Food for the Mind: Reflections to Understand the World – Terra Madre
“The coronavirus is the biological response of Gaia, our living planet, to the state of ecological and social emergency of which mankind is both the cause and the victim,” says Fritjof Capra, Austrian Physicist, economist, and writer, inaugurating the series of Food Talks at Terra Madre.
Together with him in the digital program of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2020, we have Dave Goulson, professor of biology at the University of Sussex and author of several books on pollinator ecology and bumblebee conservation; Carolyn Steel, architect and author of the book Sitopia: how food can save the world, which offers us a provocative and exhilarating vision of change and how to thrive on our crowded and overheated planet; Jessica Fanzo, professor of international food policy at Johns Hopkins University’s Berman Institute of Bioethics; Salvatore Settis, archaeologist and art historian, director of the Scuola Normale di Pisa from 1999 to 2010. Among his books on the landscape and the necessity to defend this common good are: Landscape, constitution, cement: the battle for the environment against civil degradation, and Incomplete Constitution: Art, landscape, environment.
