Luigi Veronelli, the Italian high school of gastronomy, presented in London

International debut for the higher education school promoted by the Luigi Veronelli Permanent Seminar and the Giorgio Cini Foundation: at the Italian Cultural Institute in London, the press and operators will be presented with the specialization course “Walking in the vineyards: places, people and culture of Italian wine” starting at the end of May, the 2019 edition of “NutriMenti | Festival of Gastronomic Culture” and the collaboration for the “World Week of Italian Cuisine”.

Thursday, 28 March 2019 – Among the few certainties of this troubled phase of relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union is undoubtedly the passion that binds British citizens to the wines, food products and cuisines of Italy. An interest to be promoted and cultivated also through opportunities for in-depth study such as that proposed yesterday by the Permanent Seminar Luigi Veronelli and Giorgio Cini Foundation at the Italian Institute of Culture in London.

With a press conference and an event open to operators and enthusiasts, in fact, the representatives of the two organizations presented the Luigi Veronelli Italian High School of Gastronomy, a reality founded in 2018 in Venice, on the beautiful island of San Giorgio Maggiore.

The choice of the Institute directed by Marco Delogu for this international debut responds coherently to the mission of the project: to give value to quality food products by developing, in operators and consumers, awareness of their cultural content. Seminario Veronelli and the Giorgio Cini Foundation are firmly convinced that, in order to fully share the wealth of Italian agriculture and gastronomy, it is necessary to connect wines and food to a broader system of relations that includes our artistic, historical and landscape heritage.

The Italian Cultural Institute in London, directed by Marco Delogu, is the official Italian government agency dedicated to the promotion of Italian language and culture in England and Wales. To this end, the Institute: organizes concerts, cultural events and exhibitions, Italian courses. It facilitates initiatives promoting the Italian language in England and Wales, including collaboration with Italian teachers in English and Welsh and with Italian universities, and encourages cultural and scientific collaboration between Italy and England/Wales, establishing contacts with institutions, bodies and personalities of the arts and the English and Welsh scientific communities to promote projects to raise awareness of Italian life and culture. It provides documentation and information on Italian cultural life and institutions working in this field and supports initiatives for the cultural development of the Italian community in England and Wales to facilitate its integration.

After the meetings, tastings and debates organized in 2018, the Alta Scuola Veronelli now offers its first specialization course, designed with the precise intention of providing professionals and future operators in the wine and catering sector – but also in communication and tourism – with a high-profile, innovative training service that is compatible with work or study commitments.

Starting from Saturday, May 25, for 180 hours distributed over a semester, the advanced training course “Walking the vineyards: places, people and culture of Italian wine” will see mobilized a faculty of more than 35 university professors, agronomists, oenologists, philosophers, art historians, representatives of the world of culture, journalists and critics. The training course will allow participants to acquire a new, deep and aware look at the Italian wine sector and to develop the skills necessary to communicate and promote a country that has its distinctive features in complexity and variety.
