"I’m convinced that this Expo was a great success. It’s not only the mere data that tells us this. It can be seen in the faces of the people, the families enjoying themselves together, even the visitors who have been standing in the scorching sun. The people were here, they came, there were children everywhere. Expo Milano 2015 has shown that when Italians want to do something well, they’re able to do so… and they do."
