The Russian Federation is an initiator and prominent participant in the global discussion on the quality of and accessibility to food for its own population and for the world. As one of the most influential players in the global agricultural produce market, our country has a unique opportunity to guarantee food supply to every person on the planet.
The concept for the Russian Pavilion developed by leading architectural bureau Speech, led by Sergei Choban (Federation Tower, Moscow, ‘Dom Akvare’, Berlin and ‘Nevskaya Ratusha’, St. Petersburg), Alexei Ilin and Marina Kuznetskaya. The 2015 Pavilion continues the architectural tradition of the best of the prize-winning Russian and Soviet pavilions of previous years, and sets itself apart with the striking lightning motif of its design, surging skywards.
At the Milan Expo, the Russian pavilion will demonstrate its sheer scale as reflected by its food resources. Russia’s vast reserves of water and arable land, its great scientists and their contributions to agriculture, its diversity of national cuisines and tradition — all this will be presented in an accessible and entertaining format, engaging visitors not only through interactive displays but also through live tastings of food and drink.
Expo 2015 Milano takes place from 1 May to 31 October 2015 and includes a full programme of events dedicated to the overall theme: food safety, development, sustainable food production and culinary traditions. In particular, Expo 2015 will feature the following events:
