Community Market and Food Sharing


Milan hosts more and more organisations that approach food-related themes using the principles of the sharing economy. Among these organisations, some focus on food or on venues related to food, while others employ food as a means to face issues such as social integration, urban regeneration and cultural innovation. Dynamoscopio, an interdisciplinary research and cultural production organisation plays an active role within the realm of urban and suburban regeneration, socio-cultural innovation, co-production and start-ups, communication and technology. The visit will take place at Mercato Lorenteggio sharing hub, where Dynamoscopio will present some of its activities. The presentation will also include some projects and start-ups that operate in Milan’s food policy sector. Participants will have the chance to virtually ‘visit’ (by means of an app) MyFoody, a start-up which deals with issues related to food waste and L’Alveare che dice sì, which aims to shorten the food supply chain by directly linking producers and consumers.

Sharing hub: Mercato Lorenteggio
The suburbs provide new ways at looking at cities. At Mercato Lorenteggio, trade, culture and social responsibility merge in an innovative melting pot that turns it into a venue for socio-cultural exchange between Milan and its local communities. Today, Mercato Lorenteggio creates a collaborative system oriented towards the sharing of know-how, and goods and services between local networks (inhabitants, public and private stakeholders). This sharing hub reinterprets this space as an open-air lab with considerable potential to enhance the social and cultural resources of the neighbourhood.

Maximum capacity of the tour: 30 people
