Le grandi esposizioni sono state un elemento caratterizzante delle dinamiche urbane mondiali dal 1851, anche se l’evento si è evoluto ed è cambiato nel tempo. Le Expo si trovano ora ad un nuovo punto di svolta: il cambiamento degli assetti economici e dei riferimenti culturali richiedono un aggiornamento di questa tipologia di grande evento. L’Expo di Milano 2015 ha per certi aspetti elaborato un modello di esposizione per il XXI secolo, più adeguato alle esigenze di una società dotata di un ampio accesso alle informazioni globali e di diffuse possibilità di viaggiare e di compiere nuove esperienze. Mentre l’opinione pubblica si interroga sui costi e sulle condizioni operative di questi eventi, è opportuno chiedersi quale sarà in futuro l’approccio delle città ospitanti
