The area of Turin boasts one of the most interesting food systems in Italy, for what concerns local food and gastronomy culture, innovative food businesses, important national and international cultural and political influencers in the field of food and the food solidarity system.
Even without already formally existing and operational food policies, Turin is rich of experiences of practices, projects and policies making the food system more sustainable and fair, touching most of the many dimensions of food: environment, culture, economy, health, social and spatial justice, and so on.

This book, realized by Città di Torino within the European project Food smart cities for Development, presents a collection of the more interesting of these experiences, describing them and showing their multidimensionality and integration with the different phases of the food system.
The descriptions, completed with maps, are preceded by some interesting insights or visions on local food systems and urban food policies, coming from policy makers, researchers, public officials, jurists and activists.
This collection of ideas and practices finishes with the dreaming vision of the Canadian food policy analyst and activist Wayne Roberts, presenting his (and our) hopes for the future of the Turin food system.
