Food is the paramount necessary of the people is a famous Chinese saying. Actually, diet has been highly valued by people all over the world. In the ancient monastic tradition, the refectory has been always the most welcoming and qualified environment from the aesthetic point of view. Just in Milano there is a supreme example around the world, of the artistic excellence of a convent refectory of St. Mary of the Graces,embellished with the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci and the Crucifixion by Donato Montorfano.
In recent times, the aesthetic, environmental and functional quality of places, objects, and facilities for eating together has grown somewhat everywhere and even significantly. In keeping with the theme of EXPO2015 Feeding the Planet , Energy for Life, Politecnico di Milano and Tongji University have decided to organzie this exhibition, in order to contribute a future improvement of these environments, and to disseminate thebest design culture that this field has produced in recent times.
