Expo 2015 was held just northwest of Milan's city center under the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life." It was the first world's fair with a food theme.
Unlike previous expositions where smaller countries or countries with fewer resources were grouped together geographically, Expo 2015 created food-theme clusters that allowed countries to address various issues that are not necessarily bound by geography.
At the Expo 2015 2nd International Participants Meeting in 2012, Expo 2015's planners started the three days of meetings with a ceremony in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (built from 1865 to 1877) in the Piazza del Duomo area in Milan.
After the performance, they led the participants in a procession to our first day of meetings at the University of Milan. As we progressed along the way, new banners (representing the participating nations thus far) were unveiled.

Expo 2015 is part of history and you're a part of it.
World's fair leave behind a physical legacy as well as less tangible legacies. The Expo 2015+100 Archive hopes to capture both of these. We're collecting ephemeral items related to the event as well as stories related to the item. How was it used? Where could it be found?
