New Slow Food Presidia at Cheese 2019

Cheese wouldn't be the world's most important festival dedicated to raw milk cheese without the presence of Slow Food Presidia, the projects which protect traditional techniques, local breeds, artisanal products and rural landscapes. There are more than a hundred dairy Presidia around the world, and at Cheese 2019 there'll be 49 Italian Presidia and 10 more from other countries present with their own stands. You can find them in the appropriately named Presidia Street, between Via Principi di Piemonte and Via Marconi in Bra.

The four seasons – Tasting summer and winter in a cheese at Casa Lawrence

When I ask Loreto Pacitti of Casa Lawrence what the greatest satisfaction of his work is, he tells me confidently: "A call like this one, which makes me realize the interest in what we do. It makes me feel better understood." We're equals, then. One of the greatest satisfactions of my job is being able to talk to people who work with passion, a spirit of sacrifice and joy, and telling their stories.
