Soul Travel: the Annamaria Gallone`s Stories, part #1


 Film fest presented by the director and producer
 Annamaria Gallone


The first night is dedicated to the series of documentaries "Terra Madre" describing food production, transformation, distribution and promotion. Each documentary lets us know one of the 270 presidia established worldwide by Slow Food. Nevertheless they tell about respecting and protecting the environment, biodiversities, nature`s beauties but above all people involved in the production of these products, their memories, their dedication and their passion.

The Institute is glad to present the two selected documentaries :

È It is milking time and as each cheese-maker in the valleys of Albaredo and Gerola in the province of Sondrio knows, that means Bitto: a cheese with scents of the alpine flowers and herbs. Bitto, the only cheese whose aging process is universally recognized to last even 10 years, is the result of an ancient tradition which has been passed over the centuries.


The adventure of the eel, the snake-like fish that goes up Mar dei Sargassi again in order to procreate but then completes its life cycle in the waters of Comacchio valleys, a delicate ecosystem enclosed within the rivers Po and Reno and the Adriatic Sea. Slow Food and Il Parco Delta del Po of Emilia Romagna region rediscovered the ancient tradition of marinaded eels which, not being anymore at risk of extinction, can now be treated according to most ancient traditions.
