摇篮的含义在滋养、 呵护、 及哺育新生代能量。树象征着生命和自然最原始的形态， 是一切事物发展的中心。树的根基用于连接各不同区域， 好比连接意大利国土上的各个部分。
这是一个具有创新性的、不寻常的、令人惊奇的、独特的展馆， 且与展馆周围环境相呼应。这里是很多企业家和学者的目的地，是一个体验意大利优秀制造业、 工艺、 及技术的地方。意大利馆主管是戴安娜布拉科。这一概念的创造者是创意总监，马可巴里其。
2015年米兰世博会上意大利有两大关键：一个是展会现场中轴上的Cardo， Cardo大道为35米宽， 325米长， 这里组织多项展会和活动 。还有一个是面向水中心的意大利馆， 代表意大利国家元首和政府。
展馆设计方案采用全球化招标， 参与竞标的包括多家知名设计公司， 方案理念为结合透明化、能量、水、自然、以及技术。
展馆的外形结构通过多重结构套用， 制造出森林树枝的形象，游客在展馆内可以体验和观赏美景。展馆由四栋建筑物围绕组成， 中间为大型中央区域， 象征热情的社区，也是展示开始的地方。 一面巨型的布满太阳能板的玻璃呼应了树的概念。 树根的概念则体现在向上蔓延的树根与树枝, 和顶部分布的树叶. 树形的建筑设计提供一个四层楼外加一个屋顶露台的展示空间。 展馆拥有由下向上和从上至下两套不同的通道。 建筑使用的水泥有催化作用：在阳光下吸收空气污染物并将他们转化成固体盐，且水泥本身由80%的可回收混凝土组成。
Theme "The Nursery of Italy"
The Universal Exposition of 2015 represents an excellent opportunity for Italy to revive and promote its many points of excellence in manufacturing, technology and science. And at the very center of this mission is the Italian Pavilion.
The nursery symbolizes the nurturing of projects and talents so that they can grow, providing them with fertile soil, offering them shelter and giving prominence to new energies. The tree is a symbol of life, of nature at its most primitive, a central icon around which all activities are arranged. And in a horizontal plan view, the roots are designed to connect the many different areas, particularly those dedicated to the Regions.
The pavilion is innovative, unusual, surprising, unique, and constantly interacts with its surrounding environment. It is the destination for many entrepreneurs and researchers, capable of reviving the concepts of Italian excellence, know-how and Made in Italy.
The general commissioner of the Italian Pavilion section is Diana Bracco. The creator of the concept is creative director, Marco Balich.
There are two focal points that characterize Italy’s presence at Expo Milano 2015: the Cardo, one of the axes on which the Expo Milano 2015 area is organized, and Palazzo Italy. The Cardo avenue is 35 meters wide and 325 meters long, and hosts many exhibitions and institutional activities. The Palazzo Italia, facing the spectacular scenery of the Piazza d’Acqua (the Water Square), is the representative site of the Italian State and Government.
The winning proposal, presented in an international competition by the group comprising of Nemesis & Partners Srl, Proger SpA, BMS Progetti Srl and Ing. De Santoli, offers a project that hinges on the concepts of transparency, energy, water, nature and technology.
The architecture, with its casing and volumetric joints, takes on the appearance of an urban forest of branches where visitors can experience and discover impressive views. Its four blocks lay out real urban scenes that surround the large central square, which acts as a place of welcome and a symbol of community, the starting point of the exhibition. Again, the concept of the tree is revisited here, with a crowning glass canopy made of solar panels.
With its roots resting on the ground and branches and upper foliage lifted aloft, the building-tree offers an indoors exhibition route, a journey of discovery on all four levels of the exhibition area that leads right up to the rooftop terrace, and from there, back down, on a new and different path, to the central square. The cement produced by Italcementi is photo catalytic: on contact with sunlight, it catches air pollutants and converts them into inert salts, and the mortar uses 80% recycled aggregates.
Palazzo Italia will continue to remain after the event, serving the city as a center of technological innovation.
