The Study Centre Silvia Santagata – CSS Ebla and the UNESCO Chair on Sustainable Development and Territory Management are involved, from the 20 to the 22 November, in the 38° National Congress of SINU – Società Italiana di Nutrizione Umana (Italian society of human nutrition) at Torino Incontra Congress Centre.

Culture and traditional knowledge have a main role in sustainable processes of agri-food production and health promotion. The goal of the meeting, organized with the patronage of University of Turin, Commissione Nazionale Italiana UNESCO and ICOMOS Italia, is to analyze the good management of the territory and the cultural and natural resources for the agri-food production. This is clear in sites, identified by UNESCO as cultural landscapes and inscribed on the World Heritage List, or in some traditions and social practices, for example the Mediterranean diet, inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, that are involved increasingly in the cultural policies.
