On November 16, 2010, the Mediterranean diet was declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

In addition to possessing beneficial nutritional elements for the human body, and therefore being considered for its dietary aspect, UNESCO also recognized the Mediterranean diet as a cultural element, a set of social, traditional and agricultural practices, as a lifestyle. The Mediterranean diet favors the intergenerational transmission of know-how and skills related to wine and food and more, and promotes intercultural dialogue between populations of the Mare Nostrum, all the while reinforcing their identity.
