Feeding the planet, energy for life. This is the theme of Milan's 2015 Expo. How can this goal be achieved? Carlo Petrini, founder of Slow Food and leading international expert, answers our question. When food is produced at the industrial level, food eats us. Proximity farming allows consumers to become co-producers and to re-conquer their sovereignty over food. The 2015 Expo will create a global vegetable garden, and Milan will be the first city to develop a sustainable food system. An outpost of "good and clean taste" will be established in Parco Sud: fresh, seasonal, quality products to be consumed by the inhabitants of the city of cement.
