The Principality will be taking part in Expo 2020 Dubai, which has been postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus crisis.

The news broke at the height of the coronavirus crisis. Like the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, like the Euro 2020 football championship, the World Expo Dubai has been postponed until 2021. The universal exposition will now be held from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022, but will still be known as “EXPO 2020 Dubai”.

For Monaco, which will still take part in this major event, the objective is unchanged: to surprise the international public. The Monaco Pavilion, which is expected to be completed by late summer 2020, is a response to the Dubai 2020 theme: “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”.

“Its architecture draws inspiration from a kaleidoscope which is reminiscent of Monaco’s Rocher and reflects its multiple facets,” explains Albert Croesi, the Managing Director of Monaco Inter Expo and General Commissioner of the Monaco Pavilion. And the slogan? “Monaco 360°, a world of opportunities”.

So the Monaco Pavilion, which is in the shape of a polygon, will be covered in photovoltaic panels to reflect the actions taken by the Principality on the energy transition and environmental protection.

Since 1851, universal expositions have offered each country an opportunity to showcase its technical innovations, its artists and its expertise, or to organise celebratory events.

Monaco first participated in a universal exposition in 1873, in Vienna.

The Monegasque pavilion designed for the last expo, in Milan in 2015, was recycled and turned into a multipurpose training centre in Loumbila (Burkina Faso)..
