EXPO Ferroviaria 2019



The Exhibition Venue

Fiera Milano Rho

Between the towns of Rho and Pero, on the site of an Agip refinery that was closed down in the early nineties, stands the new Fiera di Milano exhibition center, open since 2005. This center is located, like the previous one, along the northwest corridor, near the many traffic arteries linking Milan with Turin and Varese.

The design of the facility was entrusted to Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas, who created a 1300-meter long moving walkway covered by a glass and steel “sail,” passing among the eight pavilions with twenty exhibition spaces. In addition to the facilities for trade show events, Fiera Milano also has a convention center, a restaurant, several snack bars, pizzerias, fast-food restaurants, and such other shops and basic services as a pharmacy, a bank, and a security force.

When Milan was selected to host the 2015 World Expo, Fiera Milano became the Official Partner of Operations, one of the driving forces in the planning of the events and the creation of the spaces that make up Expo 2015.
