See Italy from the air

Free drone-view movie on maxi-screen.

Visitors, tourists and milanesi can watch a five metre-high, 360-degree screening of a 15-minute aerial view of the best of Italy, showing in a purpose-built structure in Milan’s Piazza Gae Aulenti during the whole of Expo 2015.

Dubbed “Panorama”, the initiative has been launched as one of the off-site attractions of the world exposition by a collaboration of public institutions headed by the city’s chamber of commerce.

The multi-sensory experience explores the links between nature, culture and craftsmanship, with examples of Italian excellence including design, fashion, food, cars and motorcycles.

Shot entirely by drones, the aerial footage shows Italian monuments and cities seen from above as never before. The aerials are interspersed with views of 250 of the greatest artworks held in Italian museums by artists such as Raphael, Leonardo, Giotto and Botticelli. Details of paintings, jewellery and other examples of Italian craftsmanship are shown alongside century-old vineyards, fashion shows, manufacturing companies and natural beauties.

Panorama is open free daily from 10.00 to 18.00.
