Abstract

This paper aims to provide a contribution to a comparative analysis of the language, contents and meanings of construction and communication of the combined sets of iconographies related to the Milan Expo 2015 and Milan 1906. Both exhibitions are also noted for the symbolic imagery they adopted; both were unusual, surprising and a little curious in their respective contexts. Metlicovitz’s poster from 1906 clearly alluded to Carducci’s Inno a Satana and to the myth of progress in a decisively secular and progressive tone: the Foody mascot recalled in popular style a very cultured and elitist quotation from Arcimboldo, but reworked by one of the most famous communication multinationals, Disney
