There are 15 Italian Regions that have subscribed to the project launched by the Italy Pavilion at Expo Dubai: the largest number that Italy has ever brought to a Universal Expo. Their participation will materialize in scores of events scheduled to be held every day during the 6-month Expo that will kick off on the 1st of October also thanks to the Oscar-worthy videos screened along the exhibition itinerary.
Along the exhibition itinerary, visitors to the Italy Pavilion will be able to admire the shots taken over the last few months by film director Gabriele Salvatores, who was called to narrate the Beauty of our Country’s Regions and their manufacturing, technological and artisanal capabilities.
Salvatores’s narrative of the Regions is based on a sequence of highly spectacular and impacting views that are visible in two sections: the Belvedere, with surround projections of the most impressive Italian landscapes, and the section of Italian ‘Know-Hows’, illustrated in “Monographs” in black and white on a 100-square-meter screen, showing visitors the best of the ‘arts and crafts’ and of the agri-food, machinery and design sectors and the operation of the most advanced technologies.
The Regions will also have a dedicated space in the “Short Stories” section: a temporary exhibition in which still images and objects arranged in display cases will tell visitors the story of Italian regional know-hows and craftsmanship.
