“Communication for Food Protection” (COMFECTION) is a EU-funded research project led by Simona Stano,
in collaboration with the University of Turin (UNITO) and New York University (NYU).
Our aim is to identify the communicative and cultural mechanisms through which food myths and narratives originate and spread widely through contemporary media, as well as to understand which communicative tools and strategies
can be used to oppose such phenomena, so as to facilitate a correct interpretation and use of food communication
by media users. Furthermore, the project intends to provide stakeholders and scientists with effective communicative tools and guidelines to foster food protection.
