Conviviality, the pleasure of spending time with others, is one of the fundamental elements of the Mediterranean diet, so much so that it was put at the base of the “new food pyramid” proposed by INRAN (Istituto Nazionale per la Ricerca degli Alimenti e della Nutrizione).

Meals have become a significant ritual and taken on a symbolic value amongst people of the Mediterranean. Thanks to the concept of eating together, in addition to nourishment, the cultural foundations of interpersonal relationships are reinforced, guaranteeing identity, and social and cultural continuity, both for the individuals that make up communities, and the communities as a whole.
