As you may or may not know, Milan is hosting the next World’s Fair in 2015. It is more commonly known as the Expo, short for Universal Exposition. These events occur every four years and the last time Milan hosted this was in 1906. These world exhibitions have been happening since 1851.
It’s quite apparent on the streets of Milan that they are preparing the city for the expected 20 million visitors between May 1 and October 31 of 2015.
The galleria and the Duomo are covered in scaffolding as restorations continue on an ongoing basis.
Have you been to Milan? Would the Expo be a reason to visit? Leave a comment. I’m interested in your feedback.
