Expo 2025 Osaka: Menegazzo to be Italy Pavilion culture head

Expo 2025 Osaka: Menegazzo to be Italy Pavilion culture head

Expert known for curatorship of important shows in Japan

Rossella Menegazzo will be the head of the culture sector of the Italy Pavilion at Expo 2025 Osaka.
    A professor of the history of East Asian Art at Milan University, Menegazzo is well known for having curated important shows and exhibitions in Italy, Japan and other parts of the world.
    The most recent is 'The floating world. Ukiyoe. Visions from Japan' which has just opened at Rome's Palazzo Braschi.
    "An Expo in Japan in 2025 is a particularly precious opportunity for Italy," Menegazzo said.
    "Although Japanese culture is so distant from Italian culture in terms of the difference in values and forms, it is complementary in many ways.
    "Osaka is the ideal platform from which to speak to the whole of East Asia about a vision of the future in which Italian know-how, the quality of its workmanship, its human and life values are at the center of technical and scientific development and encounters with others.
    "I hope that Italy, as a country, will also be able to transmit the idea of man and knowledge with the globally recognized value of 'living treasure' in our talents, valorizing not only the great names of our history, but also making way for those who are emerging and those who will flourish in the future".
    Active in the organization of international conferences, Rossella Menegazzo is the curator of exhibitions and catalogs on art, photography and design in collaboration with top Italian and foreign museums.
    She also contributes to a number of Italian cultural publication on the subjects of oriental art and culture.
    "Rossella Menegazzo's experience will be an important source of support for the creation of a program of cultural activities capable of presenting the extraordinary tradition of Italian know-how to the vast Asian public and, at the same time, promoting the vast range of what our university and research system has to offer," said Mario Vattani, Commissioner General for Italy at Expo.
    "This Expo will be dedicated to young people and their futures: creating synergies and strategic partnerships with Japanese universities is one of our objectives. We will work together to promote experiences and exchanges between students in line with the framework agreement signed in July 2023 by the Commissioner's office with the Higher Education and Research Ministry (MUR), the conference of Italian university rectors (Crui), (art, music and dance body) Afam and CoPer".
