Where is Terra Madre Salone del Gusto being held in 2022?
Parco Dora. This is a large, ex-industrial area converted to green space in the northwest of the city, where we’ll be hosting the market, exhibition spaces dedicated to Biodiversity, Education and Advocacy, the enoteca (including Taste Workshops on wine), street kitchens and food trucks, and the stands of our partners.
There will be other Taste Workshops held at Eataly Lingotto, Nuvola Lavazza and Edit, while the Dinner Dates will be held at Eataly Lingotto.
Nearby to Parco Dora, the conferences are held in the Environment Park.
Do I need to take a Covid-19 test to enter Italy from abroad?
No. From June 1, 2022, there are no more entry requirements relating to Covid-19 for Italy, nor are there any activities restricted to holders of the Green Pass (vaccination certificate). There will, however, be a Medical Station at the event which offers rapid and molecular Covid-19 tests (for a fee).
