THE ITALY PAVILION
Palazzo Italia is a genuine landmark on the Expo site, standing out because of its architecture and its location on one of the four cardinal points – the northern one. It also provides a scenic backdrop for Viale del Cardo, which runs right across the site. Palazzo Italia draws on the concept of an “urban forest”, with the “branched” outer envelope designed by Nemesi Studio to simultaneously conjure up primitive and technological images. The weave of lines creates a play of light, shadow, solids and voids that generates a sculpture-like building with clear hints of land art.
