Slow Fish returns for its 11th edition, an event that will take place in Genoa where producers, excellence and curiosities related to Slow Food from all over Italy will meet. The 2023 edition, which will take place from 1 to 4 June in the Porto Antico of Genoa, will combine sea and land products between presentations and events. The theme for 2023 will be Coast to Coast, to talk about those coastal communities that have always been the meeting point between the sea and the hinterland. All regions of Italy are involved where the sea is the main protagonist but also the hinterland is rich and lively, and traditional cuisine makes the difference. The biennial event is organized by Slow Food and the Liguria Region, with the patronage of the Municipality of Genoa, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Forestry, the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security and the Ministry of Culture.
Access to Slow Fish is free but some of the meetings are by reservation, it will be open every day from 11 to 23, the events will be held in the various spaces used in the Porto Antico area of Genoa.
Among the guests will be Francesco Lollobrigida, Minister of Agriculture, Food Sovereignty and Forestry, Giovanni Toti, President of the Liguria Region, Marco Bucci, Mayor of Genoa, together with the organizers of the event: Carlo Petrini, Founder of Slow Food, Barbara Nappini, President of Slow Food, Serena Milano, Director of Slow Food Italy.
The event will focus on the ecological transition that starts from the sea, and will have small-scale coastal fishing as protagonists who carry out an ancient job but at the same time, thanks to technology, can be a response to the crises of the production and food system, such as the climate and sea temperatures that increase causing extreme phenomena.
