FROM FARM TO FABLE?: POLITICS OF TASTE, AUTHENTICITY, AND SUSTAINABILITY

Italian food is globally viewed as a treasure of Italian national identity. While Italy’s economy has shrunk, the green economy is booming. What is the influence of social elements on the organic food market? What is the role of memory, nostalgia for the past, and the desire to show “distinctive” taste and consumer behavior? Can the organic, ethically sourced, and sustainable market feed the world? Doesn’t the “from farm to table” trend often become a “from farm to fable” lie as many investigations have revealed? And lastly, is the phenomenon recent, or is it rooted in the past?  

Organizer: Patrizia La Trecchia, University of South Florida, patrizia@usf.edu
