Symbolism of the Mill of Life:

The symbolism of the Albanian Pavilion, the “Mill of Life”, designed by the Artistic Curator, Master Edi Hila, conveyed many meanings of a complex reality that comes from a long history of difficulties and struggles to survive. A dignified nation that exists nowadays and that strives to integrate into the dimensions of the time in which we live. Albanian society is a society that enables people of different religions to live in complete harmony, a virtue on which a morality has been built and that keeps Albanians united.

In Albania, where coexistence is not cemented by a common religion, the unifying “third” is not left out. On the contrary, as a must, due to the constitutional requirements in addition to freedom and equality, culture has been at the center as a factor of unity and harmonious compatibility between those different (differences). Harmony is exactly a relationship, which means a provision versus something else. Culture is a factor of unity and unification, and what is important to stress for Albanians, is specifically that such unification was created voluntarily and naturally.

Societies are destined to fail if they are not supported by a force that does not depend on economics and politics, and this force, of a cultural nature, has been religion for many centuries. Its power was the belief in the same God or the same constellation of Gods, as an institutional structure and organization of the force that ruled the state. 

From the point of view of religious coexistence, we find the mill in the philosophy of the two main beliefs for Albanians: in the imaginations of the manger of the birth, the mill is designed precisely to symbolize the bread, and the bread as the body of Christ; and also in Islam, the perfection of the mill personifies in sacred scripts, humanity between the two wetlands guided by the axis, Allah.

 

The meaning of the Mill in an international dimension:

          Taking into consideration the fact that the symbol is presented in an international arena, the analysis of the myth of the mill and the flowing water is destined to match with world myths, to easily absorb the universal message.            The mill is an important node in the symbolism of “movement, transformation and life itself”. Milling grains use water and wind (giving the latter a positive value), two vital elements of nature, show the flow of time, as wheat is ground into white flour and “sacrificed” for bread which is a symbol of new life- it is the daily bread and at the same time the spiritual food. The slogan “Food for the Planet and Energy for Life”, as the mill that produces food and energy, can be also considered fulfilled. From a simple mechanical process of mill movement, the wheel of time that “grinds” physical life is also analyzed. A life-sacrifice process that generates Immortal Life: the transformation of raw material into flour, and then into bread, in a constant motion.

          The tradition and the innovation, exactly the two beams bearing the concept of the Albanian Pavilion itself, are explored graphically in the dedicated space:         

  • Culture and traditions are outlined through the Mill that grinds cereals, produces food, ensures living, coexistence and harmony;
  • The future and sustainable development, expressed through Digital Concepts focus on Biodiversity, Gastronomy, Organic Agriculture, Rural Development, Culinary Traditions of different provinces, Hospitality Dockets, Occidental influences on nutrition and cooking, change and culture of new tastes, laboratory research on soil quality to cultivate rare plants that may have advantages in the future with climate change, sustainable development for those typical cultivations and Albanian peculiarities.

 

Albania National Day on World Expo:

Day organized under the grace of Mother Teresa, with the twofold mission to not only celebrate a figure that is a motive of pride for every Albanian, but also to emphasize her mission, of a dedicated woman who is often referred to the most powerful woman in the world , as with her heart she has nourished the poor all over the world. Day of Albania was marked by a series of cultural concerts, the Folklore Ensemble of TKOB, the Ensemble of Arbëresh “Roses of Arbër”; tastings of typical Albanian slow-food.

The history and documents in audiovisual format, made available by the Religious Communities in the country, is exhibited under the artistic supervision of the curators Edi Hila and Zef Paci.

  • The exhibition evokes the contribution of the Clergy in Albania, before, during and after the dictatorship period, their sacrifice for generations and promotes interfaith coexistence, as a distinctive feature of the Albanian society. The exhibition “BESIM”, as well as a series of other accompanying activities, were organized within the framework of the first visit of Pope Francis to Albania.

The presence of over 12 Universities and Institutions of education and science, policy-making and law enforcement, distinguished the Expo Congress from the start as the most successful event among similar initiatives organized to date in Tirana and perhaps broader.

It involved at least 80 speakers and researchers with concrete lectures, domestic exhibition companies and international companies, mainly from Italy, representation authorities from Kosovo, North Macedonia (Ministry of Environment and Tourism; Ministry of Environment of Kosovo; Ministry of Environment of North Macedonia; KLSH Supreme Audit Institution- Albania / Kosovo etc).

Over 10,000 attendees, pupils and students actively engaged as participants and volunteers, with an interest in the concerned fields, from recycling to energy production / recovery from waste. Education and Training in the field of environment, will be seen with priority and care now, and this thanks to the large amount of topics and study spaces in which students were involved during the event. Focusing on important subjects, analysis and case studies, and above all close observation of the realities created in the country, technologies according to homologated standards and responsible development, enabled the WBWS achieve the preset goal.

The future of this initiative is now pre-programmed and will keep pace with the development and momentum that will have the sector of environmental protection, responsible business, sustainable development, renewable energy sources, etc.

Founded in the distant year 1995, more than two decades ago in one of the most prominent centers of our exhibition industry, in Munich, CEFA had certainly a motive and drive to be created as an organization. It was established to strengthen cooperation between the main actors of the exhibition and trade fair industry in Central Europe, but also to assist other entities and organizations, geographically members of Southeast Europe, whose countries aspire European integration. The dream of a United Europe had already conquered everyone and every country already felt European. The mission of our industry significantly contributes to each mission of integration, friendship, development initiatives, cultural exchanges for peoples and nations. After almost 22 years of ups and downs, the united Europe witnessed both unity and the will to open and resize, as well as numerous issues, mainly related to economic development inequality and appropriateness for the implementation of fiscal policies, and unifying policies in general.

  • Note: Palace of Brigades – the symbol building where the past, present and future of architectural heritage meet. Palace of Brigades, reflects the contribution of Italian architects who for the design and implementation have worked in Albania in the years 1930 – 1940.. It was first conceived by architect Giulio Berté as King Zog Royal Villa, and further completed by Gherard Bosio as a military residence. Today it is known as the Palace of Brigades, and is the main residence of the Albanian Government receptions.
