THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET AND EXPO 2015

The term “diet” derives from the Greek for “lifestyle”, that is all those practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, abilities, and cultural spaces with which, over the centuries, the Mediterranean peoples created a synthesis between the cultural environment, social organization, the universe of myth and religion around food and eating.

So the Mediterranean Diet has within itself a meaning that goes beyond the commercial value of each product; it is a lifestyle that brings peoples together. This is the reason why the symbol of the Mediterranean Diet may become the common theme and reference for the global shop window at EXPO 2015.

Since the theme chosen for EXPO 2015 is “Feed the planet”, I think the Mediterranean Diet deserves a space because it holds a distillation of various lifestyles and practices which represent the best kind of nourishment and which all have in common olive oil, the symbolic product.
