Piazza Duomo in Milan goes green

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE Milan, 15 January - In the next few weeks the iconic Piazza Duomo in Milan will be re-landscape to coincide with the food themed Expo 2015.

The theme of the Expo 2015: “Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life” will be reflected by plantings of native trees and multi-tiered gardens of wheat, oats, rye, barley and aromatic herbs.

The vast open space of the piazza which is dominated by the city’s majestic gothic cathedral will be a botanical splendour. All the plants are not only ornamental, but are linked with the history of the territory and to the current species present in the Italian countryside.

The project will be funded privately at no cost to the public area and it will be in place for three years.

Travellers booked on the Vita Italian Tours: Northern Lakes & Dolomites Tour in June will have a great opportunity to experience this major event in the city of Milano.
