TheItaly Pavilion of Expo 2015it is organized in two large blocks, the first able to accommodate the public of visitors with the exhibition area and the auditorium. The second macro-block is intended to accommodate institutional offices, meeting rooms and delegations.
TheItaly Pavilioncan be described as a large tree complete with roots, branches and foliage.
The two macro-blocks can be further divided into functional spaces, the result is a volumetric articulation based on four pivotal areas organized around a central square. The functional spaces (exhibition areas, auditoriums, offices and meeting rooms) are connected to each other by bridge elements. The four functional elements have punctual massive supports on the ground that recall the great roots of mother nature. The "roots" from the ground on the first floor rise upwards so that, seen from inside the square, they are freed withhairlight given by particular glazed surfaces on which concrete structures extend which, structuring in a dynamic way, look like thick branches.
The entire project was the result of the collaboration between the architecture firm Nemesi & Partners Srl of Rome, Proger SpA of Pescara and BMS Progetti Srl of Milan.
