Due Punti Festival consists of nine open-access events, during which citizens get to meet university researchers in an informal context, and can address environmental, social and cultural issues revolving around the production and consumption of food. Together, they will discuss the many meanings of the term “sustainability”, the serious repercussions of global heating on the agribusiness and forestry supply chains, the contemporary way of conceiving our relationship with the ecosystems we are a part of.

The first phase of this series of events is called Due Punti ON AIR. Every two weeks, starting from Tuesday, 16 th June 2020, you can tune in to the Facebook page of @DuePuntiFestival, and join in tastings, play games, join livestreams and ask questions to authors, researchers, and producers, look at reality through images seen via a magnifying glass, give and receive tips on movies to see and books to read.

A second, off-line phase will begin in the Spring of 2021, and will take place in Campus AgroVet (Grugliasco), and in Complesso Aldo Moro (Torino).

The events have been organized and will be coordinated by the Department of Agricultural, Forestry and Food Sciences, in collaboration with the Department of Veterinary Sciences, and the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Modern Cultures of Università degli Studi di Torino.
