In a week Expo 2015 in Milan will be closed and I think that everything about it has been said: from the numbers to the incredible queues of the last few months, from the criticism to what to visit; did it meet the expectations? Did it reach the target? Was it useful? Was it interesting? Which country represented its spirit most? Was it worth a visit and the long queues?
Of course I’m not here to answer these questions because maybe you are not here to hear about it, but I just wanted to share with you through my pictures my recent visit to Expo for those who couldn’t go or for those who are just curious about another point of view!
I visited it a couple of times since the opening in May but usually at night and I didn’t have a chance to have a proper visit until a few weeks ago, when I decided to use my ticket to spend a whole day around the pavilions – or at least those where there was no need to wait for hours to get inside!
Even if the expectations weren’t good I managed to visit a lot of pavilions, but instead of targeting the “impossible ones” like Italy or Japan, I went for smaller pavilions. I usually don’t follow the defined paths and this is the reason why I enjoyed wandering around the small African, Caribbean or Eastern European pavilions where it was so easy to have friendly chats with people or to eat delicious food (Haitian pavilion was my favorite…I could also dance after a perfect dinner!).
I managed to visit France (my favorite pavilion!), Poland, Russia (where I could sip vodka on the terrace), Malaysia, Cambodia, Turkey, United States (another lovely terrace!), Lithuania (where I had a delicious lunch!) and many others and in the end I can say that it was fun to have a kind of “world tour” even if I was totally destroyed at the end of the day!
If you visited Expo in Milan tell me more about your experience and what you liked (or disliked) about it!
I wore Zara white jeans, Acne Studios green sweater, Momonì scarf, Nike at & Other Stories white sneakers and Miu Miu bag.
