LOOK AND STYLE IN THE PAVILION

The welcome staff will be wearing uniforms especially designed by Prada.

The uniforms have been created using faille and poplin stretch fabrics and combining bright colors - such as fuchsia, white, and steel gray - to convey a highly recognizable, modern and elegant look. The staff will carry the Prada’s unisex briefcase shoulder bags known as “piattine”, a classical style made of iron-grey “vela” fabric.

Foyer: Andrea Palladio's Olympic Theater

A grand entrance, which represents the crossing of an imaginary threshold separating the location of the Expo – Shanghai – from Italy, as well as a personal welcome to visitors

• The grand entrance is modeled after the Olympic Theater in Vicenza, the oldest surviving enclosed theater in the world and a UNESCO world heritage site. Designed by Andrea Palladio and completed in 1585, the model in the foyer is half the size of the actual theater.
• A bas-relief sculpture featuring the Pavilion and exhibition theme ‘City of Man: Living the Italian Way’ in different languages, in addition to the Chinese character for happiness 福 “fu”.
