SAN MARINO EXPO 2020

The adventure of San Marino towards the Expo 2020 Dubai has started: a process rich in opportunities for San Marino institutions and entities as well as for citizens and companies, which will reach its peak between 20 October 2020 and 10 April 2021. For the first time in the history of Universal Expositions, more than 150 years after the first edition in London in 1851, the Expo will be held in the Middle East and during the winter period.

The countries participating in the Expo Dubai 2020 are more than 180, plus global enterprises, educational institutions and non-governmental organizations, each of which will make its own contribution to the themes of the event, by interpreting them through its own unique cultural background. 25 million visitors are expected to visit the Expo during the 6 months, 70% of which is estimated to come from abroad.

San Marino will exploit all opportunities offered by the Expo 2020 Dubai to mobilize people around its event, by putting them at the disposal of its citizens and organizations, from companies to institutions, such as the Institute for Innovation and the University of San Marino. The students of the Faculty of Design have already been involved in the Creative Youth Programme: a contest that, at the end of November 2018, will reward the three best conceptualisation proposals in the fields of design, art, technology and sustainability for the creation of the national pavilion. This will be a great occasion to learn and develop skills and competences, but also a great opportunity to promote the University of San Marino in the world.
The contest will mobilize the creativity of young people, as the real protagonists of Expo 2020 Dubai, and will enable San Marino to have its own pavilion without affecting the overall investment for its participation. Indeed, the winning project will be transformed into the detailed plan for the construction of San Marino national pavilion.
