nutrition, expo, science

A major exhibition dedicated to the changes that have marked the way we eat and the complexity of the food system.

The protagonists are the people: each of us in his/her relationship with food. Food production professionals, researchers and industry experts, teenagers and adults were all involved in the design of the exhibition.

Sharing, change, relationships and technology are the key words through which the Museum interprets the theme of Expo 2015.
