September 18th at 15:00 in your time zone

Free event

There are 349 Slow Food Presidia in Italy, all of them collected together in a book L’Atlante gastronomico dei Presìdi (The Gastronomic Atlas of the Presidia), a monumental new work from Slow Food Editore.

The Atlas is a journey across the Italian peninsula through vegetable species, animal breeds, breads, cheeses and more. It’s not a simple list of delicacies, but a mosaic of knowledge, the expression of a political project which puts the producer communities at the center. The Presidia safeguard the land and an intangible heritage of virtuous examples of local economies and environmental sustainability.

For each Presidium product the Atlas tells us its sensory characteristics, seasonality, farming practices and culinary uses. There’s also a list of their names and addresses, so you can go and discover the stories and flavors of artisanal Italian gastronomy for yourself.

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). Each event has a maximum attendance of 35 people, and is organized on a first come, first served basis. Arriving at least 15 minutes before the beginning of the event is advised in order to ensure a place.
