Drawing inspiration of the traditional Shanghai game in which the game sticks are spread and form different shapes, Italy pavilion consists of 20 functional modules representing 20 regions of Italy, bounded by the "sticks". The building can be dismantled and reconstructed on a smaller scale. The blade-shape crack, besides its flexible dismantled function, also serves as the temperature and light adjuster. The transparent concrete, the concrete mixed with glass materials are used in the construction.
Italy Pavilion has blended its traditional elements like the courtyard, lanes, giant trees that dot the city with long history.
The pavilion also cheers the visitors with Italian opera, fashion shows and foods.
