Expo 2015 Feeding the planet, energy for life

Everything is ready: Milan will be the center of the world, from the Expo Gate in front of the Sforzesco Castel on the Navigli canals, to Rho, the new city of the food. Until October 31st, we will talk about food as “energy of our planet”, with the participation of 147 countries, exhibitions, conferences, temporary installations, events and new metropolitan icons, as the Bosco Verticale, the two skyscrapers with more than 900 trees species and 83900 sqm of terraces, created by Stefano Boeri.

The theme at the center of the event

Food is nourishment, pleasure, taste, home, family, art, war, peace, affection, love and, most of all, “Food is Life”, for us and for the planet.
A unique journey not to be missed among people arriving from far away offering their foods, their cultures, their traditions, their shows. A journey that describes “a place where cultures, traditions and flavors cross between extraordinary architectures”.

Special openings, exhibitions, iconographic itineraries focused on the food in the holy places; theatrical plays and comedies.

INTERNATIONAL MASERATI CENTENNIAL GATHERING

posted by Home In Italy on September 3rd, 2014

Three days from Modena to Turin, with a racetrack stop in Cremona, to celebrate Maserati’s first century. The International Maserati Centennial Gathering will be held from September 18 through September 20. The three days will see a succession of exhibitions, parades, a regularity race, a track test, a visit to the two Maserati factories and a concours d’elegance. Cars and collectors from all over the world are expected to be in attendance.

A hundred years have gone by since, in December of 1914, Alfieri Maserati and his brothers Ettore and Ernesto opened the first car repair workshop in a basaement on Via de’ Pepoli, Bologna. Here they began to prepare and modify cars for themselves – the three Maserati brothers were also rather capable drivers – and the gentlemen drivers of those heroic days. These were the first steps of a company that in time was to become an international icon of Italian motoring.

The Maserati Centennial Gathering will begin in the morning on Thursday, September 18, in Modena with the arrival of the historic and contemporary models that will be taking part in the event and their display in some of the most captivating urban spaces. The next day, Friday, September 19, the participants will make their way to Turin, with a stop in the San Martino del Lago circuit and a parade through the streets of Cremona. The afternoon of Saturday, September 20, will see the concluding event: the Concours d’Elegance in Piazza San Carlo.

posted by Home In Italy on June 6th, 2014

From August 1-3, the winding valleys of Massa Martana, Umbria will transform into a bohemian playground.

3 days. 2 stages. 1 community. Italy is the motherland of some of the world’s most iconic creations in art, music and cinema. And now it’s home to another cultural phenomenon that’s sweeping the international music community: the magic of setting up camp to completely immerse ourselves in a weekend of music, dance and like-hearted souls.

The Soundtrack. Fusing historical punk rock sounds with modern indie, Umbria Rock Festival 2014 is excited to announce an international lineup, featuring sets by the Kaiser Chiefs, James, Paul Weller, Basement Jaxx, Peter Hook and The Light, The Cribs, The Charlatans, Courteeners and more.
