Cristina Bowerman
kicks off the second edition of the
“Master’s in Philosophy of Food and Wine”

Knowing how to communicate the culture of Italian food and wine products, understanding the different characteristics of the world of food and wine even within commercial networks at home and abroad, and linking the products to their history with "the goal of communicating and defending the uniqueness of 'Made-in-Italy" produce: this the challenge that awaits the food and wine professionals of tomorrow who will be studying at the Vita - Salute San Raffaele University of Milan. The "Master in Philosophy of Food and Wine" is set to begin on Friday, January 19th.
The first lesson, at 10 am at the headquarters of Banca IntesaSanpaolo Formazione in Milan, will be entrusted to Cristina Bowerman (chef of Glass Hostaria - Rome). The Master, which is in its second edition, was created in collaboration with ISWA, Italian Signature Wine Academy, an association presided over by Marilisa Allegrini, which brings together eight Italian wineries (Allegrini, Arnaldo Caprai, Feudi di San Gregorio, Fontanafredda, Frescobaldi, Masciarelli, Planeta and Villa Sandi) and Intesa Sanpaolo, as well as agri-food partner companies (such as Agriform and Molino Quaglia) and the commercial entities (such as Eataly).
"The challenge - explains Massimo Donà, Director of the Master - is to provide the tools to redefine, from an intellectual and creative - as well as technical and specialist - point of view, the world of Italian gastronomy and oenology, so that it can be communicated and exportable worldwide, maintaining its characteristics of typicality, history and value".
The subjects studies will include philosophy, ethics and aesthetics, history and geography of the landscape and territory. "Literature, art, anthropology and history of religions - adds Gianni Moriani, coordinator of the Master - will help to study food and wine in relation to their origins".
The master's program includes 360 hours of teaching (lessons, workshops and seminars), 300 hours of internships and 5 external field trips.
