Tours (F) - Cittaslow to Euro Gusto 2011

French National Network

Cittaslow will participate for the first time in Euro Gusto, Tours (France). The association will be present in two spaces with an institutional stand along with information both on paper and video, and a space dedicated to six Cittaslow through their own stands, typical products and handicrafts. The Cittaslow that are attending the fair will be: Labastide d'Armagnac, Segonzac, Acqualagna, Castelnuovo ne' Monti, Monte Castello di Vibio, Orvieto.

Euro Gusto is the European rendez-vous for the Slow Food movement. Gusto (taste) is the name of the game, but Slow Food is all about taste combined with ethical consumption. While we believe that « eating is an agricultural act »*, an act with consequences that go way beyond the dinner table, under no circumstances we are giving up on the pleasure of eating.

The impetus behind Euro Gusto is the wish to share this vision of the food we eat with the widest audience possible. Euro Gusto is an opportunity to share experiences and make connections around the subject of food so naturally, conviviality is the key, another of the founding values of Slow Food.
