In its tent, Turkey shares its cultural and historical tradition of water exploitation in an exhibition divided into four distinct spaces. The first three spaces are exhibition spaces, while the fourth is designed as a multifunctional space. The first room. Water, source of life', presents the country as a territory impregnated by water through a series of natural landscapes defined by the presence or absence of this element. The second, 'Sources for Life', illustrates the heritage of the exploitation of the liquid element, both from the point of view of major infrastructures and from the social, artistic, political and mythological point of view. In 'Water and Life' for all, the work carried out in Turkey and the projects intended for the future to recover and exploit the water resources available in your regions that suffer from scarcity were exposed. This atmosphere shifts from sobriety and tradition to modernity in order to give the visitor the impression of living in the present and the near future through colours, light and sound. Finally, 'The pleasures of water', which punctuates the end of the Turkish exhibition, houses a tourist information area and an Ebru painting workshop, in addition to a souvenir area for the visitor.
