The Slow Food Association was founded in 1986 by Carlo Petrini in the Italian town of Bra, with the initial aim of counteracting the effects of fast food and fast life that were undermining healthy eating habits and lifestyle, promoting the disappearance of local food traditions, the general lack of interest in nutrition, the origins and flavors of food.
