Milan in the year of the Expo -
history, culture and literature
Tuesday 5 May 2015, 6 pm.
Litteraturhuset (Wergelandsveien 29, Oslo), Amalie Skram room
The 2015 Universal Exhibition (Expo 2015) will take
place in Milan between May and November. It will offer a unique gateway to the
world, with its over 140 participating countries but also a unique access to Italy and Italian
Expo’s main themes are truly Italian: food, environment, traditions. Visitors
will have an extraordinary opportunity to explore those themes in and around
the Expo’s areas, why not following the footsteps of great Italian
Milan is still the busy, active and yet elegant and passionate city described
by the adopted Milanese Stendhal and by the father of the Italian Romantic
literature Alessandro Manzoni. It also features the old districts, the intense
cultural debate and the beautiful countryside underlined in Umberto Eco’s
latest novel, newly published. But visitors can also see world renowned ‘The Last Supper’ by Leonardo
da Vinci, as well as his own vineyard: both have been brought to new life; or
stroll along the newly refurbished city canals.
Expo 2015 will figure an additional exhibition in Venice and in nearby Padua
visitors can reach the oldest University botanical garden in Europe, described
by Wolfgang Goethe in his ‘Italian journey’ and where Nathaniel Hawthorne set
his morbid “Rappaccini’s daughter”.The event is organized by the Italian
Embassy. Presentations will be held by the Italian Ambassador Giorgio Novello,
Counsellor Tommaso Andria and Commercial Attaché Giacomo Cosmi. Excerpts in Norwegian translation from books by writers referred to in the
presentations will be read. At the
end, Q&A will follow.
