My name is Stefano Marras. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Business Administration, Finance, Management and Law, and at the Department of Sociology and Social Research of the University of Milan-Bicocca, Italy. I manage the Street Food SQUARE Association (www.streetfoodsquare.org) and the Street Food Global Network (www.streetfoodglobalnetwork.net), an international, multidisciplinary network of academics, non-profit professionals, public managers working in this field.
I recently co-edited the volume Street Food. Culture, Economy, Health, and Governance (Routledge, 2014), that includes an article by FAO’s Renata Mirulla, Max Blanck, and Mauricio Rosales summarizing the outcomes of the first discussion “Street foods: the way forward for better food safety and nutrition”, successfully facilitated by Giorgia Nicolò in 2011.
