The Angolan Pavilion at Expo Milano is one of the visitor’s priorities. Its imposing structure covered by a carved wood structure with a large inscription “Angola” on the top of the façade facing the west entrance of the Decumano is a reference to the public. It seduces to a start of the Expo tour at our Pavilion. The extraordinary coverage by Italian media certainly contributed to this.
On September 6 the numbers underscored this impression: 20’040 visitors, from which 12’103 came in the first 6 hours. This is a new double record of the pavilion, after 129 days of the World Exhibition. An omen perhaps that the National Day of Angola on September 17 will be a success.
We are still in the European holiday period, Saturday 5, had already beaten the record of 9’524 in the first six hours. The average daily number of visitor has increased to 13’000 having been supplanted the previous daily maximum of 17’778 persons on August 29, ten days after having reached the previous maximum of 17’292.
