On 1 May, the Universal Exposition 2015 opens its doors to the public in the host city of Milan. A live concert by Andrea Boccelli on 30 April marked the opening.
The area occupied by the Expo 2015 site is located about 15 km (about 10 miles) northwest of Milan and is organised into five thematic pavilions. 148 countries and many international corporations are contributing exhibits to the Expo.
The theme chosen for the 2015 Milan Universal Exposition is Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. This embraces technology, innovation, culture, traditions and creativity and how they relate to food and diet. Expo 2015 will further develop themes introduced in earlier Expos in the light of new global scenarios and emerging issues, with a principal focus on the right to healthy, secure and sufficient food for all the world’s inhabitants.
