Terra Madre and the Salone del Gusto

International hall at opening, Day 2.
Terra Madre and the Salone have been an inspirational experience.  So many others I spoke to while on the 5 day conference echoed that statement - overwhelming was another.

Visiting the International hall and speaking representatives from the various nations illustrated the human face of the Slowfood movement.  It put in perspective the fact that people the world over are not content with homogenisation of food, not willing to lose their food culture and traditions and that the Slowfood motto of 'good, clean and fair' speak to us all, regardless of our place on this planet.

May all who attended have a safe journey home.
