The “Luigi Veronelli” High Institute of Gastronomy in Venice

In an interview, noted Milan-born philosopher, author, enologist and gastronome Luigi Veronelli (1926-2004) once stated, “wine is the song of the earth to the sky”. He thus created an elevated image that all professionals in the field of wine – and of any other fruit of nature in which man is able to find excellence – should keep in mind.

This image – along with the numerous lessons and inputs this anarchist and eclectic intellectual offered international food and wine culture – certainly inspired the founders and coordinators of the Alta Scuola Italiana di Gastronomia Luigi Veronelli (“Luigi Veronelli” High Institute of Gastronomy), which will open in July 2018 at the headquarters of the Giorgio Cini Foundation, on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice.

Angela Maculan, Chairwoman of the “Luigi Veronelli” Permanent Seminar, has explained, “The idea for the ‘Luigi Veronelli’ High Institute of Gastronomy stems from the belief that today, more than ever, food actions should be experienced and set up as moments of knowledge, opportunities to nourish the body and the mind. In this framework, professionals in the food industry must gain the necessary skills to communicate products as ambassadors of a cultural system that brings together individual companies and territories.”

The target audience of the school are the “professionals” Maculan mentions: restaurant and wine bar employees, owners of Italian agri-food companies, hotels and accommodation facilities, bloggers and journalists, tour guides and PR professionals and, of course, anyone who is about to start working in the world of wine and food culture, such as students from relevant degree programs for example.

Our gallery showcases the gorgeous school ready to welcome them.
