San Marino: small place, big heart

The Republic of San Marino, the world's smallest and oldest republic, will display a full-sized reproduction of its Statue of Liberty at the 2010 World Expo.

The country signed its participation contract with the organizer yesterday, confirming it would exhibit the statue at the center of a 324-square-meter area inside a joint pavilion for European countries.

The country, with a territory of 61 square kilometers inside the heart of Italy, will also spotlight episodes of its history, its unusual institutional system with two heads of state and government, as well as its culture, tourism and economy.

A multi-projection video will show San Marino's characteristics, history, traditions, landscape, tourist attractions and citizens' lifestyle, according to Mauro Maiani, San Marino's commissioner-general for the Expo.

Ding Hao, deputy director general of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination, thanked San Marino for its Expo support.
