Session of VII AISU Congress in September 2015 in Padua, Call for Paper

Food and the City
Padua September 3rd – 4th – 5th, 2015
The food, over the centuries, has always played a vital role in the history of the city soaking in a tight relationship with the land, its economy, the structuring of the places, the articulation of the functions, the design of the built and open spaces, the flow of daily life and ritual of collective events, the distinction between cohabitation and groups, ethnic groups, religions, the meaning and symbolism of the relationship between social classes, the intimacy of the dinner table and sharing of extraordinary episodes in peacetime and war.
In the year 2015, which will also be at the Milan International Expo Center, the conference AISU organized by the University of Padua promotes an extensive comparison between cities, places, values, numbers and stories, which show again once more, the urban structure in all its complexity.
