Milan towards Expo 2015 - On 31st March 2008, the City of Milan was selected for the 2015 Universal Exposition on the basis of a candidature dossier which illustrates ambitious projects which have the declared intention of making the regional Lombard capital a model of sustainable development, with a particular focus on the environment. The essay therefore seeks to examine development programmes for the Italian metropolis produced in view of the Expo, in order to underline not only its virtuous intentions, but also some of its contradictions with particular attention paid to potential environmental and social side-effects. It is a careful analysis, performed by considering a series of sub-issues with constant reference made to the experiences of some European cities that have recently hosted his major event in order to offer ideas for possible alternatives.
