Who we are


Expo 2015 is not just an exposition, but a real participation process that engages countless subjects, between exhibitors and visitors, around the crucial theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. Six months of experiences, confrontations and innovations that educate about sustainability. 144 participating countries, 3 international organizations, one million square meters of exposition site and about 20 million expected visitors. An event that brings Italy to the center of the world and the world to Italy. A showcase of our artisan excellence that cannot be missed.

Italian Makers Village is born from a necessity turned into an opportunity thanks to Expo: to give a new launch of internationalization to the Made in Italy. Confartigianato, already inside the Italian Pavilion with an exposition area and an institutional space, has decided to aim at Expo to give shape to a parallel project that allows and benefits:

– the promotion and commercialization of organizations and products of excellence;

– the interaction with visitors, buyers, and foreign commercial delegations

– the valorization of the cultural, educational, and social aspects of the Made in Italy through exhibits, conventions, set-ups and recreational events that help communicate the meaning of “Italian Craftsmanship”

Upon these basis is born Italian Makers Village, the Fuori Expo of Confartigianato.
