”The Expo Milano 2015 theme, Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, is a generous one, involving a great creative effort from all the countries. From this perspective, after visiting many others pavilions, I think The Romanian Pavilion is one of the first five pavilions at Expo Milano 2015, being very attractive by its beauty and design. I was impressed by the numbers of the visitors, who waited a hundreds metters line to enter the Pavilion and I think this is a very good news for Romania, because the Romanian Pavilion proved a magnetic place for many visitors. This great effort of creative and management work of Romanian Pavilion was not easy to achieve, thus I congratulate the management team, specially Romanian General Commissioner Georgian Ghervasie, for making the Romanian Pavilion one of the most visited in Expo Milano. I salute the organizers idea to promote these talented children, which presented to the world the Romanian traditions. Besides the generous theme of the Romanian Pavilion, I pleasantly noticed the excellent show of traditional romanian cuisine”, said the Mayor.

On the other hand, the day was with this great surprise, both for me and the visitors, offered by these talented littler artist from the group Mugurel de Vlasca. Their representation of the romanian tradition, culture and folklore attracted in a lot of visitors. We must continue to discover Romania, to discover such wonderful places as Neajlov Delta. We must discover our tradition, our civilization, our culture and preserve their pure forms which represent the genuine Romania – this is our mesage to the world at Expo Milano”, said Georgian Ghervasie.
