The city of Genoa will turn into a marine haven when it hosts the sixth edition of the Slow Fish festival.
Taking place on May 9-12th, the biennial festival is dedicated to sustainable fish. It aims to bring awareness about endangered species and the dangers of overfishing, which has depleted fish stocks around the world, including the Mediterranean.
Themed The Sea Belongs To Everyone, the festival will be a free event for the first time in its history. It will be held at Genoa's historic Porto Antico, which dates back to the 5th century BC.
Visitors can expect to sample different types of fresh seafood, shop at an open-air market stalls, participate in taste workshops and learn about sustainable fish practices during live discussions with marine experts and chefs.
Special events include the Fish N' Chef, in which four chefs will demo fish dishes, and Dinner Dates, two very special dinners that will be prepared off-site by two renown European chefs: Gennaro Esposito from Vico Equense, Italy and Angel León from Cadiz, Spain.
