Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2020
October 8 - October 12
The organization of the 13th edition of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is already underway, and will be held in Turin, at Lingotto Fiere, from October 8–12, 2020.
The biggest international event dedicated to food, the environment, agriculture and food politics, organized by Slow Food, the Piedmont Region and the City of Turin presents visitors with a new layout of the exhibition space, revolutionizing the experience and multiplying the opportunities for visitors to get to know the people who work every day to shape the future of food in a more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable direction. A future for which Slow Food is calling to action all its activists, youth, producers, cooks, experts, academics, delegates and members who’ve participated in previous editions so they may contribute their ideas and proposals, projects and energy.
For the 2020 edition, Slow Food is designing a new geography based on ecosystems, with all their fragility and the concrete solutions that our network is putting into action around the world to save them. In this historic moment in which nationalism and borders are returning to the mainstream with their walls and barbed wire, the event space and visitor experience will reiterate the need openness, organized according to the environmental characteristics of different areas. By putting the political boundaries of the world map into the background, we give priority to the physical, ecological and cultural spheres, with food as the common thread, from its agricultural production right up to the sharing of cooked meals. 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.
