Expo exhibit fetes ancient food

Coldiretti to open show From Prehistory to the Bible

(ANSA) - Milano, September 23 - An exhibit on ancient food and primitive agriculture will open its doors Thursday in the Coldiretti pavilion at Milan Expo 2015. The show, entitled From Prehistory to the Bible, illustrates key agricultural products that have proven essential through the centuries, from mythical 'manna' to cooked wine, from mead to eikorn wheat, the genetically oldest variety of cultivated wheat. Eikorn is a native of north-central Turkey and has been found in some archeological artifacts dating back 23,000 years.
    The Italian farmers' association exhibit seeks to demonstrate the commitment farmers have shown in protecting a biodiversity that contributes to making Italian agriculture among the most environmentally responsible in Europe.
