Three days to celebrate food on the run
This second edition of celebration of street food will see the Carroponte filled with trucks serving every imaginable kind of delicacy to be eaten on the spot, following on the tradition made popular in the US and enthusiastically developed and expanded in Italy.
Last year’s event welcomed some 15,000 visitors in three days, encouraging the organisers to repeat the performance this year.
Visitors will also enjoy side-shows of cultural, musical and artistic events around the theme of food on the run.
The gates will open on Friday from 16.00 to midnight, and Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 to midnight.
The Carroponte is near tram line 31, bus line 727 and metro stations Sesto Marelli or Sesto Rondò (M1) or Bignami (M5). The Carroponte (literally the “heavy-duty overhead crane”) is a celebrated example of post-industrial architecture, in which the former Breda locomotive factory was recycled by a team of architects into a cultural forum for concerts, screenings, meetings and other public events. Its new lease of life in the field of urban renewal started in 2006.
