Have you heard about Expo Milano 2015? It will open this year in Milan, Italy May 1 and close Oct 31. I plan to go and will blog about it direct from the Expo site. It promises to be a food extravaganza of historical magnitude with pavilions from around the world.
Architect Giacomo Salizzoni a colleague and friend who created Orti DiPinti a beautiful community garden in Florence told me about the expo. I plan to attend sometime in July. Catch a video glimpse of Orti Dipinti. I will publish more about this garden in the near future.
Following is the latest video by a drone flying over the Expo Milano site on December 1, 2014.
