A Milan Expo pavilion every day | Day 72: The Vatican

One of the more unlikely states to participate in the Food-themed Milan Expo is the Vatican, also known as the Holy See. Seeing as the tiny state, located inside the city of Rome, doesn’t have food-related infrastructure, its pavilion focuses more on the value of food in the world and the symbolic relevance of feeding. The space is a place for reflection on today’s issues related to food. The original canvas of the Last Supper by Tintoretto is on display too, and will be replaced half way through Expo with a Rubens tapestry showing the Institution of the Eucharist. There are also various talks and conferences being run over the course of Expo, dealing with topics related to food and religion. The relatively small (just under 750 square metres) structure consists of a solid shell with “Give us this day our daily bread” on the side in various languages.
