Foodprint tells the birth and history of the Mediterranean Diet and examines the reasons why it is so important in our daily lives. It is a story of sustainability, health and cultural exchange, it is an exhibition that explains how simple peasant food has always been considered the healthiest, both for our bodies and for the planet.
The CUP - Single Reservation Center answers every day from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The project brings together Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Croatia and Cyprus and is based on the shots of five European photographers who bring to life ancient practices that have been perpetrated throughout the Mediterranean for centuries. Parallel activities include workshops for teenagers dedicated to Food Photography, educational programs, documentary screenings, food and cooking events, and culinary walks.
The aim of Foodprint is to inspire change and reconnect European audiences with the past of a region that, though scarred by poverty and hunger, has
created the healthiest and most sustainable diet in the world.
The exhibition, which will travel across Europe between 2022 and 2024, uses photography contemporary to engage visitors in a multisensory exploration of the Mediterranean Diet. The color photographs, taken by five European photographers in Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Croatia and Cyprus, capture dramatically contrasting landscapes, from isolated villages and mountain locations to urban centers, exploring diverse themes: sustainability, identity, family, community, cuisine, agriculture, health, poverty and creativity.
