Ladispoli – The collaboration between AIC Lazio and the municipality for celiac disease continues
In Ladispoli, the collaboration continues Between AIC Lazio (Italian Celiac Disease Association) and the municipality. After the successes of the two booths at the last Artichoke Festivals, a conference on celiac disease will be held on May 21 at 5 p.m. at the council chamber piazza Falcone.
The leadership of the AIC’AIC will present a project that will debut ahead of the’upcoming beach season. To the event are invited, in addition to celiacs and all other interested people, the operators of the sector for a first approach that marks the’start of a path by which in addition to teaching how to prepare gluten-free food, we present checks and monitoring of the case.
“They are 100.000 the diagnosed – said Dr Beans, AIC Lazio president – of which 10.000 in Latium alone, but the interesting fact is that 9 out of 10 people do not know they have celiac disease, so the real number is 10 times larger”. The Department of Tourism in collaboration with the Department of Social Policies and the Department of Productive Activities wants to sensitize the fabric of the city so that these people have a relational life like others, avoiding their marginalization whether they are citizens or tourists.
“For this reason – said l’councillor for social policies, Roberto Ussia – we want to promote a series of agreements as well as with restaurateurs, with all the production activities concerned also involving schools, associations and cooperatives.”
“Ladispoli and the’whole of our territory of Southern Etruria – said the Tourism delegate and councilor for the Metropolitan City of Rome, Federico Ascani – Must be ready to welcome everyone to host facilities. Our sea and our beauties in general will have to be increasingly welcoming also from the point of view of food, increasing the quality of receptivity. We are keen to include everyone in our offer, it would be nice if this summer in all bars we would also find a gluten-free croissant. It is essential to teach food operators how to move in this area. A coastline such as ours must offer all the alternatives so that integration is substance.”
The conference was included in the national celiac disease week to be held May 16-22, an’initiative that for more than 35 years has been committed to changing the lives of people with celiac disease and their families for the better. The “week” is an information and awareness initiative aimed at the general public and the media.
“Ladispoli – concluded Ascani – is proud to be able to host such a prestigious initiative. The whole city and all friends from neighboring municipalities are invited to participate.”.
