A great number of people are expected to visit Expo Milano 2015, and this seems to be the occasion to reflect about the relationship with our vast heritage.
We are talking about an artistic, architectural, literary, musical, linguistic, landscape treasure related to crafts, design, fashion, cinema, photography and that, with its variety, ended up defining the features and the identity of Italian style.
Germany takes part in the Book Fair 2015 as guest of honour country because of our close collaboration with Frankfurt Buchmesse and Goethe Institute premises in Turin, that celebrates its 60th year of foundation.
For the organisation of the most prestigious book fair of world, this collaboration represents a crucial event for the relationship between the two nations in this very moment when the European scene is facing such a difficult and tense period of time.
