The event, organized by GIFASP in collaboration with Arclinea and the magazine Interni, will take place on Monday 22 June 2015 at 19 pm at the Centro Cucine Arclinea in corso Monforte 28 in Milan, on the occasion of Expo Milano 2015, within the format " Design meets food - Conversations on creativity ”, promoted by Interni magazine.

A Showcooking - Talk will be held on 22 June 2015 in Milan with an 'Orange Experience' as young interpreters, Fabrizio Sansoni, chef & food designer and Francesca Meana, paper designer, who will talk about their point of view on the coherence between content , form, function and consumption. The culture of food, in the 'proper' context of the main theme of Expo Milano 2015, will be examined through an inseparable bond of great openness, capable of building an always unique domestic landscape, which has man and food as nourishment, protagonists.

The landscape of food has changed: “interior and exterior” are an expression of the same reality and the exterior and its packaging are one with the content. At the center of the event at the Centro Cucine Arclinea in Corso Monforte 28 in Milan is an Orange Experience, that is the orange, “an almost perfect object in which there is absolute coherence between form, function and consumption”. Therefore, starting from Munari's concept of “Good design” we arrive at a liquid vision that draws attention to the interior / exterior and to the packaging. It is an event in which the hands become the central fact - during speaking both speakers work - almost a reconnection with the tradition and the depth of the sign, an origami event built with ritual and in real time. The landscape of food has changed: the modern era has created a series of 'stacking' and misunderstandings that have moved food away from its truest and most profound 'being'. .

More and more food must employ their own systems of other environments, to meet the diverse cultures, spaciousness, user mode. You should know to integrate new functions, the challenges of technology. Each project must therefore respond to different criteria but also the needs of security, ethics and sustainability. Qquesta is the essence of the dialogue between Gifasp and Arclinea. For Arclinea, which in recent decades has changed, uniquely, the behavior and the rituals in the kitchen, the not expressed only through form and function design, but become able to turn spaces into places of experience, creativity, sharing . GIFASP its part, it is deployed on the core values ​​of Expo 2015: for the Milan World Expo has planned a series of actions with the claim: "The protection and sustainability culture".
