Once Milan had been chosen as the city to host the exhibition Italy then had the honour of choosing the central theme. Taking into consideration the current world crises italy chose 'Feeding the Planet' and 'Energy for Life' in the hope of opening up an international discussion on these major challenges. They say that they are hoping that "Expo Milano 2015 will provide an opportunity to reflect upon, and seek solutions to, the contradictions of our world".
There are various events at different times and in other locations but the main exhibition centre has been purpose built in the Rho Fiera area just north west of Milan. It is within easy access of the city's airports and close to all main public transportation lines.
The travel time is roughly 25 minutes from the Duomo in the city centre. It covers an area of just over one hundred thousand square metres and will offer visitors, among other things 'a direct and immediate food experience'.
