Nemesis &Partners Srl in Rome, Proger SpA of Pescara and BMS Progetti Srl of Milan wanted the architecture design of the Italian Pavilion to be represented as a community gathered together around a square: the emptiness houses the symbolic centerpiece of the exhibition space and gives shape to the volumes of architecture.
The volumetric articulation of the project of Palazzo Italia is based on four main blocks, arranged around an empty central square (connected by bridge-elements), hosting the main functions: Exhibition Area, Auditorium, Offices and Meeting Rooms.
The project develops the idea of ​​an architectural body as much as possible energy independent, to guarantee the maximum balance between production and consumption of energy.
Louis Godart, Direc­tor for the Con­ser­va­tion of Artis­tic Her­itage of the Ital­ian Pres­i­dent, has described the project for the Ital­ian pavil­ion at Expo 2015 as “An ode to joy, a tree of life, a uni­ver­sal cul­tural sym­bol.”
