Salone del Gusto/Terra Madre – Turin
October 8 @ 8:00 am - October 12 @ 5:00 pm
For the 2020 edition, Slow Food is designing a new geography based on ecosystems. There will no longer be the classic division between exhibitors of the Italian and international market; instead, the exhibitors will be grouped according to ecosystems, giving visitors the chance to explore a new way of thinking about the geography of food:
The mountains and hilly areas, with the products and projects that seek to take care of them.
Coastal communities and inland waters, committed to the protection of the seas, rivers, lakes, sustainable fishing and the battle against pollution.
Urban areas and their relationship with the countryside via vegetable gardens, farmers’ markets and community-supported agriculture.
The plains, where acroecology is the answer to the problems caused by monocultures, desertification and deforestation.
These four macro-areas will bring together delegates and exhibitors from the Alps to the Andes, from the Northern Seas to the great rivers of Europe, from the nascent Slow Food villages to the smart cities, from the Po Valley to the African savanna.
More details to follow.
