For more info, see http://www.umbra.org/food Is local food better for the environment? How do changes in eating reflect larger changes in history and economics? In this industrial age, why is agrobusiness still such a central part of so many economies? The Food Studies Program at the Umbra Institute challenges students to attempt to answer these questions and more while living in Perugia to study food in Italy. The footage is from the various workshops, as well as trips to Parma, Modena, and the Agriturismo 'Le Burge.' This short video gives an overview of the Food Studies Program.
