Come find out what foods are good for our health and the secrets of our “anatomical machine”. In addition, for the smallest, creativity and tomato-making workshops, unique and only “fruit of love”, which we will discover the benefits and secrets, thanks to “His Majesty’s Identity Card: The Tomato“. ACSIAN onlus will show us through audiovisual activities how nutrition can safeguard our health, starting with the knowledge of our DNA.
