The fourth edition of the “Week of Italian Cuisine in the world” , the event designed and coordinated by the General Direction for the Promotion of the Country System of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has just concluded. “Food Education: The Culture of Taste” was the theme of this edition, that, as usual, had the aim of promoting abroad the Italian agri-food industry and quality cuisine, outstanding examples of the “Made-in-Italy Brand”, 

Numerous events all over the world has been organized thanks to the diplomatic and consular offices and Italian Cultural Institutes: commercial promotion activities, seminars and conferences, meetings with chefs and cooking courses, tastings and dinners. Italian cuisine has been the main topic of art creations, film screenings, concerts and photographic exhibitions. The relationship between food and environmental sustainability, healthy food culture, food safety, the right to food, food education, territorial identities and biodiversity: these were the core themes of the discussions.

ALMA was one of the main actor in the events that took place in the 12 countries all over the world with show cooking, conventions and gala dinners with its Chef Ambassadors.
This venture has brought abroad the Italian cuisine, its philosophy and the common project of fighting Italian sounding, to protect the traditions and raws that are born in our country and that have made it the key figures of food in the world.
