Our Food
Our Planet
Our Future

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is the largest international event dedicated to good, clean and fair food, the environment and food politics.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto was first held in 1996 and is one of the world’s most important events dedicated to artisan and small-scale food and wine producers as well as a forum of exchange for producers and consumers from around the world.  It is the biggest international event dedicated to good, clean and fair food, the environment and food politics. Since 1996, it brings hundreds of thousands of visitors to Turin from around the world, as well delegates from the Slow Food network, companies, activists, experts and journalists.

The 2020 edition aims to explore the way forward for the future of food, and therefore the future of our planet, and to show us how we can enact change together, putting ideas, proposals, projects and energy on the table.
