The University of Gastronomic Sciences at Terra Madre


The University of Gastronomic Sciences (UNISG) was founded in 2004 by Slow Food and aims to produce a new type of profession: the gastronome. You can discover what a gastronome is, what they study and how they work and what gastronomy means at UNISG during the five days of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto, through their program of events, in particular the conferences “Who Is The Gastronome?” and “Stories of Eco-Gastronomy”.
The heart of UNISG’s activities will be in Valentino Park, where an exhibition space in the square in front of Valentino Castle will be animated with events, many of them designed by the students themselves. Guided tasting sessions that encompass bread, salamis, and Sardinian cuisine will be accompanied by the Personal Shoppers, who’ll gived guided tours of the great Market of Terra Madre that will spread out across the park. The students will also be conducting tours beyond the park, in the Walk’n’eat and Bike’n’eat programs, in search of the most delicious treats in Turin and Piedmont.
The teachers, meanwhile, will be enlightening us in the conferences. Italian cuisine in the United States, the history of Italian wine, the pre-Columbian diet in Mesoamerica, the link between wine and art, and the relationship between health, biodiversity and pleasure will all be up for discussion.
The University’s reach extends beyond its stand in the park: teachers and students will be present at the Terra Madre Forums, taste workshops, beer tastings with the Alto Apprenticeship brewers, wine tastings at the Enoteca, Food Mood (the business area organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Turin), the space dedicated to Systemic Event Design and the Edible Commandments food trucks, where international students will cook specialties from their own countries.
