Í 14. skipti verða Terra Madre og Salone del Gusto í Torino frá 22. til 26. september, og aðalþema viðburðarins verður “regeneration” eða endursköpun. Eddi Mukiibi, varaforseti Slow Food samtakanna, segir:
“Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2022 will be a great occasion to explore the questions that the current environmental, climate and public health crisis have raised, not to mention the geopolitical one, and the various responses offered. Our goal is to build a collective vision for the future of food that goes beyond political boundaries, putting the focus back on the communities who feed us and our relationships with them, as well as the wider connection between humanity and the rest of the natural world,” continues Mukiibi.
The regeneration of the event starts from its location. “We have chosen Parco Dora, a large park beyond the city center which stands on the site of an old steelworks. It’s a powerful symbol for the city and for Terra Madre, showing how ex-industrial areas can be transformed into green spaces, for the good of people and the planet”, concludes Mukiibi.
Regeneration is a transversal theme for Slow Food. Just as a tree that has lost one of its branches can grow it back, so soil that has been impoverished by monocultures and chemical inputs can be regenerated thanks to farming practices that nourish the land, ensuring nutritious crops, diversified diets and dignified livelihoods.
