ATLANTE DEL CIBO
DI TORINO METROPOLITANA
Many cities in Europe and Extra-Europe are setting the goal to realise new policies dedicated to food themes.
In Italy, few cities are interested in food policies. Thanks to the "Milan urban food policy pact", Milan is the first city in Italy to set the guidelines to realise urban food policies. Until now, 159 cities worldwide subscribed to this pact. Turin is one of them, and the Atlas of Food project set a new step to improve Turin's food programmes.
Communicate food themes becomes essential to build an equal and sustainable future for everyone. As a part of the Atlas of Food's research team, I developed an identity that highlights and enhances the Turin food system's complexity, 'Opening Up' the city in a peculiar way.
Atlante del Cibo di Torino Metropolitana - Atlas of Food - was born from the Turin Capital of Food, inside the Third Strategic Plan of the City 'Turin Metropolis 2025'. This project is developed in collaboration between the Turin Chamber of Commerce, the Polytechnic University of Turin, the University of Turin and the University of Gastronomic Science, and aim to produce new knowledge to increase the visibility of the Turin food system.
Since the inauguration day at the Cavallerizaa Reale in Turin on the 29th of May 2017, the Atlas of food reached substantial visibility. This project hopes for greater collaboration from the food system actors in the nearest future. Engage with civil society through more reports and events will become essential to implement the local food policies.
