Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition hosted in Milan, from May 1 to October 31, 2015. It is intended to be a global showcase where countries and private companies show how they address the contemporary food issues.
To me, it is most of all a showcase of eclectic architecture and innovative technologies.
The new Milano
In the recent years, Milano has seen the rising of new skyscrapers and modern buildings.
These photos are a selection of shots taken in a day around the new Milano, among sceneries that are almost impossible to find in any other city in Italy.
Urban vegetable gardens are spreading all round Rome, where private citizens obtain the authorisation to cultivate vegetables in public areas, which would be otherwise abandoned.
Small communities grow up together with the vegetables, in these little country areas among the buildings, where peace and nature can be unexpectedly found.
This is a commissioned work for Earth Day Italia and Shoot4Change. The photos are part of a collective exhibition displayed at the MAXXI Museum in Rome, among photos of great Italian photographers.
