The first part describes the key players involved in the organization of the event and in the post-event phase, and it comments on the results of the exhibition, focusing on its material and non-material legacy. It also focuses on the role played by Milan in the national and international scenario. The second part describes some of the projects, currently known and imagined for the post-Expo: the creation of a research center (Human Technopole), the transfer of the scientific departments of the University of Milan and of the Galeazzi hospital. In addition to the relationships among the different stakeholders, some of the variables are described, mainly of a political nature that could affect the post-Expo implementation and success.
