Il centro storico ed il lungolago di Castiglione del Lago, uno de I Borghi più Belli d’Italia, si apprestano a diventare, per la 12ma volta, la patria del cioccolato (ma anche del commercio, ndr) equo, solidale e biologico grazie ad Altrocioccolato 2012Dal 12 al 14 Ottobre 2012 mostra mercato, laboratori, incontri, dibattiti, workshop, mostre e percorsi sensoriali, musica ed intrattenimento.

Tema di questa nuova edizione: “Si Può Fare – Il Lavoro nella Rete Solidale”. Commercializzazione diretta, incontri e dibattiti sul diverso modo di approcciare il lavoro delle realtà solidali, cosa che la manifestazione ha sempre proposto nel tempo, e gli innumerevoli vantaggi sociali, economici ed umani che ne scaturiscono. A maggior ragione in un periodo di crisi come questo, Altrocioccolato 2012 vuol dimostrare come un diverso approccio al lavoro ed al consumo sia possibile. Ed efficace.
Spazio anche al rapporto lavoro-dignità: tutela dei diritti dei produttori del sud del mondo coinvolti nelle filiere equosolidali; una delle novità di questa edizione sarà la presenza delle filiere della legalità, che in Italia producono attraverso i beni confiscate alle mafie, le economie carcerarie e di integrazione (SOS Rosarno, Vestiamo la libertà, Capodarco, Ora d’aria Lab, Solidale Italiano).

La kermesse inizierà venerdì 12 Ottobre 2012 alle ore 15:00 con l’apertura della Mostra Mercato equosolidale e biologica tra le piazze, le vie del centro storico ed il Giardino degli Olivi. Nella zona commerciale potrete trovare:

  • cioccolata delle centrali di importazione equosolidali;
  • prodotti delle Botteghe del Mondo;
  • cioccolateria artigianale italiana, artigiani italiani che usano materie prime da agricoltura biologica o da filiera equosolidale;
  • prodotti di Cooperative Sociali;
  • Nuova Agricoltura, con la presenza dei produttori a km 0 e biologici;
  • Genuino Clandestino;
  • artigianato di strada.

La mostra mercato nel primo giorno chiuderà alle ore 20:00. Sabato 13 Ottobre 2012 rimarrà aperta dalle 09:00 alle 22:00, domenica 14 09:00-20:00.

Altre novità di Altrocioccolato 2012 saranno la birra al cacao bio e, ai giardini della scuola, la Trasimeno Street Fish Food. Quest’ultima sarà un’area dove la Cooperativa Pescatori del Lago Trasimeno proporrà cibo di strada con prodotti da pesca sostenibile e piatti equosolidali, come ad esempio l’hamburger di pesce carassio e carpa. La Trasimeno Street Fish Food osserverà i seguenti orari: 12 Ottobre dalle 17:00 alle 21:0013 Ottobre 12:00-21:00; domenica 14 Ottobre 2012 dalle 12:00 alle 20:00.

Non mancheranno certamente arte, musica, intrattenimento ed eventi collaterali. Ad esempio la mostra “Le Stanze dei Sensi”, un percorso sensoriale guidato in quattro tappe sul cioccolato siciliano equosolidale, che permetterà ai visitatori di vivere “fisicamente” la lavorazione del cibo degli Dei. Costo € 2,50, max 30 persone (a turno).
Per quanto riguarda la musica, in tutte e 3 le giornate potrete trovare “Un’Altramusica…musica da e di strada…”: in quattro postazioni del centro storico venerdì dalle 15:00 alle 20:00 Matteo Skifanoia13 Ottobre dalle 10:00 alle 22:00 percorsi di Manouche (Gipsy Jazz) sulle tracce di Chocolat, con Maurizio Geri e gli ensemble di jazz gitano; nella giornata conclusiva, stessi orari, ai percorsi di Manouche si aggiungerà IONONSO+CHISONOFrancesco Federici.
