Identità Golose, founded in 2004 by Italian food journalist Paolo Marchi, is a culinary organization whose mission is to highlight the best of contemporary Italian cuisine, showcase the culinary excellence of each Italian region, and honor the top Italian chefs who proudly blend traditional techniques with modern methods. The first Identità Golose event was held in Milano in 2005, and many more have been held since, each showcasing the greatest Italian and international chefs, pastry chefs, and artisanal producers. The success of Identità Golose in Italy eventually led to the launch of Identità London in 2009 and finally with an American audience in 2010.

This year, the international theme is "Don’t waste the planet; the truth is in the dish," representing how the restaurant industry and everyday lives are interconnected. The events this October will highlight how chefs around the entire world are no longer just ambassadors of taste and quality but also ambassadors of sustainability, good practices, and new techniques.
