Osaka, presentation of the Italian Pavilion for Expo 2025

Today, 6 November, the Italian Pavilion for Expo 2025 was officially presented in Osaka by the Governor of Osaka Yoshimura, Mayor Yokoyama and the Expo Secretary General Ishige. Attending the ceremony was also the Japanese Cardinal Maeda, as, for the first time, the Holy See will be part of the Italian Pavilion.

Commissioner General Mario Vattani explained the Pavilion’s concept – based on the Italian know-how – to an audience of journalists and representatives of leading Kansai businesses.

On the other hand, Architect Mario Cucinella traced the creative stages of the Pavilion’s creation, inspired by the Renaissance concept of the “ideal city”, now repurposed under an innovative perspective. The Japanese people have high expectations of the Italian Pavilion, as it is one of the few built in partnership with a Japanese construction company. While talking to the Japanese press, Commissioner Vattani emphasised the launch of a call for sponsors and restated the willingness of our Pavilion to also collect Japanese sponsorships in light of the rooted and close friendship between Italy and Japan.

“The permanent exhibition of our Pavilion”, explained Vattani, “will cover three main areas: aerospace, a sector that already sees a strong collaboration between Italy and Japan; infrastructure and cities; mobility and urban planning. The third area will focus on people, providing cutting-edge examples of technological advancement in life sciences, home automation and robotics”.
