As I write these lines, it is exactly fifty years since the Universal and International Exposition in Brussels closed its gates on October 19, 1958.  The EXPO 58, as the show became widely known, was the first “world fair” in almost twenty years, envisioned as a showcase of universal cooperation between nations and a record of humanity’s progress since the immense destructions of World War II.
