Photographer's Note

EXPO 2015 Milano, is a splendid world fair with as central theme: "Feeding the planet, energy for life".
One of the most beautiful structures in the EXPO is the Tree of Life.


Located at the centre of the Lake Arena is the Tree of Life, which is, at one and the same time, a monument, a sculpture, an installation, a building, and a work of art.
Constructed by Orgoglio Brescia, a consortium of local businesses, and some 37 metres tall, this wood and steel structure forms part of the metaphor of the Plant Nursery, which informs the concept of the Italian Pavilion. The latter was designed by Marco Balich, who is also its Artistic Director, and whose other talents include producing large-scale events.
The structure of the Tree of Life takes its cue from the Renaissance. Indeed, Marco Balich based his design on designs by Michelangelo.
