Boero Group paints largest Italian flag in history at Expo Dubai 2020

The Italian pavilion at Expo Dubai 2020 was finally opened to the public on 1st October 2021. The exposition will see 200 countries exhibit their most exemplary ideas under the overarching theme ‘Connecting Minds, Generating the Future’.

The pavilion is comprised of three boat hulls that make the structure’s roof, a multimedia facade made with two million recycled plastic bottles and a natural climate mitigation system that substitutes for air conditioning. The Italian Pavilion brings forward an all-encompassing vision emphasising reconfigurable architecture and circular design involving some of Italy’s most innovative companies.

The hulls are supported by more than 150 slender vertical steel pillars, each 27 metres (88 feet) high. In turn, they support a wave-shaped roof membrane made of ETFE pillows and a layer of perforated thin metal sheets that filter the sunlight. Seen from above, the hulls are coated in an innovative paint developed by painting specialist Boero Group. Modelling the Italian flag, the green, white, and red colours form what might be the largest ‘tricolor’ in Italy’s history.
