A culture-mixing stand to introduce entomophagy in Italy.
It is widely accepted that by 2050 the world will host 9 billion people. To accomodate this number, current food production will need toalmost double. Land is scarce and expanding the area devoted to farming is rarely a viable or sustainable option.
   Edible insects have always been a part of human diets, but in some societies there is a degree of distaste for their consumption. Insects offer a significant opportunity to merge traditional knowledge and modern science in both developed and developing countries.

Our kitchen proposes to mix different countries and cultures through materials, traditional technology and food. Terracotta is a meeting point for the African and the Italian tradition, as piadina (a typical italian street food) made out of insect flour can be.
We tried to introduce this alien food into our own tradition and culture taking care of our people sensitivity. This always caring for the environment, not only is the food higly substainable, in fact, the whole kitchen works without electric supply. Both the fridge and the plate work simply with the aid of water and coal.
