Carlo Petrini

carlo petrini The Slow Food Movement was born in Italy in1986 when Carlo Petrini organized a protest against the building of a McDonald’s in Rome.

Petrini founded Slow Food International three years later, renouncing not only Fast Food, but the overall pace of Fast Life. Issuing a manifesto, the movement called for the safeguarding of local economies, the rediscovery of authentic culinary tradition and a sustainable, ecologically aware consumerism.

At the table, Slow Food advocates a return to traditional recipes, locally grown foods and wines, and eating as a social event. Today the movement is active in over 50 countries with over 80,000 followers

Carlo Petrini, President of the International Slow Food Movement is a writer; he lives in Bra, Italy.
