L'UNIVERSITÀ DI SCIENZE
If Italy is recognized as a cradle of gastronomic culture, we can say without fear of contradiction that Piedmont’s heritage of food traditions is among the richest on the peninsula. The Langa and Roero hill districts have conserved the region’s variety of flavors and saved it from the standardization of the contemporary world.
It’s no coincidence that an association like Slow Food, the most important institution in the world for the promotion and defense of food culture based on respect for the environment and human rights, should spring up here. Inspired precisely by Slow Food, the University of Gastronomic Sciences, is hidden away among the hills of southern Piedmont. Every year it attracts young people from all over the world, all mindful and motivated to use enthusiasm and creativity to renew production chains and distribution and commercialization methods to bring good, clean and fair food to our tables.
UNIVERSITY OF GASTRONOMIC SCIENCES
Young people from all over the world come to Pollenzo every year to discover flavors, gastronomic excellence and the best production techniques.
It was here, among the hills in the heart of rural Piedmont, that the story of Slow Food, the association that puts “good, clean and fair” food at the center of the cultural debate, began. And it was from an idea of Slow Food’s that the project to restore the entire Pollenzo complex was born.
