The productive power of the sea will be recounted through its excellence, with a look at new culinary trends and the value that the Apulian catch and the products of fish farming, mussel farming and shellfish farming have acquired in recent years, without forgetting nutritional and environmental insights with a nutritionist and a freediving expert, protagonists together with the chefs of the “PugliadaMare” showcooking.
