Since its first edition in 1851, the Universal Exposition has been a medium to show how far mankind has come. Now it is the turn of Milan to be the host of such an important international event. Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life is the theme that Italy has chosen for this upcoming edition. Therefore, from May 1st to October 31st a worldwide reflection on the links between nutrition, technology and the environment will take place in our minds.
Italy is, in fact, a perfect place to start this reflection, having in mind its rich and varied gastronomic tradition. During these 6 months it is expected that 20 million visitors will come to Italy, so we’d like to take this opportunity to invite you all, who may take a tour around the main Italian cities, to include Florence and Verona in your schedules, two modern cities, yet full of history, culture and tradition.
One was the birthplace of geniuses like Michelangelo and Dante Alighieri; the other was the set of 3 plays by William Shakespeare, including the celebrated Romeo and Juliet. Il Salviatino, at the side of Fiesole’s hill, in Florence, and its sister property, Palazzo Victoria, in Verona, invite you to have a taste of Tuscany and Veneto, as part of your exploration of Italian food culture.
