Terra Madre is a worldwide Slow Food festival to unite our food, our planet and our future.
Physical and digital events run from October 2020 – April 2021
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. Through a mix of physical and digital events, we’re coming together to save local food cultures, and put the spotlight on the importance of ecosystems beyond political borders. From October 2020 to April 2021.
The New Event
Imagine it as a long journey: we depart on October 8, 2020, with a rich calendar of activities that will evolve both online, on this platform and offline, in events around the world. We’ll continue this journey for six months, with new digital content and numerous physical events across oceans and timezones. We’ll finally arrive at our destination in April 2021, with the Slow Food International Congress, bringing with us all the ideas for the future of food that we’ve collected during the journey.
