There will be 42 speakers, all at the highest level, in the Auditorium alone at Identità Milano 2023. They will represent six different countries and, above all, they are the perfect interpreters of the conference's central theme, 'Ladies and gentlemen, the revolution is served'. These revolutionary spirits will meet in Milan to illustrate their approach to change (also) in the kitchen. On top of the names we revealed in the preview, many others have been added: TV host Fabio Fazio, for example, who at Identità Talk will dialogue with Corrado Assenza on the collaboration they have recently launched; or multi-starred chef Enrico Bartolini, with Michele Cobuzzi; and again Alberto Gipponi and the Cerea brothers, who will present 'The casoncello revolution is served' as part of a special space celebrating Bergamo and Brescia - Italian Capitals of Culture 2023.
But there are many novelties. Here is the complete programme.
Afternoon - We start again at 3.00 p.m. with an Italian bet in which Paolo Marchi believes very much, the possible faces of a young Italian cuisine that looks ahead: Richard Abou Zaki and Pierpaolo Ferracuti of Retroscena di Porto San Giorgio (Fermo). At 3.40 p.m., space will be given to Bergamo and Brescia - Italian Capitals of Culture 2023; the lesson titled 'The casoncello revolution is served' will feature Alberto Gipponi of Dina in Gussago, and again the Cerea brothers. At 4.20 p.m., we will return to broaden our vision with a special speaker, or rather a female speaker: Fatmata Binta, founder of the Fulani Kitchen Foundation in Ghana and winner of the Basque Culinary World Prize 2022. From Africa to South America: at 5 p.m., a giant, Brazilian Alex Atala from the D.O.M. in São Paulo, Brazil, will take the stage. With him, the first day's work in the Auditorium will come to a close.

Afternoon - Other female faces in the afternoon will take centre stage in the Auditorium of Identità Milano 2023: first Antonia Klugmann of L'Argine a Vencò in Dolegna del Collio (Gorizia), at 3.00 p.m. About 40 minutes later, the spotlight will focus on Colombian Leonor Espinosa, chef-patron of restaurant Leo in Bogotá and World's 50 Best Female Chefs 2022. At 4.20 p.m., it will be back to Italy with a new appointment with Identità Talk, themed 'Our starred revolution' with Andrea Aprea of restaurant Andrea Aprea in Milan, Riccardo Monco, Alessandro Della Tommasina and Alessandro Tomberli of Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence, Federico Ceretto patron of Piazza Duomo in Alba and Norbert Niederkofler of St.Hubertus in Val Badia. We will close the day, from 5.15 pm, with world pastry and chocolate champion Davide Comaschi.
Afternoon - After the lunch break, grand finale. At 3.00 pm, the stage will be set for Niko Romito of Casadonna in Castel di Sangro (L'Aquila). At 3.40 pm, a new sweet moment with Andrea Tortora of AT Pâtissier. We close the works in the Auditorium, from 4.20 pm, with the great Albert Adrià of Barcelona's Enigma.
