This year, Terra Madre Day – our global celebration of local food – went to new heights. Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has taken the Terra Madre Day flag, along with several Slow Food Presidia legumes, on her 6-month trip into space to ensure she will be able to connect to home with local products.
Last night we received a video message from Samantha, sent to us from the International Space Station expressing that “enjoying our food is very important, up here in space as well as down on Earth”

Celebrated every year on December 10, the anniversary of Slow Food International, the day sees events take place all over the world.
