42,000 Visitors to Slow Fish 2007

Italy - 06 May 07

At 5pm on the third day of Slow Fish the turnstiles at the Fiera di Genova had registered 15,355 entries, making a total of 42,000 visitors since the event opened on Friday and surpassing the organizers’ estimated figure. Many families and young people filled the Pavillion C of the Fiera, and the exhibitors noted a characteristic unique to the Slow Fish public. In the words of one, “The visitors are curious and ask very specific questions. It’s clear they want to learn.” Just what we at Slow Food want to hear.
