ALL ABOUT: SLOW FISH
Get ready ladies and gentlemen, because Slow Fish is back! This May, Porto Antico in Genoa will be hosting the 8th Edition of the sea conservation and awareness event. The theme for 2017 is ‘we are the net’ and represents the inter-webbed relationships and exchange of knowledge amongst the actors in the fishing sector. For 4 days (from the 18th - 21st) the city’s port will be filled with everyone from fisherman, craftsmen, chefs, researchers and of course thousands of tourists ready to drink, eat and spread the concern for our oceans’ wellbeing. To get a head start in planning your visit and avoiding the madness, be sure to check out our guide for the Top 5 Things To Do At Slow Fish here.
This month while Slow Fish is swarming with people, take a day to escape the crowds at the port and explore the amazing city of Genoa! Filled with historic landmarks and traditional restaurants, we recommend a long walk around the city centre to browse the shops and meet some of the locals. For some Genovese classics stop by Voglia di Pane for their renowned focaccia and if the sun is shining, try and make it to Boccadasse for great gelato with a beach setting. We also suggest the drive to Spianata Castelletto, the hill a little outside of the centre, for a great view over the city at sunset. For a traditional restaurant to taste the local cuisine, head over to Zena Zuena to enjoy a nice dinner among friends.
Are you wondering what's going on at Societa right now? A lot of stuff actually! They've just planted around 100 Dolcetto plants. Those lucky enough to still be around in a couple of years will be able to taste the very first "società wine". Wait, there's more! Now that Spring has actually arrived and we're all looking forward to the brunches and dinners at the lovely società garden, in the next edition we will be publishing the "street food calendar". In the meanwhile: the next event - 14th May, which consists of a brunch and a flee market. Don't miss out.
