Bra, Italy

September 20th at 14:00 in your time zone

Free event

Biodiversity and intangible cultural heritage meet in a project where food is at the center of restoring value to an area: the Geoportal of food culture in Basilicata.

Food culture is a fundamental good to safeguard and promote for the good of the ecosystem and community memory. The Geoportal of food culture is a step in this direction, a project promoted by the Central Institute for Intangible Heritage and financed by National Program for Culture and Development of which Slow Food is a partner. A project that aims to research and promote the intangible heritage tied to food, starting in Basilicata.

At Cheese we present this project and offer a preview of some of the tools being used to promote this heritage: narrative videos that feature cheeses from Basilicata and the stories of the people and communities that make them, as well as the landscapes and traditions connected to them.

At the end of the event there’ll be tasting of traditional products from Basilicata.

In line with current regulations, events at Biodiversity House at Cheese 2021 are reserved exclusively for visitors in possession of a Digital COVID Certificate (also known as a Green Pass).
