Abstract

This paper offers a brief overview of «the geography of food», a strand of research appeared in the last decade, merging into the so-called «critical food studies». It highlights how food is a topic which has been at the core of recent geographical debates in Italy and overseas. In the conclusion, the paper mentions Milan’s 2015 Expo and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme in order to emphasise that food is a crucial topic in contemporary politics, which demands geographers’ attention.
