Interview with Ms Denise Curcio, team leader at the EXPO Principality of Monaco Pavilion
1. What does EXPO mean for you?
Expo is a unique and incomparable experience; this
event is an exceptional meeting of different cultures which allows the exchange of ideas: that doesn’t happen often in life. The opportunity of meeting people coming from all over the World is also meant to solve real problems which are seriously
affecting the Earth, being too often underestimated. An effective awareness campaign needs to be boosted, as the Principality of Monaco Pavilion is trying to do through several projects. We should not forget, then, that the Monegasque Pavilion structure is
part of an important project itself: the building will be transformed in a Red Cross Training Centre in Africa.
2. What attracted you most at EXPO?
What impressed me most of the EXPO is its multiculturalism which enables different culture to live peacefully side by side in this restricted environment (although
the remarkable size of the expo area), offering to the visitors the best side of their Countries and high value projects. A proof of this is the great success of public been noted in these days, just a few weeks off the end of EXPO.
3. What does the food really mean for you?
In my opinion, the
food is essential and it really expresses who we are; we are what we eat. Food has also a fundamental social role: people expresses themselves, while eating everyday. Food could be often an Art form, a monument or something else. It is really important, then,
to make a life change in order to guarantee a proper management of the food sources at our disposal, often mismanaged. EXPO can offer important solutions to some problems and raise awareness into the great public on issues affecting all of us.
