More than 6,000 farmers, shepherds, fishers and cooks from over 130 countries met in the industrial city of Turin in 2008 for an event known as Terra Madre. This marked the third year that “Slow Food” association had organized this event. Masterful film director Ermanno Olmi was in attendance in 2006 and 2008 with several camera crews. “The production of food is being exploited more than ever as a means of exerting power”, says “Slow Food” founder Carlo Petrini. The idea behind the meeting of the “Terra Madre” network is to make food, and those who produce it, a focal point of our lives once more.
