Pane Nostro (Our Bread)
The Italian-French association “Mediterran: Our Way of Living” is based in San Salvario, the gentrifying and nightlife district of Turin. The project’s creators collaborate with Slow Food and carry out food education activities.
Pane Nostro opposes the constrained and dominant nutritional models, the disorders caused by the dietary imbalances, and calls attention to the need to rediscover the authentic Mediterranean cuisine.
“Because pleasure, health, beauty, and harmony are not exclusive luxuries dictated by dominant social models, but our most innate right to health.”
The festival wants to emphasize that what limits us are the food regimes and dietary restrictions which are aimed at controlling our pleasures: “Against the bodies that reduce man to a commodity, we should free our lifestyle from the idolatry of beauty and longevity.”
During the festival week, the association will offer free consultations by a nutritionist at his office in Via Goito 7.
