Students at LdM have the opportunity to participate at a slow drink activity that takes place at Eataly. Wine producers and food store owners travel from all over Italy to explain their products to students, and talk about the Italian culture of food and wine more in depth. Students get to experience first-hand the way Italians eat and drink. The slow food activity was initiated here in Italy as a reaction to fast food, which lack quality and taste. With slow drink, people get to appreciate the beauty of food and wine, and what better place to do it than here in Italy.
