Abstract Table of contents Authors / Editors
Food, earth, water, the environment we live in and demographic growth represent the inescapable challenges that the multilateral institutions and governments must rise to. Famine, poverty, waste of food and land grabbing, climate change and water shortage are the consequences of irresponsible management of resources and failure to take a global view of the problems and possible solutions.
With Alessia Montani, jurist, vice president of Fabula in Art and creator of the Jus series on the right to new rights, Fabula in Art dedicates its first volume to nutrition, the major challenge of the New Millennium.
In search of viable solutions and given the issue' s complexity, we have consulted representatives of the major institutions in the sector, such as FAO, PAM and the WHO, exponents of the Council for Research in Agriculture and Slow Food International, as well as professors from various universities, experts in the agricultural, economic and health sectors, and the great Indian geneticist S.M. Swaminathan, together with some of the moving spirits of conviviality.
Finally, the obvious choice was to enhance our texts with works by contemporary artists, chosen by Giorgia Simoncelli, who have focused their creativity on food. Thus we have art and new challenges, communicating with an extraordinary visual language the signs we see taking shape on the horizon of a future that appears uncertain, but it is definitely there.
