Situated in the heart of Milan, right in front of the Castello Sforzesco, Expo Gate introduces the public to Expo Milano 2015, forming a bridge between the city and the exhibition site. Since May 2014, Expo Gate has been the stage on which Milan interprets the central theme of Expo Milano 2015: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. Open to visitors and residents alike, Expo Gate offers a light-filled place to meet, learn and share ideas. Expo Gate was created by the Scandurra Studio and consists of two modular and transparent buildings with a light form, designed for minimal impact on the environment.
The street address of Expo Gate is Via Beltrami, right in the historic part of Milan, with the Sforzesco Castle to one side – the site of the Universal Exposition of 1906 – and, to the other, Via Dante , the street along which the flags of over 130 participating countries are displayed. This location is, therefore, the gateway between Milan and the Expo, in the same way as Milan has always been considered a gateway between Italy and the rest of the world.
Not only is Expo Gate an information point where you can find full details of events and other initiatives at Expo, it is also where you can purchase tickets to Expo Milano 2015. A place where new experiences are created, Expo Gate hosts a rich and varied program of events, curated by Caroline Corbetta, with something for all age groups.
Expo Gate is open daily from 10:00 to 20:00
