Garofalo is making its debut at the Salone del Gusto 2010, as an exhibitor and main sponsor of the most prestigious Italian food and wine event. Its presence confirms the full cultural identity of the issues that have always been a central focus of the historic Gragnano-based pasta maker and those on which the Slow Food movement is founded. These same issues will mark this edition of the Turin event.
To rediscover forgotten products and childhood tastes, trying to capture their history and the reason why they are so good; to be sure that with everyone’s contribution, either if it’s big or small, there is another possible way; to discuss different points of view and understand that passion and participation are what bring us together; to eat with who you prefer some spaghetti on the beach on a sunny day, enjoying it all; to think that beauty, art, knowledge and good things are a privilege that needs to be supported.
We could have done a manifesto of the Gente del Fud concept but it seemed too much of a formalism, we are Gente del Fud the ones who think that committing in doing the right thing is more important than winning.
I feel part of Gente del Fud
Massimo Menna, Pastificio Garofalo
