The exhibition in Angola is based on the subject of the sustainable use of the country's rivers, with a tourist journey through the African country. During this journey, visitors learn more about this territory, its many ecosystems and micro-climates, and the different peoples who inhabit it. The pavilion has three different areas. The first is the Art and Culture Gallery, with exhibitions on the traditional and contemporary art of the peoples of Angola, which is located at the beginning of the pavilion entrance. The second area is the Gallery of Moments, which offers a tour of the wide variety of eco-systems found in the country, from the grove to the savannah, passing through waterfalls and the desert. Finally, there is the Productive Sector Gallery, which houses the country's companies and research institutes. The visitor thus follows a route that takes in an infinite number of landscapes, and comes into contact with the rain, the source of the river and the lake, until it flows into the sea. At the same time, the peoples and cultures (including myths and beliefs) of Angola are exposed, as well as the potentialities of the soil and subsoil of each of the eco-geographical zones.
