Tree of Life

Expo Milan 2015

Expo Milan 2015 is the Universal Exposition hosted by Italy until 31st October 2015.
During six months, in Milan all the participants will expose the best of their technologies in order to give a solid answer to vital needs: being able to assure safe and sufficient food for everyone respecting the planet and its harmony.
Expo extends along an area of 1,1 millions sqm and involves more than 140 countries and International Organizations. More than 20 millions visitors are expected to attend the biggest Italian event of 2015 for number of visitors and visibility on the media.

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is the symbol of the Italian Pavilion at Expo.
The installation has been coated with the Top Quality wood preserver YM---M101 and the hydro oil YS---M300/--NTR.
According to Marco Balich, the Tree of Life creator, this artwork represents a primeval nature and reflects the traditions and the knowledge of Italian territories.

Many people wish the Tree of Life to survive after the exhibition, exactly like the Eiffel Tower: conceived as a temporary attraction for Paris 1889 World’s fair, and become the symbol of the French capital. We will know that only in autumn; meanwhile, we can enjoy a wonderful and unique artwork.

The tree is made of 1200 curvy larch boards, coming from Austria, it is 35 m high, the structure is in steel and is 70 tons heavy and has a 45-meter diameter crown. The internal part is in steel, but it is the wood that gives the structure its soul.

It is located in the center of the Lake Arena, heart of the 260 shows, 17 events a day, 1 show every hour, light and water illusions of the Italian Pavilion. It will be light up by two firework shows during the nights.
