Welcome to the Consul General of Italy in Nice
Serena LIPPI DELLA TORRE
Consul General of Italy in Nice
Consul General of Italy in Nice since September 2013, I was greeted with much friendship and warmth in this beautiful city. The three Departments of my consular jurisdiction are rich in history and memories of Italian culture and our community is very large and present. Italy is also the first economic partner of this region of France.
I know Slow Food movement was born in Bra (Cuneo) founded by Carlo Petrini, and I was lucky to discover the very active members of the Slow Food Convivium Monaco French Riviera.
I also had the pleasure of being invited to the Atelier of Taste in Menton, wonderful showcase of Italian excellence in the agro food sector and food and wine.
For the Milan Expo 2015, with the theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”, our country will have the great opportunity to capitalize on its expertise in the areas of food security, environmental protection, safeguarding the traditions, local products, recipes of yesteryear, as well as allow all to learn the culture of a healthy and correct diet, which is also in the Slow Food goals.
I am grateful Slow Food and his team and wish you good work.
