As Italian historian Piero Bevilacqua wrote, “the practice of transhumance, in Calabria, is one of the oldest and longest-lasting forms of natural economy. As in much of the Mediterranean countryside, it must have arisen – like other forms of horizontal transhumance between mountains and plains at the same latitudes – from the need to provide cattle with adequate agrarian and climatic conditions all year round.” 

Here we dedicate a Dinner Date to the tradition of transhumance in Calabria with chefs from the Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance from the north, center and south of this vast region: 

Buy your Dinner Date ticket now and prepare to experience all the goodness that cheese can offer! Come and discover the multiple connections between the animal kingdom and the work of herders, cheesemakers and affineurs. Tickets are on sale online until September 16. During the days of the event any free places will be on sale at the Event Reception.

In line with current regulations, the events at Cheese 20201 are reserved exclusively for visitors in possession of an EU Digital COVID Certificate (also known as a Green Pass).
