Groundbreaking in Milan: Construction of the Swiss Pavilion has Begun

The construction of the Swiss Pavilion began on September 12, 2014 with a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of EXPO 2015 in Milan. At the festive ceremony, Presence Switzerland, an administrative unit of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, symbolically presented the general contractor, NUSSLI, with a granite chip from the Gotthard massif. Switzerland also unveiled the mystery surrounding the Pavilion and revealed the foods with which its four towers will be filled: Water, salt, coffee and apple rings. The selected products stand for sustainable, responsible, innovative and tradition-conscious Switzerland.
