Conference on “Cultura, gastronomia e turismo”

September 14, 2018

@ Palazzo dei Congressi, Lugano SALA B1

The conference on “Cultura, gastronomia e turismo” organised by the UNESCO Chair, Cultura i Turisme and Patronat de Turisme Costa Brava Girona is part of a series of culinary events, organised by “Città del Gusto 2018”, honoring the city’s newly appointed title of a Swiss “Città del Gusto”. Key speakers will be world class chef, Joan Roca i Fontané, director of the UNESCO Chair “Gastronomia, Cultura i Turisme” of the University of Girona (Spain), Prof. Maria Dolors Vidal Casellas, and UNESCO Chair holder, Prof. Lorenzo Cantoni. 

Every year another city in Switzerland is rewarded with the title “Città del Gusto” and has to organize a “week of taste”. Cultural heritage does not stop at physical objects or sites, but also includes traditions, such as culinary techniques, which have been passed on from generation to generation. More info about the “week of taste” here. For the full program of Lugano’s “week of taste” (September 13 – 23, 2018) please click here
