ACTLD Tree Of Life Italian Pavilion Expo 2015
“Tree Of Life” At Italian Pavilion Of Expo 2015
In the framework of EXPO 2015, hosted by Milan in Italy from May 1rst until October 31rst 2015, ACTLD was commissioned by Balich Worldwide Shows to create and develop the visual & lighting design of an iconic installation: the "Tree of Life" / "Albero della Vita".
The project "Tree of Life" was designed by Marco Balich and studio Gioforma, artistic director of the Italian Pavilion of Expo 2015. Balich was inspired by the drawing Michelangelo Buonarroti created for the piazza del Campidoglio in Rome. The structure was built by Orgoglio Brescia. Koert Vermeulen joined the creative team as Lighting Designer & Director of Mise-en-Scene.
The tree with it's vertical, symbolic gesture is both an Italian and international icon representing the Nature as a source of life, but also symbolizing the many roots and metaphorical branches of the Italian excellence. This iconic structure symbolically offers its seeds and fruits to Italy and the entire world.
Placed in front of the Italian Pavilion, the monument will be installed in the middle of Lake Arena, where visitors will be immersed into breathtaking events planned for this pavilion.

The "Tree of Life" interactive structure with an inner skeleton made of steel and an outer cover in wood, is over 30 meters high. On top of this gigantic trunk stands a hat that simulates the intertwined branches of a tree, with a diameter of 45 meters. The visitors will not only enjoy the spectacle from the exterior, but will aslo have a chance to climb inside of the structure to discover its surprises.
