Celebrate Italy’s cuisine and tune in to a special edition radio show

Sponsored by Italian National Tourist Board

The Italian National Tourist Board is gearing up to host a special edition of its radio program Australians love Italy on Visit Italy Web Radio.

In collaboration with the Italian Embassy in Canberra, the special edition radio program will celebrate the sixth edition of the Week of Italian Cuisine in the World, which takes place from 22 to 28 November 2021.

Special guests on the program will include Italy’s Ambassador to Australia, Her Excellency Francesca Tardioli, as well as celebrity chef Luca Ciano and soul singer Lisa Hunt.

This year’s cuisine week theme is: ‘Tradition and perspectives of Italian cuisine: awareness and enhancement of food sustainability.’

If we are what we eat, then we can confidently say that the Mediterranean diet is a model of balanced eating, included 11 years ago in the list of UNESCO intangible cultural heritage.

Italy’s ‘slow travel’ model aims to develop tourist routes and services based on the promotion of local gastronomic, agri-food and cultural biodiversity.

The European destination is against any form of front-of-package classification of food products which categories these products as healthy or not healthy without any adequate scientific base. These simplistic ways of labelling products are at risk of compromising the reputation of most typical food products.

Tune into Australians love Italy on Visit Italy Web Radio for this special Italian cuisine week episode on either Tuesday at 8pm (AEDT), Wednesday at 12pm (AEDT), Saturday at 10pm (AEDT) or Sunday at 2pm (AEDT).

You can listen to the show on the local Visit Italy website, Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Alternatively, you can download the Visit Italy Web Radio app on Apple’s App StoreGoogle Play, the Huawei App Gallery.

Episodes of Australians love Italy will also be made available on Spotify.
