31st international exhibition of organic and natural products
Two major events took place on the SANA City calendar: the Festa del Bio, SANA's Organic Festival, on Saturday 7 September, and the WES - World E-bike Series from 6 to 8 September.
SANA partnered FederBio to stage Bologna’s fourth Festa del Bio organic festival. Panel discussions, show cooking and presentations by experts in the organic and natural products sector have been on hand on Saturday 7 September in the ground floor courtyard of the Palazzo Re Enzo, SANA’s Festa del Bio organic festival.
Interesting talk shows have been staged to explore every aspect of the organic sector, from who produces what and how, to the challenges and hurdles that need tackling to give us all a healthier and more sustainable future.
Let’s go on a photographic BIO-hunt
Roaming around the historic city centre of Bologna snapping #Bio-themed photos. Participants could enter up to three pictures and post them on their Instagram profile using #festadelbio2019.
Chefs took centre stage to present scrumptious dishes that fit perfectly into a healthy diet, safeguard the environment, use produce that suits the season, and reflect local traditions.
SANA Bologna has been chosen to host the Italian leg of the WES e-Bike Series, the first international electric bike championship.
