“Tunisia, naturally generous,” is the theme of the Tunisian participation in the World Expo Milano held from May 1 to October 31, 2015 in Milan, Italy.
According to a statement issued Monday by the Export Promotion Centre (CEPEX), Tunisia is present with “a stand of 250 m2 distinctive in terms of content and architectural concept.”
It offers a “journey through time and space to discover the Sahara and its rich ecosystem” and represents through the latest audiovisual technology “the analogy between the birth of Oasis and the history of life.”
Trade Minister Ridha Lahouel inaugurated the Tunisian pavilion which has been visited by several Italian personalities.
The latter expressed “their friendship and brotherhood feelings to Tunisia, a country with which they share a common history and culture,” said CEPEX.
Tunisia will mark its presence in the 6-month exhibition with a series of thematic events related to the promotion of Tunisian local produce with culinary and artistic shows.
Special Tunisian parties are on the agenda of the exhibition such as “the primeurs event” (May 14-16), “Tunisian food,” “Art and Tradition of Ramadan,” Tunisia’s national day (May 27), “Tunisian Harissa” (August 19-21), “Couscous Festival” (September 17-19) and the “Festival of dates” (October 15-17).
21 million visitors from 100 countries are expected at “Expo Milan”, whose total area is estimated at 110 hectares.
