- “Expo Experience”, presents the best possible experiences from visitors and describes the visit at Expo Milano 2015 as a unique tour through traditions and tastes from all over the world.
- “Expo Milano 2015 is an extraordinary opportunity of cultural and economic growth for our country – declared Cristoforetti – it is mainly the place, both virtual and actual, where we can meet and discuss one of the greatest challenges on earth: granting healthy and sustainable food for all the people on our planet.
- And then she added: “This experience for me is like a dream come true, but it is mostly an opportunity of growth for our industry and for the scientific community in our country. Space exploration is, in fact, a result of both state-of-the-art technology and international cooperation, and I believe that technology and cooperation are essential to win this battle on food”.
- Ladies and Gentlemen, planet Earth! See and enjoy a combination of elegant and evocative photographs with a thoughtful commentary on how we have made the Earth our home: “You are here”, written by former astronaut Chris Hadfield (link)
