A market and a stomach, an archive and a mouth, a center for exchange and a brain, a laboratory and a tongue; all of these concepts are useful in defining FoodCultura, a wallless space dedicated to communication and investigation, as well as the global history of food, customs, cultural experiences and art.

The concept Food Culture explores broader questions related to the modes from which human identities are manifested: their universal rituals, their relationship with local memory, their interbreeding processes, their strategies for preservation and cohesion, their means of conveying or undermining traditions as well as contemporary social practices.
