On the road with Street Food and Food Trucks

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is on the road this year, with the sizzling of pans and irresistible smells coming from the Food Trucks and the Street Food stands.

In the Piazzetta Reale, in front of the majestic palace which once housed Italy’s royal family, Food Trucks arriving from all over the peninsula will be waiting for you. At the Murazzi del Po, pubs offering the best Italian artisanal beers will be joined by a selection of Slow Street Food.

Our giro d’Italia begins with the host region: Among Piedmont’s food trucks, chef Marco Sacco’s Piccolo Lago is participating for the very first time. With two Michelin stars to his name, Sacco is ready for a new challenge, far from the haute cuisine atmosphere and breath-taking panoramas of his lakeside restaurant “Verbiana” on the shore of Lago Maggiore. We look forward to seeing him in action!

At L’Alveare che dice sì of Vigliano Bpoormangeriellese, you can taste specialties made with local vegetables and legumes and pair them with local sausages from Mac ‘d Bra or meatballs from Norma Polpetteria Artigiana (Turin). The stuffed baked potatoes of Poormanger (Torino) are original too. On the sweeter end of the scale you’ll find the ice creams by Cremeria Nivà (Torino), Agrigelateria Dalpian (Tiglieto), and yogurt from FaMù.

From Emilia-Romagna we’ll have hamburgers and sandwiches prepared with the best products of the region by Beestrò from San Mauro Pascoli. Meanwhile, the true lampredotto—a Florentine dish made from cow stomach—will be waiting for you at Ditta Eredi l. Nigro: Third-Generation Offal.

Down through the arches of Via Po to Piazza Vittorio, we find the historical center of Turin’s nightlife, the “Murazzi”, the riverside promenade, where there’ll be a wide range of Street Food during the days of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, starting with the Hamburgheria di Eataly from Genola.


Emilia Romagna unites the best of the Appennine cuisine with the characteristic tigella (stuffed flat bread with lard and parmesan, by and fish fritters by the Osteria del Gran Fritto (Forlì).

Two Ligurian Street Food kitchens: the Consorzio Focaccia di Recco and Zena Zuena from Genova, bring a traditional symbol of Ligurian culinary excellence, the unavoidable fügassa. Finally from Apulia, a specialty which won’t fail to please: the bombetta from Quelli della Bombetta, flavorful rolls of pork filled with Canestrato cheese and cooked over charcoal by skilled hands, an important piece of the local gastronomic culture.
Among our key players (sadly we don’t have space to talk at length about them all!), a special mention must go to the city of Amatrice: in spite of the terrible earthquake that befell August 24, the chefs of Amatrice won’t be deterred, and the  Street Food space will have specialities directly from the town – not to be missed!
