Taste in Florence
From 7 to 9 March 2015, at the Stazione Leopolda. Here's what not to miss in the three days dedicated to food quality
When she was born, ten years ago, it seemed like a great adventure, has now become one of the top events in the field of food and wine niche made in Italy. Agostino Poletto, deputy general manager and marketing director of Pitti Immagine tells us what not to miss in Taste, the three days dedicated to good food, 7 to 9 March 2015, the Stazione Leopolda.
What makes this tenth edition even more interesting?
Meanwhile, the new products presented by 320 companies in the show, with many new entries that are grafted on a sort of "club of exhibitors" that in the past ten years have established with the event and its identity a symbiotic relationship and great cooperation with us to organize, as well as between them, as I said before. Then there will be the important topics discussed in the Taste Rings, the Taste Events and special events: the collaboration with Mini, the car brand, with its MiniCafé and light installation in space Alcatraz, the extraordinary creations in glass bottles and glassware Etruscan, the presence of the best Italian chocolate selected by the Society of chocolate that will receive the "Golden Tablet Award", the magnificent books on food that Guido Tommasi Editore presents this time under the title "The Unbearable Lightness of reading." There will also be a beautiful exhibition at the Palatine Gallery Pitti Palace, "Sweet triumphs and fine folds", with sugar sculptures and napkins designed for wedding in Florence Maria de 'Medici in October 1600. In the gallery will also see a movie dedicated to the work of ancient art foundry Del Giudice and that of the artist Joan Sallas and its fantastic "folding napkins" that elaborate the month up to the historic wedding banquet ... And then of course the many appointments Out of Taste ̶ dinners, themed tastings, installations, performances and creative performances ̶ involving as always places, shops and several of the city.
A tip for those who have only one day available?
Exercise in freedom the taste and the pupils, the taste and the view for the things that we like. It is only for three days, then you can start to pay attention to the line ...
