Scheduled this week is Expo School: Urban Challenges, the Current Crisis, Big Events and Trajectories of Local Development . It’s a course of study on the relationship between major events and territorial development, involving international experts in the field of urban planning and urban regeneration, from universities, research institutions and major public administrations. Organized by Laboratorio Expo , the initiative runs from Thursday, April 16 to Wednesday, April 22. Meetings are held at the University of Milan Bicocca, with the exception of April 21, which will take place in Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli (Via Romagnosi 3, Milan). The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Big events, engines of urban regeneration
Major international events, such as Expo, are a great opportunity for the cities and territories that host them, because they are an opportunity to undertake a process of urban regeneration, from the standpoint of both urban-physical and economic and social development. Always having been a place of complexity and change, cities today suffer an economic restructuring, which for the West has been marked by deindustrialization and recession. It’s a radical transformation of the physical and social structure, to which demographic and cultural changes have been added. In this context, major international events are an opportunity to start a process of regeneration that reach the depths of the urban fabric. The series of meetings with Expo School: Urban Challenges, the Current Crisis, Big Events and Trajectories of Local Development, organized by Laboratorio Expo, takes stock of the situation on developing theoretical and practical applications of the relationship between major events and urban regeneration. 
Milan and the Universal Exposition, before and after
In the various meetings, lectures and workshops for Expo School: Urban Challenges, the Current Crisis, Big Events and Trajectories of Local Development, particular attention is paid to the metropolitan area of Milan and the impact that the Universal Exposition of  2015 will have on it. A theme that is important to Laboratorio Expo and one that they have already addressed with their workshop NEXT CULTURE: ruolo e funzione dell’offerta culturale durante e dopo Expo Milano 2015, (The role and function of cultural offerings during and after Expo Milano 2015),  that was held on October 29, 2014. For that event, as well as for those in the current program, Laboratorio Expo has brought together the leading international experts in organizing large events and in the planning of their relationship with the land. The objective is to  gather ideas and practices that can maximize the benefits of Expo Milano 2015 for the city and the communities that host it.
