The site, northwest of Milan proper, will be surrounded by an artificial lake. Half of the site will be occupied by pavilions, with about one-third of the site devoted to open space adjacent to those pavilions and one-sixth a green area around the site.

At the Expo 2015 2nd International Participants Meeting earlier this month, Expo 2015's planners started the three days of meetings with a ceremony in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (built from 1865 to 1877) in the Piazza del Duomo area in Milan.
After the performance, they led the participants in a procession to our first day of meetings at the University of Milan. As we progressed along the way, new banners (representing the participating nations thus far) were unveiled.
