Balloons

Clusters are one of the new attractions of Expo Milano 2015: for the first time pavilion communities are not grouped by geographical area but rather by a common theme and the food group to which they belong. Each country found in one of the clusters has an individual display space in which to develop its own personal interpretation of the theme of Expo Milano 2015.
