On the 18th of September 2018, a Tuesday five years ago, Claudio Ceroni and I opened Identità Golose Milano in Via Romagnosi 3, between the Mandarin Oriental and the Teatro alla Scala, the first international gastronomy hub. It was, and still is, the daily showcase, in absolute contemporaneity, in which to expose every idea, every reality born in the wake of the Identità Golose congress, first born February 2004 with a first edition January 2005, and the six months of Identità Expo, from May to October 2015.
