Holy See to take part in 2015 world’s fair

Catholic World News - February 28, 2014

The Holy See will join 139 other nations in taking part in the next world’s fair, officially known as Expo Milan 2015. The theme of the fair, which will take place from May to October, is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”; some 20 million visitors are expected.

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, announced that the Holy See’s pavilion, called “Not by Bread Alone,” will have four components.

The first, according to Vatican Information Service, is “a garden to preserve, which relates to the protection of Creation”; the second, “food to share,” will include an image of the multiplication of the loaves.

The third, “a meal that educates,” emphasizes “that education is fundamental for forming young generations in the context of a culture of human relations focused on the essentials and not on consumerist waste,” while the fourth is devoted to the Eucharist.
