5 inspirational stories about Italian food

On September 24th there will be the first 100per100 Italian Talks, the event dedicated to one of the most precious and irreplaceable resources of Made in Italy: food.

Italian cuisine is undoubtedly one of the most popular and loved in the world, but, despite this, Italy is only the fifth exporter in Europe, and the demand for food from our country is often satisfied by non-Italian products, which feed every day more the phenomenon of Italian sounding.

In order to better understand the problems, but, above all, try to play out the solutions, I Love Italian Food created  the 100per100 Italian Talks. the theme of this first edition is “Food: the black oil of Italy”

In front of an audience of professionals of the Italian F&B industry, five speakers will tell their inspirational stories, in the unique setting of the venue Ruote da Sogno. The common thread of the talks will be leaded by Massimo Bernardi, journalist and founder of Dissapore.com.

The five key players of the Talks will be:

Sara Roversi, co-founder of Future Food, with her projects has been following for years the mission to seek innovations in the food chain involving students, companies of the field and researchers worldwide. And this is right what her speech deals with: the future and the innovation of Italian food.

Nicola Levoni, President of ASSICA and Salumificio Levoni, will bring on stage his vision about how to make industry the keystone for the growth of food exports.

Thomas Rosolia, CEO of Koelnmesse Italia. His speech will show us how fairs can still be an indispensable tool, but innovative at the same time, to create new export opportunities for the Italian companies.

Roberto Moncalvo, President of Coldiretti since 2013, the main organization of agricultural entrepreneurs at national and European level will illustrate his idea of enhancing and protecting the Italian supply chain and products, always with a view of their internationalization.

In conclusion, the business case of the year, Ciro Cristiano, one of the founders and Executive Chef of Big Mamma. He will talk about this 100% Italian reality born in France from the idea of two young guys who believed in the potential of Italian food and wine. Today they have 7 restaurants of Italian cuisine in Paris, including La Felicità, the largest restaurant in Europe, entirely made in Italy. A virtuous example of entrepreneurship and food service, which shows how to bring our know-how abroad.
