Terra Madre

Every year, in Turin, Italy, Slow Food organises the Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, which is the most important international event dedicated to food, environment, agriculture, and food politics.

It aims at gathering and promote small-scale farmers, breeders, fishers, and food artisans whose approach to food production protects the environment and communities. Academics, cooks, consumers, and youth groups join the movement as well.

This year we are celebrating Terra Madre from the 1st to the 10th of December. In this opportunity, the theme is “Back to the Roots: Food & Community”, inviting us all to come together around the table and share a meaningful meal with our communities.
