The Italy Pavilion is located along the river near the No.8 entrance, on the west side of Zone C, adjacent to the UK Pavilion.
The structure is made up of 20 separate functional irregularly-shaped modules that can be assembled into smaller structures. The modules represent Italy's 20 regions and their diversity of cultures and compatibility. The building is made of a cutting-edge material known as transparent concrete, and visitors can look through into the adjacent modules.
Also being displayed between July and August are the country's various innovations, including a paint that cleans the air by eating smog.
