What does FiloCiboSofia mean? At first it may sound strange, but in fact it is composed of three parts: “filo” which is Greek for “love”; “cibo” which is Italian for “food”, and “sofia” which is Greek for “wisdom”: love food with wisdom.

So FiloCiboSofia Slow Life is the name I have given for a proposed lifestyle in which we use food as a tool in order to slow down the frenetic rhytm of our daily lives.

This is a lifestyle which allows us to thumb our noses at the fast-paced world when we are at the table. There we can retrieve and remember our values, our patience, listening to ourselves and to others. This is a lifestyle in which we can retrieve ourselves and our awareness of the surrounding beauty.

The society in which we live doesn’t always allow us to take our time but at the table we can! So, during our meals, let’s switch off our phones, the “to do list” in our brains and let’s really enjoy this moment of truce in which we can recharge our batteries. This is finally our moment.

Self respect

To love oneself is the first step towards loving one’s body and knowing how to respect it

Freedom to eat

Eating becomes a pleasure, not sufferance and sacrifice


Change calls for perseverance, through joy and awareness
