All the facets of sustainability at Expo Milano 2015

Sustainability / Stefano Carnazzi

Sustainability is a concept which is made up of several different but intrinsically connected aspects: the environmental, the social, the economic and the cultural aspects. It is these different faces of the prism that make this concept innovative, thus getting away from the classical antinomy between campaigners for the protection of the environment and those favoring economic development understood merely as a quantitative growth figure.

United Arab Emirates. When a date can save a life

Culture / Emanuela Taverna

This desert country imports 85 percent of its food needs from abroad. This explains why it has absorbed so many gastronomic traditions from other countries, especially those which were home to its many expatriates.

Jordan, gateway to the East

Culture / Stefano Bettera

Jordan’s National day will be celebrated on October 10, and will emphasize the independent nature of this small country, squeezed between the mountains and two seas, but in a highly strategic position.

Djibouti. An unexpectedly alluring country with amazing landscapes

Culture / Cinzia Figus

Although battling against the problem of creeping desertification, Djibouti holds many unpredictable natural marvels, like the great salt lakes, the deserts inhabited by zebras and warthogs, the hundreds of kilometers of coastline swarming with colorful fish and coral. Its cuisine too is filled with surprises… and refined French influences.

Qatar. Collaboration flowers in the arid lands

Culture / Giorgio Zerbinati

The Government has instituted the National Food Security Plan (F.S.P.) to guarantee a future of sustainable and secure food for its inhabitants. Its strategic guidelines point towards increasing the productivity of agricultural land and, at the same time, cooperation with other Nations.

Claudio Descalzi. The force of integration and cooperation in Africa

Sustainability / Simone Molteni

The CEO of the ENI energy giant explains in this interview the value of the company’s work in Africa. He underlines that “anyone playing an important role in this continent must think not only of taking, but also of giving. That way, growth happens more quickly. ENI’s contribution has been to find gas for using in a domestic context: is it strategically crucial to invest the country’s resources within the country too.”

Kuwait. The allure of a small country where the sands of the desert meet the warm waters of the Persian Gulf

Culture / Cinzia Figus

A country projected towards the future, where oil wells and fish farms share the landscape with futuristic solar energy plants and hundreds of majestic wind turbines harvest the gifts of the wind.

Chile. Home to biodiversity

Culture / Emanuela Taverna

Sea, desert, islands, lakes, volcanoes, and glaciers: this long, narrow strip of land has it all. Also at the table with fish, fruit, wine and corn being just some of its best-known ingredients.

Chile. Where the stars shine brighter

Culture / Emanuela Taverna

From the Atacama Desert (which has the clearest night sky in the world) to Rapa Nui, Easter Island, and from Patagonia to the island of Chiloè, Chile has a huge inheritance of biodiversity which generates a generous range of gastronomic options

Palestine. Where the oil is not only good but also good for you

Culture / Redazione Expo 2015

Palestinians know what a precious resource water is. And its land is home to one of the most generous of all trees: the olive tree. Palestine’s National Day in Expo Milano 2015 is on September 19.
