Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life!

So yesterday, I had one of the most exciting days ever! I went do visit the well known EXPO 2015. I'm feeling very lucky to be here in Milan at this period of time only for this! Expo 2015 is the current universal expostition hosted in Italy. The last time Milan hosted the exposition was in 1906. It is held every 5 years in different countries. This year, the main theme was : "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life!" Every country of the world had it's own pavilion to show their food and diet and how this things relate with technolodgy, traditions, culture, creativity and art. 

Here are some fragments of my experience! 

The first thing I saw was a special show called "The spirit of chinese brushwork" . Loving their amazing work of arts and traditional design. I also brought some of their drawings home. :) 

Italy and their art of creating a new "Madonnina" only for Expo. 

Parts of Duomo cathedral.

It's funny, I know...

Corea's pavilion was really special. Coreans are really good in mixing technology with art to make you understand how important is to choose eating wisely. 

Over using. 

Corean design and fashion.

Cows are sacred.
Cote D'Ivoire
China, here we go!

China really had a great show! We walked around the gallerie full of their typical umbrellas and paintings. Then we found ourselves into a cinema when we watched a short animated film about love, family and traditional food.
