Made in Italy and its values in architectural design

Il Padiglione Italia vuole essere un luogo vivo, un punto di incontro in cui poter comunicare il Made in Italy in tutte le sue forme.
Proprio per questo anche gli elementi costruttivi dovevano necessariamente richiamare questi valori.
Grande spazio quindi alle trasparenze del vetro e dei cristalli, un simbolo di dialogo e apertura verso il mondo.
Poi l’Energia, a simboleggiare l’energia dell’Italia ma anche il rispetto dell’ambiente. Palazzo Italia è infatti un edificio a impatto quasi zero grazie all’utilizzo di vetro fotovoltaico e alle proprietà fotocatalitiche del cemento utilizzato per l’involucro esterno, un cemento in grado di assorbire alcuni inquinanti presenti in atmosfera.
L’Acqua, la Natura e la Tecnologia sono gli altri elementi su cui ruota l’intero progetto nato per rappresentare una foresta urbana che racconta la storia delle eccellenze italiane proiettandole in un futuro dinamico e sostenibile.
