Andrea Bocelli in Milano


“Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life” is the chosen theme for 2015 Milano EXPO. Exhibitors assembling from 144 countries and over 20 million visitors expected to visit Milan from May 1 to 31 October, Eutelsat is official and exclusive satellite partner.

Eutelsat will leverage its innovative technologies and worldwide footprint to support communications requirements for the Expo Milano community. It will start with global distribution of a concert on the Piazza Duomo with Andrea Bocelli on April 30, the eve of the official opening. Using uplinking services provided by Globecast, capacity on eight Eutelsat satellites will beam live and free coverage of the concert filmed in High Definition by Rai, Italy’s national broadcaster.

Using the most advanced video technologies, Eutelsat has also filmed a unique sequence in Ultra HD that will be made available to Expo Milano 2015 and broadcast through its satellites. The new video is of Giotto’s famous frescos in the Basilica of St Francis in Assisi, including scenes of food and nature that reflect the main theme of Expo Milano 2015. These new Ultra HD images represent the highest quality video record of the genius of Italian art.
