Italian rice community is all charged up for the International Expo 2015, which will take place in Milan from May 1 to October 31, 2015. If some artist is taking the opportunity to design a roof top terrace on a commercial complex in Milan, some others are planning to use the event to promote rise dishes in European school canteens.

The rice estate Tenuta Colombara in the Italian town Vercelli and global food chain Slow Food International are planning to use the ancient Roman tradition “Giovedì Gnocchi”, which encouraged people in Rome to cook potatoes on Thursdays, in European schools through a project called “On Wednesday?

The project also encourages school children to partecipate in a rice culinary competition.
