Food, technologies and innovations related to the sector of food and farming were the main themes of Expo 2015. Indeed, during the World Food Day proclaimed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), which is held every 16 October, the environmental organization Greenpeace has set up a suggestive photo exhibition in Corso Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, to promote sustainable crops.

'Food for Life', which will be open to the public until october 29, shows twenty photographs taken by British photographer Peter Caton. Faces of women, men and children, fields and small farmers' markets to document the realities in six countries: Brazil, China, Kenya, France, California and Cambodia. The event aims to celebrate the ecological agriculture in opposition to the system based on monocultures, GMOs and the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

The exhibition is staged outdoors and for structures' lighting are used solar panels.
