Have you ever seen one of those EYP session videos where people with blindfolds are asked to taste some weird foreign food during Eurovillage? I bet you all did.

Probably one thing you never asked yourself while watching those is why it is so funny. This is, indeed, something that a lot of businesses have asked themselves to build their success: yeah, talking about that fancy chinese restaurant in your city centre or that italian “ristorante pizzeria” next to it.
In a globalised world like our, local cuisine is of growing interest. This might sound like a paradox, but still, it works.

Probably italian cuisine is not going to be a topic at the session, but I’m sure that in Riva del Garda 2016 – 1st International Forum of EYP Italy you’ll get a chance to taste it. The theme of the session is, indeed, “from global to local, from local to global”. It will tackle more important issues than the one I’ve discussed above, but you got what we are talking about now.

The session will be presided by Conall Ó Ruairc and head-organised by Clara Luehwink and Paride Prati.
