The Italy Pavilion will narrate Italy’s points of excellence with Beauty as the leitmotif of its multifaceted aspects: landscaping, architectural, artistic, scientific and manufacturing. The art and culture of know-hows will testify to the capacity of capitalizing on history and bringing it up to date through contemporary languages and technologies.

At the Italy Pavilion, the value of the Beauty of art will be expressed in the installations at the Belvedere and at the Garden of Stories – co-developed with the Italian National Research Council (CNR) to monitor the emotionality of plants – and, above all, at the Theatre of Memory, was the central theme of the contribution by Art Director Davide Rampello: a space whose walls are lined with 2,600,000 gold-leaf and glass tesserae reproducing those of the Palatine Chapel of Ravenna and which hosts the unique and unrepeatable re-production of the statue of David, 5.01 meters tall.

The aerial images of the Italy Pavilion and of the replica of the statue of David – from its digitization to its installation – shot by Massimo Sestini were the magnificent backdrop to the event, with the master of photography talking for the first time about the re-production of Michelangelo’s David from his vantage point.
