The Tree of Life: Italian Pavilion Milan Expo 2015
Placed at the centre of the lake, the tree is both a global and Italian icon: it is present in many cultures and in contemporary film imagery and it is inspired by the floor of Piazza del Campidoglio as designed by Michelangelo.
This iconic structure is deeply rooted in the Pavilion’s fertile soil, and symbolically offers its seeds and fruit to Italy and the entire world. This interactive, steel-and-wood structure, over 30 meters high, lights up as the hours go by in a riot of colours, and will become the home for many of the events in the Pavilion’s extensive schedule. >>>
