During my stay in Milano, I caught the chance of visiting the Expo 2015. As everything connected to politics in Italy, the event has been the topic of a fierce debate through the last years, with some sites under construction until the last moment, delays, and a corruption scandal. I was really curious to see how my country dealt with hosting the world’s fair. The Thailand was probably in charge of the weather, since, in the middle of June, my visit has been blessed by a typical monsoon rain.
The Tree of Life, a 37mt height structure designed by Marco Balich, dominates the Cardo. Inspired to the Reinessance, it hosts every evening a stunning water-play show, music and fireworks included.
