Abstract

The relationships between food supply and its movements have been crucial since the foundation of our urban society. Today, living in a geo-urban age that pours its commercial energy in the commodification of food, exploring the complex and often non-transparent trajectories food cycles need to take in order to reach our plates is generally impossible. However, food markets have been always globally connected (directly or not) since ancient times, representing transitional places, where every day social practices, intercultural exchanges, and creative co-creation can foster the idea of cosmopolitan habitat. The essay in the framework of Creative Food Cycles project, explore transnational spaces from medieval Europe to contemporary challenges of urban society to enlarge scopes and scales of regional foodsheds.
