The central nucleus of this section will be an area reserved for spaceflight containing a celebration of the Makers of the Apollo Programme, which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary (culminating in July 2019 with the anniversary of the first landing on the Moon) and the Italian makers who with typical ingenuity and art realised the first satellites in the San Marco array.
  • Agrifood and Agritech: sensors and new digital technologies applied to agriculture and food, this year there will again be an area dedicated not only to food farming but also technology in the sector.
