“Feeding Milan. Energies for Change” (Nutrire Milano. Energie per il cambiamento) is an ongoing research, promoted by Slow Food Italia, Politecnico di Milano-INDACO dept. and University of Gastronomic Sciences. The aim of the project is to design a system of services and infrastructures to make the Milanese agri-food chain more efficient and effective, in order to shape a scenario of sustainable and innovative metro-agriculture. The main idea is to support the demand of high quality and fresh food expressed by the consumers, making agriculture the praesidium of land’s territorial quality. This means to revitalise local networks, encourage the sharing of common principles and optimise the resources in order to create a new territorial system. The emerging vision figures out a rural-urban area where agriculture flourishes feeding the city and, at the same time, offers to the city dwellers a set of opportunities for a multiplicity of farming and nature related activities. The project aims to support, spread and create a synergistic network of services for a short food chain between the city and its periuban agricultural area.
