For thousands of years, we humans have been the favorite food of some large animals. For Dinofelis, a large saber-toothed feline, a good meal of Homo Sapiens was the best they could hope for. Then we realized that if we had faced him as a group we could have won. There are actions that we have always carried out in groups, eating is one of them. Since we have been using fire, eating and telling are two indissoluble actions.

VISIONS shows how for a healthy and sustainable diet it is essential to combine the nourishment of the body with that of the mind through conviviality, sharing, storytelling. We compared the opinions of nutritionist Maurizio Sentieri and Professor of Food and Sustainable Human Nutrition Donato Angelino at the University of Teramo, who with his team has developed a pasta that not only does not make you fat, but also increases physical well-being. They tell us about the Mediterranean diet, functional foods, nomadic breads.

We can see how in Italy tradition is combined with scientific research and art, and how to prepare some traditional Italian dishes. But, mind you, this episode makes you hungry!
