The round tables of “La Cucina Italiana” on sustainability, biodiversity and new forms of consumption are back on 26 September with four online events. For a better planet
How will we grow, harvest, taste in the future? How can we start from the (good) table to support the planet and its biodiversity? Or even our health?
They come back, from September 26, the appointments of “La Cucina Italiana” on the digital platform ilfuturocheciaspetta.gordon-ramsay-recipe.com.
The initiative is part of the journey through which our newspaper nominates the kitchen of the home as a World Heritage Site. The theme, more than ever, is the sustainability and respect for biodiversity (of which Italy is the richest in Europe). We discuss it, in 4 round tables, moderated by our editorial staff, with great experts in the sector: chefs, managers of the food and wine world and exponents of the cultural world. Are you curious? Connect and follow us on this delightful adventure.
In the meantime, a brief preview for you on our guests and on the topics we will address.
Between villages and villages
Angela Odone, of the editorial staff of “La Cucina Italiana” will talk about it with Davide Rampello (curator, manager, university professor and artistic director of Fidenza Village, part of The Bicester Village Shopping Collection) and with Massimo Spigaroli (chef and patron of the Antica Corte Pallavicina in Polesine Parmense, one Michelin star).
At the center of the discussion is a trend and a desire: that of more humane habits after the pandemic. Small villages are the realities that have proven to be more solid and supportive, guardian of sustainability and biodiversity and ideal center for a new (ancient) form of economy and culture.
The pleasure of doing together
A title that tastes like team building for a chat about the wonderful and highly titled Parma, the subject of this meeting moderated by food and wine critics and signature of the Fiammetta Fadda newspaper: the title of "Italian Capital of Culture" joins those of Parma Capital of the Food Valley and, since 2015, in Parma, the First Unesco Creative Italian City for gastronomy. They will be with us Christian House, councilor for trade, tourism and the Unesco project of the Municipality of Parma e Anna Maria Meo, general director of the Regio Teatro di Parma. From masterpieces of art to trattorias passing through a world-famous culinary academy, the step is short, you will see.
Resilient agriculture and farmers
What does it mean to produce organic food today? What is precision agriculture? Why is nutriceutics the new frontier of our health? And, again, what is an eco-resort and how can a garden save the environment as well as surround our table. Sara Tieni from the editorial staff of our magazine will ask these and many other questions to Massimo Monti, CEO of Alce Nero, for 40 years in the organic and Mario Faro, CEO of Radicepura and Piante Faro, a horticultural company, leader in Europe in the sector of Mediterranean plants, as well as creator of the Radicepura Garden Festival.
Sacred as wine
Danilo Poggio, our wine editor, finally explores the theme of “The sacredness of wine. From food to conviviality ". With him two guests with very different professional backgrounds: Giovanna Frosini, professor of history of the Italian language and Academic of the Crusca, e Beniamino Garofalo, CEO of Santa Margherita Gruppo Vinicolo who will tell us about great insights such as the one from which their great Pinot Grigio was born. But we will also talk about how consumers are changing, increasingly ethical and aware. Because it is from awareness, first of all, and from love and gratitude for what surrounds us that great works for the future are born.
