The form of the pavilion is based on associations – it does not try to explicitly show its origin. It does not attempt to be a big oast house or hop poles or cypress rows. It does not copy the image of a pergola, nor is it a fence or a barn. It does not attempt to evoke any direct references. And yet… This design is an attempt at creating something both Polish and Italian, close to both countries’ agrarian culture, close to the custom of having meals or feasting in an apple orchard or in a vineyard, close to the ambience of the fruit and vegetable market. A wooden beam, a plank, linen cloth, cold cement floor are attributes of rusticity, perceived positively, just like rusticity and agrarian culture themselves. Sunrays playing on floors and on fabric suspended overhead, waving between see-through, openwork structures of the pavilion refer to Italian optimism and joy of life, and the deep shade of the entrance area carries a promise of rest, relief from heat and from fatigue of wandering through the EXPO grounds.
