing the beauties of our Country’s territory, as narrated by Oscar-winning film director Gabriele Salvatores. “In Emilia-Romagna”, reads the Region’s official website, “Salvatores’s film crew will tell the story of the Po Delta, the Basilica of San Vitale and the Station designed by Calatrava in the Belvedere Section and Ducati, Consorzio Aceto Balsamico di Modena and MCM S.p.A. (robotics) for the regional Know-How Section”.
