A Milan Expo pavilion every day | Day 39: Slow Food

Today’s pavilion is not from a particular country, but instead from a movement which was born in Italy, the brainchild of Carlo Petrini: Slow Food. The Slow Food movement basically focuses on using local produce with known origins in order to produce wholesome, healthy food.


The Slow Food pavilion is found at the end of the Expo’s central boulevard. It was designed by Herzog & De Meuron, and is made up of three rather simple, primitive looking buildings containing: an exhibition space demonstrating the biggest issues in our diets and offering lots of interactive exhibits for guests to enjoy; a restaurant where visitors can sample Slow Foods and drinks for themselves; and an auditorium. The structures surround a biodiversity garden, the purpose of which is to demonstrate to people how easy it is to grow their own vegetables and herbs. The atmosphere of the pavilion is simple, and reminds visitors of a refectory and market.


After Expo finishes, the structures will be dismantled and reassembled as garden sheds for schools all over Italy in such a way as to teach young Italians about the importance of the Slow Food movement.
