160 de ani de la prima expozitie mondială
Google sărbătoreşte 160 de ani de la prima expoziţie mondială, organizată la Londra în perioada 1 mai - 15 octombrie 1851










Prima expoziţie universală (denumită atunci Marea Expoziţie a Lucrărilor de Industrie a tuturor naţiunilor, din engleză The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations, sau Marea Expoziţie, denumită uneori Crystal Palace Exhibition cu referire la Palatul de Cristal, structura temporară în care a avut loc) a fost o expoziţie internaţională care a avut loc în Hyde Park, Londra, în perioada 1 mai - 15 octombrie 1851. Acesta a fost prima dintr-o serie de expoziţii World's Fair ale culturii şi industriei, care aveau să devină o caracteristică populară a secolului al XIX-lea.
Prima expoziţie universală a fost organizată de către Henry Cole şi Prinţul Albert, soţul monarhului în funcţie, Regina Victoria. Aici au fost numeroase figuri notabile ale timpului, printre care Charles Darwin, membri ai casei regale de Orléans sau scriitorii Charlotte Brontë, Lewis Carroll şi George Eliot.


Ţara Românească a fost prezentă cu o serie modestă de produse agricole şi industriale. Moldova a trimis mostre agricole autohtone, tipărituri şi litografii, (printre care şi o hartă a ţinuturilor locuite de românii din afara Moldovei şi un atlas lingvistic).

Today in history: May 1, 1851
The Great Exhibition (of the Works of Industry of all Continents) opens at the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London. The Great Exposition was a special manifestation of the Industrial Revolution. It was conceived as a way to advertise to the world the strides Great Britain had made in manufacturing  and engineering, but it became a showcase for products from all over the world and was inspiration for subsequent expositions. More than 14,000 exhibitors from around the world gathered in the Palace’s 990,000 square feet of exhibition space.
The Crystal Palace was conceived by Sir Joseph Paxton, and was completed within 17 weeks of actual construction time. It was a cast-iron and glass building 1,851 feet long, with an interior height of 108 feet.
