Night view of the Pavilion of Italy with its scupltures on roof, Expo 67, Montréal, Québec




"Le Pavillon de l'Italie à l'Expo 67 ----- En terme d'architecture, le toit du pavillon est une voile couchée. Le Pavillon entier semble flotter dans l'air. Sur le toit, trois sculptures symbolisent les trois secteurs d'exposition du Pavillon: la Poésie, les Moeurs et le Progrès. / Italian pavilion at Expo....... the most outstanding architectural feature of the Italian pavilion is its sloping roof which soars independent of the underlying structures. Three symbolic sculptures which also summarize the whole interior exhibit stand in full view upton the roof."--Description.
