>>“Food and social cohesion in north Milan: From the urban court to the community ‘food’

From May 9, 2015 to 31 October 2015 – Cusano Milanino May 25, 2015

After the first event in Cinisello Balsamo (May 9) now it’s the chance for Cusano

A project created and developed in Cinisello and Cusano, that is involving citizens and organizations from north of Milan.

In this area, the gradual disappearance of the fundamental elements of the agricultural roots of the urban fabric and the depersonalization that characterizes the current systems of production and distribution of food, have gradually deprived the landscape and the food of the possibility of being, in the context of the city, sharing vehicles, elements of social cohesion and collective identity factors.
With the aim of returning this values to the landscape and the food, the project proposes opportunities for sharing the cultural heritage of local history, with particular
interest in landmarks of Northern Milan, where agriculture and urbanity have coexisted in a very intertwined way: the agricultural courts of Cinisello and Balsamo, the farms and the courts of Cusano, the living example of Garden city of Milanino and its food self-sufficiency project.
The other side of the project consist of the shared construction of the Food Communities in Nord Milano, resources that can enhance all places, in a context where food production has moved away from the city and the food  is standardized, we are working for a return to ‘food personality’, bond with the territory, identity value, a network made up of people who are committed daily to enhance and ensure a good food, thanks to the naturalness of
raw materials, clean, through the respect of ecosystems and the environment, right,
because it guarantees dignity and fairness to those who eat and those who produce. In connection with the themes proposed by EXPO 2015.
