Fa' la cosa giusta! is a multifaceted event including conferences, lectures, round tables and seminars on all topics related to green economy and culture; with practical laboratories and workshops for adults and children (food and wine tasting, cooking, gardening...); art and photo exhibitions; entertainment like concerts, street art, performances and clowning; and restaurant and catering areas with a choice of menus for all tastes (vegan, vegetarian, organic, local products).
Recent years have been marked by an increasing consumers' awareness about their role in making "green choices" to guarantee a sustainable growth of the planet. In Italy as well as worldwide, the quest for products and services that combine quality and innovation with respect for people and the environment is gaining more and more attention. Since its launch in 2004, Fa' la cosa giusta! has aimed at matching demand and supply, and today it is widely recognised as the national benchmark for conscious consumption and a sustainable lifestyle. 67.000 visitors came to the event in 2012, of which were 2.000 students from primary/secondary schools. 700 exhibitors were present and 270 appointments took place.
