When food makes the headlines and when the headlines are about food: from 25 to 27 February 2016, Turin will host the first edition of the International Food Journalism Festival.

Three days completely dedicated to one of the most current topics, through meetings, workshops and a “tasty” calendar of off events, show cooking and guided tastings, addressed to those in the field and open to the public.

National and international experts will enliven the stage, alongside voices of companies, institutions, bloggers and journalists in the sector.

The Festival will be focused on four themes: Food Safety, Biodiversity, Lifestyles and Enogastronomy.

The work sessions will be held in the historic centre of the city in the Cavallerizza building, location of the new Aula Magna of the University of Turin.

Other historic locations will be involved in the off events, some of them being open air in the Mole Antonelliana. On the last day, the boundaries of the Festival will move out of Turin, with a series of press trips – reserved for journalists and bloggers – to discover the enogastronomic and food excellences throughout Piedmont.
