It is called "Belvedere in Città" (Belview in the City) and it is the project which will allow to follow, through the use of drones, the advancement of the works in the Exhibition building site of Expo 2015. The initiative has been presented by Piero Galli, General Director Event Management of Expo 2015 and by Sandro Dionisi, Engineering and TILab Director for Telecom Italia.

The Belvedere project will start in September and will allow to follow the final phases of the finishing of the works, giving each week images from up above of the building sites which will be transmitted within the Expo Gate, on websites and social channels of Expo 2015 and Telecom Italia. The drones used have 6 high power electric engines and are controlled by an on-board eletronic system which is able to maintain the drones stable even in difficult meteorological situations. Each device as a GPS system which is able of keeping it steady in one place chosen for taking the film. The system has a video transmission which is able of visualising on land, the image taken by the camera on board so as to allow the correct composition of the frames.

The Belvedere in the city initiative has been illustrated during the inauguration of the new multifunctional space TIM4Expo, set-up at the Triennale by Expo Milano 2015 and Telecom Italia in collaboration with Samsung so as to present the innovations and previews of the services and solutions that the two Official Global Partners of the Universal Exhibition have created and will make available for the Digital Smart City of Expo. IM4Expo is a 120 metre squared space that represents a meeting point for all the partners and that can also be used to host exhibitions, cultural events, meetings on the theme of food, sustainability and the excellencies of the Made in Italy.
