the rituals and symbols of food featured in the arts over time
A Journey where works of art, drawings and architectural models, films, objects, documents, books, menus, and album covers that bring to life narratives that place works and images in historical, sociological and anthropological context, reflecting the interwoven aesthetics and design of eating rituals; exhibitions that use a variety of media, from the historical to the contemporary, to portray expression, creativity and communication in all cultures:
a layered and multi-sensorial perspective that looks to developments and solutions that relate to food, ranging from kitchen utensils, the dining table and the picnic, bars and restaurants to changes resulting from travel by road, plane and space. Also, the design and look of buildings dedicated to food production and food rituals;
an exploration of the special bond between the visual arts and food, revealing the rituals and pointing to idiosyncrasies in the experience of eating together;
a program enriched by masterpieces made available by museums, collectors and artists.
The History and Evolution of Food and Nutrition set in a wide-ranging scenario tracing the visual arts and various segments of industrial arts and mass culture, including:
the introduction of new foods in the Western world as shared through past Universal Expositions;
a representation of 1960’s products with the application of mass advertising and packaging;

Food Technology and Biodiversity

best practices for a sustainable development
Food Security development and sharing with knowledge networks is comprised of experts, scientists, researchers and technicians that address core topics to share and transfer knowledge on global food security, as well as identifying sustainable development policies and programs.
Food Knowledge activities are divided into five main themes for research and innovation: 
sustainable management of natural resources;
improvement in the quantity and quality of agricultural production;
socio-economic dynamics and global markets;
sustainable development of small rural communities in marginal areas;
food consumption habits: diet, environment, society, economy and health.
Agrobiodiversity is achieved in greenhouses that have been cultivated with plants coming from different continents and different eras that tell stories through their shapes, sizes, colors and smells. The path through the greenhouses and open spaces becomes a sensory experience which connects us to both the earth and the food. A digital interface provides an additional means of information. The dialogue between human and plant generates reflection, curiosity, memories, desires and knowledge.
The result is the coming together of culture and nature, an expression of the many civilizations that, over time, have found in various places on the planet different ways to produce food and shape landscapes, with the aid of technical solutions.
Feeding a planet with ten billion people with conservation and a sensible use of resources without compromising the overall health of the ecosystem is achievable through research and practices such as those utilized in botanical gardens during the middle ages.
