The idea of visiting Italy could hardly have presented better than what we experienced last evening at the Italian Cultural Institute in west Los Angeles. For what was presented was a preview of Expo Milano 2015 which will take place starting May 1 and continuing to October 31, 2015.
The theme of the Universal Exposition is "Feeding the planet, Energy for Life" and it is expected to draw over 20 million visitors from all over the world.
A film showed other places to visit as well as the Expo including Naples and Rome. The scenes were a mix of the modern as well as classic Italian countryside and yes, some of those tempting culinary favorites that have earned international fame.
The Expo Milano site is huge and filled with over 60 pavilions, with many countries represented.
Following the presentation there was a buffet of classic Italian dishes identified by a particular region or district accompanied by a choice of Italian vintages.
