We are a group of journalists and communication operators
Every day in our job, we address issues related to food, increasingly realizing how necessary a constant debate about the quality of information is, in a field that is so fragile and so felt by the citizen.
Therefore, we thought that maybe there was no need to keep talking only to each other. We thought that the time to gather our fellow journalists and communicators, to invite them in Turin to a standing appointment for meeting, debate, reflection, education and mutual knowledge has arrived. A circumstance in which we discuss periodically about how we are doing our job, opening a dialogue also with new kinds of “journalisms”, research scientist and health experts. This is how the idea of the Festival was born: from the bottom, from the work, from the passion, from the sense of responsibility of those who report information in a Country, which relies its identity and its recognition all over the world on “food awareness”.
Formally, the cultural Association Pensare il Cibo is the entity that runs the Festival. However, the idea was designed inside a larger workspace in via Verdi 20, Turin, where journalists and communication professionals operate. Some of them are younger, others less, they are in part specialized in food information, and every day they ask themselves what is the meaning behind their jobs and what are the best way to conduct it.
