The Biodiversity House returns in its usual location in the Courtyard of the Maschili.
Come and explore conferences exploring various topics, aperitifs delving into the knowledge of numerous products originating from meadows, and evening film screenings.
Cheese and health
The Biodiversity House is made possible with the support of Reale Mutua, an official sponsor of Slow Food Italia and a main partner of Cheese 2023. Since 2018, Slow Food has established a collaboration with Reale Mutua on the theme of food and health, which has intensified over the years and led to the publication of the position paper “Our Food, Our Health“.
This partnership allows us to pay particular attention to the healthiness of pasture products. Choosing a cheese made from the milk of animals fed on pasture means favoring a product with a low environmental impact and an Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio below 4, sometimes even equal to 1. The milk that originates them is rich in aromas, antioxidant molecules, and good fatty acids such as CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). Choosing cheese of this kind allows us to contribute not only to our own health but also to the health of the planet.
Here’s what you can find in this space during the four days of Cheese:
- Conferences: To further develop the reflection on permanent meadows, pastures, and mountain ecosystems, and to listen to the stories of people whose work protects biodiversity and animal welfare.
- Aperitif on the grass. To experience firsthand – or rather with your taste buds – the products obtained from meadows and pastures rich in biodiversity: not only cheeses but also honeys, herbal liqueurs…
- Cheese on Screen: To virtually visit meadows and pastures and discover their beauty.
