THE HUB OF MEDITERRANEAN TASTE

CULTURE QUARTET COMPETITION

LEAGUE OF WRITERS

THE HUB OF MEDITERRANEAN TASTE.

Made in Albania

The idea of the project is to use the League of writers as a center for the promotion of the Albanian and Mediterranean wine & food culture inside the city of Tirana. The aim is to realize a structure capable to be an international point of reference about feeding culture, agriculture and sustainable development.

What happens inside the League?

The building will host different functions inside, some of these will be temporary,

others permanent:

– A bookshop on wine and food culture, both Albanian and Mediterranean, selling of professional and traditional tools for cooking, selling of biological and local products;

– A multifunctional hall capable to host meetings and debates about food and wine culture, about food production and sustainable agriculture;

– A school oriented on traditional food and cooking, with classrooms equipped to host courses and workshops;

– A cafè, which can work as a meeting space independent from the opening hours of the other activities;

– An administrative area to manage and organize all the different activities.

How it relates to the city of Tirana?

The new “Hub” is a public building that will offer services to the city. It will be accessible and open for daily activities, weekly meetings, or monthly events. Thanks to the presence of the courtyard, cafe on the ground floor, in the space of the portico, will also be a place of exchange and a daily meeting point. The new “Hub” will be for the city of Tirana a benchmark for the gastronomic culture, to promote it and for its spread.
