Come back, renewed and richer, ‘Banks of taste’, the two-day event organized by Cna Pisa and Toscana Sapori which, for its tenth edition, gives an appointment at Logge di Banchi on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November.

Matteotti and Banca di Lajatico offers a showcase and a lounge open and interactive to all those who wish to know the principles of nutrition and gastronomy with the related historical, environmental and health aspects.
The reuse of food waste will be the added value of the event which, for this edition, will also host Cna’s crafts and artistic crafts, offering the city an all-round experiential opportunity where food, art and craftsmanship will network with itineraries inclusive favored by master craftsmen in the fields of ceramics, weaving and paintings on canvas. This edition will also open its arms to solidarity: in fact, there will be a stand organized by the association ‘Il Sorriso di Andrea’, the charity association created to remember Andrea Baldini, the boy who died prematurely in March 2020 following an exhausting fight against a rare tumor. During the event it will be possible to buy artisan panettone made by the Fratelli Sbrana pastry shop in San Giuliano Terme and the proceeds from the sales will be entirely dedicated to the purchase of Christmas gifts for the little patients of the Aoup Pediatric Oncohematology department where Andrea also fought his battle.
“The future and the restart must precisely start from the supply chain, from our food and wine and artisan excellence and above all from the synergies and virtuous processes that associations, organizations and institutions have the duty to promote and foster. Only through participation, sharing and inclusive events like this one. we can avoid fast and hit and run tourism by giving value to our producers, the territory and the city that has so much to offer “. Valter Tamburini, president of Toscana Sapori Valentina Giambastiani and president of the Pisan cooks association Stefano Fantozzi.
To the Councilor for Production of the Municipality of Pisa Paolo Pesciatini: “Ban di Gusto is an important initiative that enhances the extraordinary nature of our excellent companies. quality tourism. value of our gastronomic specialties that contrast with the standardization of tastes “.
