Cheese between creativity and UNESCO heritage

5th edition | Bergamo | 20-22 November 2020

The 2020 edition

A paradigm shift

The 2020 edition is certainly special: it has to face the problems and the new priorities related to the COVID-19 pandemic, that has affected the dairy sector.

The pandemic has changed the world a lot leading to new relationships and business models, up-to-date technological instruments and different consumption habits we need to deal with.

Creativity and UNESCO heritage as key points

The fact that Bergamo is worldwide known as one of the cities hardest-hit by the pandemic gives it the chance to have a leading role in the post-Covid 19 situation.

The 2020 edition represents a real breakthrough and it broadens its horizons by connecting the UNESCO creative cities with UNESCO national and international projects.

The 2020 edition analyses new scenarios and connects assets, people and projects capable of providing added value.
