Expo Gate

Alessandro Scandurra

A virtual parade to introduce the Expo Gate and the city of the Expo 2015.

With this colorful animated tale, Italian architect Alessandro Scandurra, about a year before the beginning of the Universal Exhibition in Milan (2015), introduces his Expo Gate project to an audience wider than just the local citizens: its genesis, inspirations, the overall planning process and its possible future scenarios. A red carpet where silhouettes of Enzo Jannacci and Giorgio Gaber parade along with the sketches of the Cathedral and of other iconic symbols of Milan.

The short animation is also a bridge to connect the recognizable and well-known imagery of the city to this new project, so that inhabitants and visitors of the Expo can get to know this new project, a new temporary presence in the midst of the cityscape. Besides references to the more traditional, cultural and architectural icons of Milan, in the short video presentation a lively sequence of drawings gives an idea of all the occasions of leisure and entertainment that the pavilion will host during the period of the Expo.
