Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto 2012
Diversity and a global perspective are at the heart of Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto
. Delegates and visitors come from all around the world, representing the various communities, cultures, histories, struggles, and solutions united under the banner of good, clean, and fair. Historically, Terra Madre has also been an opportunity for Slow Food USA to broaden and diversify our network by bringing different folks together - from the person who is new to Slow Food to the person who is a long-time supporter. Salone del Gusto is the world's largest international marketplace for good, clean, and fair producers. Together, these events are an important avenue for those of us from the U.S. to realize ourselves in the context of and in relation with a truly global movement and community.
This year, Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto will come together as a unified event open to the public in Turin, Italy from October 25-29, 2012. The International Congress, which is a closed conference for Slow Food leaders worldwide that happens every five years, will take place concurrently in Turin from October 27-29, 2012.
