Okay, so, I’ve written almost 1500 articles for COED, but this one right here, this may be my favorite. These kinds of articles keep me hopeful, they remind me that there is still good in this mad, mad world. It’s articles like these that make me feel like humans might know what we’re doing after all. It’s articles like these that make me truly understand the power of a dream, and how hard work and determination can turn that dream into reality.
Courtesy of the second greatest country on the planet, Italy, the world will soon have a FOOD THEME PARK. Nine square mile market? Yup. Four square miles of farmlands? Check. 7.2 square miles of restaurants? F*ckinggggggg CHECK.
The park will have gardens, fields, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, fish ponds, a market, stalls that highlight all aspects of Italian cuisine and drink from literally field to the fork. That means you can milk a cow and then turn that milk into cheese right there at the park. You’ll be able to mill harvested wheat from their fields and make pasta from it. There’ll be curing stations so you can learn how to make prosciutto and taste it at all the various stages. There’ll be wine makers and beer brewers to teach their methods. Professional chefs will be on hand to give lessons to everyone from kids to grandmas. There’ll be an entire market with specially made shopping bikes so you can shop the fruit, veg, protein, and products that were made/grown onsite. And the whole place will be powered by roof tile solar panels.
I mean, if that doesn’t sound like heaven on Earth to you, then you need to reevaluate your priorities because food is truly one of the true treasures in life.
