Sala confirms Oct 31 Expo closure

Dismantling of pavilions to begin Nov 2

(ANSA) - Milan, October 21 - Expo CEO Giuseppe Sala confirmed Wednesday that the World's Fair would close as scheduled on October 31 despite calls to stay open longer.
    "With the large number of visitors and enthusiasm of these last few days I would put my tiredness to one side and also put my name down to join the party of those who want to prolong Expo," Sala said. "But this is impossible because there are rules, those of the Bureau of International Expositions, and we have to respect them," he explained. On November 2 work will begin to dismantle the pavilions, Sala said.
