On Friday, July 4, 2014 Expo Gate in Largo Cairoli, Milan, hosted the presentation of the WE – Women for Expo and Italian Pavilion competitions.
The two competitions, “Women’s projects” and “Projects for women” are an opportunity, in the run-up to the Universal Exhibition of 2015, to support women as a motor for change towards an increasingly sustainable future.
Diana Bracco, President of Expo 2015 and General Section Commissioner for the Expo 2015 Italian Pavilion, opened the meeting with these words: “Today we are presenting a splendid initiative that the Italian Pavilion has decided to launch in its dual role as country hosting the 2015 Universal Exhibition and as participating country. These are two competitions, one aimed at start-ups by women and the other at female solidarity. Both initiatives will highlight that women are an extraordinary motor for change in every part of the world.”
In addition to Diana Bracco, also speaking were Rossella Citterio – Communication Director of Expo 2015 SpA and head of the WE – Women for Expo project, Nicoletta Polla-Mattiot, journalist and WE – Women for Expo Ambassador and Anna Puccio, General Secretary of Fondazione Italiana Accenture, who presented the digital platform dedicated to the competitions.
