The well-known 24OreNews.it Event Portal (section “Italia da Gustare”) has attracted our attention recently by publishing a challenging message (http://www.24orenews.it/home/in-primo-piano/14096-fame-d%E2%80%99orgoglio-prima-e-dopo-expo) from Riccardo Garosci, President of Miur Committee “School and Food”, Expo Milano 2015, and Coordinator of the discussion table working on Food Education of the Charter of Milan (Table 14: “Food education: an investment for the future”): “Hunger of Self-Pride” - Before and after EXPO” (“Fame d’Orgoglio: Prima e dopo EXPO”). Riccardo Garosci spoke eloquently in support of the culture of food, the food education, the fight against waste, the respect for the environment and for Italy:
<< … Hungry for good “things” we didn’t have for some time: optimism, good image (individual and collective), and culture… There were six months starting slowly but growing irresistibly. The enthusiasm, but even just the curiosity of 21 million visitors… But a special thought goes to the boys of EXPO. The schools whose teachers with their passionate students… Volunteers, tireless and smiling. To the young people who worked in the Pavilions and in the Cluster… For showing and sharing with the world that an Expo will leave in the Charter of Milan its intangible heritage: the culture of food, the food education, the fight against waste, the respect for the environment and for our country…>>
Allow us to remember within this special context that Romania’s Friend Riccardo Garosci, was an inspiring Keynote Speaker for “SHOP 2015” Conference (May 3-6, EXPO Milano 2015), and he visited Romania’s food productions exhibition stands at Tuttofood (the International Food and Agriculture Show which started two days after the official opening of Expo Milano 2015).
