Wenda at Cibi Futuri – Arena FICO Eataly World

On Tuesday 19 December Wenda has participated in Cibi Futuri, an event organised in Bologna at Arena FICO Eataly World, the biggest agri-food park in the world that wants to symbolise, as in its acronym, a Fabbrica Italiana Contadina (Italian Farming Factory), by telling to the citizens from all over the world about the excellence and the beauty of Italian food and wines.

Cibi Futuri has taken place following an open structure, composed by focus groups, lectures, panel discussions, and has brought together members from the world of business, think-thanks and advanced training schools. After the introduction and the session opening – this latter by Tito Nocentini, Intesa Sanpaolo Regional Director for Emilia-Romagna, Marche, Abruzzo e Molise – Direction Studies and Researches Intesa Sanpaolo (with a Study on agri-food) and Observatory for innovation Intesa Sanpaolo (with the Presentation of Trends of innovation on food) have lead the focus groups on the perspectives of agri-food. A lecture on the future of human nutrition, by Dr. Marco Ceriani, IPIFF Novel Food Task Force Member, has preceded the following panel discussions, to which have intervened Stefano Perrone, Intesa Sanpaolo Head of Startup and Innovative SMEs Services, Ludovica Leone, Director of Global MBA Food and Wine, Bologna Business School, Sara Roversi, Founder of Future Food Institute and Executive Director of Food Innovation Program, Antonella Grassigli, IAG- Italian Angels for Growth, and Antonio Montanini, President of Taste Italy. Lastly, it was organised a Startup Panel, in which Wenda, together with other four startups that represent the most innovative scenario of the sector, introduced itself to the panel of experts and has displayed its innovative IoT solutions created for the sector of Food&Wine. All the attending startups will also take part into an acceleration program by Officine Formative of Intesa Sanpaolo, at Scuderia – Future Food Urban CooLab of Bologna.
It has been indeed an important appointment to disseminate Wenda’s knowledges and values: having them circulating in an ecosystem attentive to the issues of innovation, product quality and future nutrition, the innovative IoT solutions created by Wenda have captured everyone’s attention and have laid the groundwork for future productive meetings.
