Italy to showcase 'Rome Experience' at Expo
Post Date: 2010-03-05

ROME - Italy's capital will showcase the lifestyle of its people at the Shanghai 2010 World Expo, local official Francesco Maria Orsi told Xinhua in a recent interview.

 

Italy's pavilion "the City of Man" is made of 20 functional modules that can be assembled freely.

With its theme of "The Rome Experience," the events and projects to be staged by Rome have a double goal: promoting Rome's image on the international stage and opening up opportunities for Roman firms wanting to do business in China, said Orsi, mayor Gianni Alemanno's delegate for the Expo.

"Rome has all credentials to be an ideal model of the Expo's theme 'Better City, Better Life' thanks to its unique historical and architectural beauties, life quality and style," Orsi said.

What makes Italy's capital so special is its life "experience," its most precious asset. Apart from Rome's monuments, which have witnessed a great imperial past, Orsi stressed that Rome is at the same time a symbol of beauty, love of life and well-being.

"Everyone visiting our city is enchanted by its beauties and unique way of life. There is no doubt that Rome is one of the most beautiful and best cities in the world, and it's exactly this notion we will showcase in Shanghai," he said.

Recalling a television broadcast seen during his last visit in Shanghai, Orsi said he was impressed by the answers the Chinese public gave to what they believed made up Rome's appeal. "The key-words quoted by the interviewers were: sport, empire, food, wedding dresses and romanticism."

Orsi said that the World Expo will be a chance to highlight the common cultural and imperial links between Italy and China.
