DEERFIELD BEACH, FL -- The Mapei Group, parent company of Mapei SpA and the U.S. subsidiary Mapei Corp., has become a sponsor of the U.S. Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015. Mapei participated in this innovative project by providing the best solutions and sustainable responses to the various issues that have arisen in the construction of the pavilion.

"Mapei Corporation is proud to be a sponsor of the USA Pavilion," said Luigi Di Geso, President and CEO of Mapei Americas. "This world fair underscores the vital importance of having plentiful food for all the people on our planet. Mapei fully supports the efforts of nations to work together in order to feed the world."

"The USA Pavilion is a unique building of its kind," said Charlie K. Faas, CEO of Friends of the USA Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015. "It is a multi-floor structure characterized by open spaces, transparency and accessibility. It evokes the lines of the traditional American barn. Guiding visitors through a series of stimulating spaces, paths and exhibitions, the USA Pavilion is an experience of 'edutainment' developed to entertain and inform. Each element of the pavilion tells tales and stories about innovation, technology, variety and ingenious Americans. It communicates the story, intense and diverse, of our national agriculture. This is why the support of an international company like Mapei, engaged in a continuous process of innovation in materials and solutions for the construction industry, is important to us."
