A journey of 101 in mouth-watering big Milan stage, that extends far beyond the city limits and has its centre of gravity feed Expo2015 site. A map of the treasures of the throat, dotted 101 flags, from Brescia in Bordighera, in cremasco at Ossola, that correspond to as many places, each with its own history, a meaning and a peculiarity it deserves, to be narrated.
One hundred places, % specificity.
