The Slow Food Movement

25 years ago, Carlo Petrini and his friends started the Slow Food movement because they believed that they were on the verge of losing something beautiful, basic and essential to life: the diversity of food, the richness of our traditions, the connection between what we eat and how it is produced.

Since then, Slow Food has become the only movement to connect the pleasure of food with social responsibility; fighting for the fundamental right to good, clean and fair food for everyone.

Carlo is delighted and proud to share this video that captures what our movement has become.
