In Pollica (Italy) a meeting on the Mediterranean Diet

The four communities symbol of the Mediterranean diet need to create a network to ensure continuity to the work and to gain visibility and protection at a local and global level

Just one day after the inauguration, the research center dedicated to the mayor of Pollica, Angelo Vassallo, killed last year, hosted an international event. Delegates from Greece, Morocco and Spain came together to define what concrete action to take to enhance the Mediterranean Diet, recently entered the UNESCO list of intangible heritage of humanity. The four communities symbol of the Mediterranean diet: Soria (Spain), Koroni (Greece), Chefchaouen (Morocco) and Cilento (Italy) reiterated the need to create a network between the four communities to ensure continuity to the work that led to this historic result and ensure the the Mediterranean diet continues to gain visibility and protection at a local and global level.
In particular, all those present agreed on the importance of implementing programs that allow young Greeks, Moroccans, Spanish and Italians to be the ambassadors of the historical social and cultural values that the Mediterranean Diet has always embodied. The Mediterranean Diet, in fact, can be seen as a common language that allows communities that have different history and culture to communicate. The representatives, in their own language of origin, told about their cultural habits underlining how much the cultivation, production and consumption of food is of fundamental importance for each of them.
Also present were representatives of Portugal and Jordan, who, given the extreme importance of the UNESCO recognition, have asked to participate in the future initiatives.
