The Welcome Carlo Petrini

To our friends in Monaco Slow Food Convivium.

In 1989, the founding manifesto of Slow Food Slow Food asserted that protects the right to pleasure. This position was dictated by the fact that, in our opinion, the gastronomic landscape was getting poorer: the products and techniques homologuaient disappeared.
The movement will soon celebrate its 25th anniversary, and we have come a long way. Sure, the food is always – and even more – in the center of our vision and our commitment; However, in the meantime, we linked to the concept of pleasure notions of justice and respect for the environment.
Producing and consuming food are activities that weigh heavily on the quality of life of people, the environment, communities.
As foodies, we can no longer confine ourselves to the sphere of pleasure. Slow Food must assume the situations of those who have no access to food, of those who see their own knowledge and traditions debased and humiliated every day of those who fight to conserve biological and cultural diversity.

In the last century we have lost 70% of plant and animal species, human impacts on the planet led to entire ecosystems destruction and the race to the industrialization of food production has produced immense damage, and that one billion people still suffer from hunger and malnutrition.
Today, our commitment must be marked with constant on good food, clean and fair.

Since 2004, the Terra Madre network brings together farmers, fishermen, farmers, artisans and processors who share experiences, knowledge, techniques and philosophies. Every two years, Terra Madre in Turin meets at the Salone del Gusto and represents the vanguard of this new vision of our movement. Network support and defend it: the future of our food and our planet goes through him.
