From 20th to 24th of March 2023 the LTT in Rome of the Zero Waste Catering Lab project was held which involved students and teachers of the Croatian and Slovenian schools involved in the project.
The LTT was organized by and by AEPER. On the first day, the participants visited a Zero Waste Certified Restaurant "Rosso Eat Drink Stay" where Marco Tarnani illustrated the Zero Waste policies implemented in his restaurant and the other quality procedures that allow the restaurant to provide an ever-better service.
Later, at the headquarters of AEPER, Dr. Anna Ruggeri spoke about the commitment of AEPER associated companies to reduce food waste.
With a short walk in the midst of the wonders of Rome, the group moved to the "Gelateria Pica" where, in addition to enjoying an excellent ice cream, they were able to learn about the Zero Waste policies implemented in a traditional Ice Creamery.

On this day, Agrocamera, the special company of the Rome Chamber of Commerce dedicated to the development of agriculture and the enhancement of typical products, hosted students, teachers and managers of Galileo and AEPER.
Dr. Silvia Paolini, an expert agronomist, welcomed the participants with a broad illustration of the activities of Agrocamera, the policies put in place to promote typicality and also the new projects including the HORIZON SWITCH project.
The day ended with a “pizza experience”. In the certified "Zero Waste" Pizza Forum restaurant.
The students and teachers first saw how an authentic Neapolitan pizza is prepared with natural ingredients and how some residues are recovered by frying the dough "little angels" and then each of them prepared, with the help of the pizza maker, his own pizza which they then ate with taste!
