As part of an effort to protect Italy's world-famous culinary tradition, the Italian government has signaled its support for a piece of the proposed law that would prohibit the production of lab-grown beef and other types of artificial meals.
In response to a petition that has received more than half a million signatures, the populist governing coalition that is led by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has vociferously expressed its support for traditional Mediterranean cuisine and its farmers, while vehemently opposing the Great Reset's push to replace authentic meat with lab-grown synthetic proteins. This opposition comes as a result of the fact that the petition has received more than half a million signatures.
The introduction of this law is in response to a series of executive orders that have been issued by the government prohibiting the use of flour made from insects, such as crickets and locusts, in the preparation of pizzas or pasta.
According to a report by Breitbart, Agriculture Minister Francesco Lollobrigida was quoted in Il Messaggero newspaper as providing an explanation for the decision of the government to support the ban on synthetic foods. He stated, "They are substandard foodstuffs. We are safeguarding the health and environment."
Lollobrigida continued by saying that if this trend were to gain market acceptance, it would lead to increased unemployment and social injustice and that the legislation would place Italy at the forefront of the campaign against counterfeit food. Lollobrigida said that the legislation would place Italy at the forefront of the campaign against counterfeit food.
Orazio Schillaci, the Minister of Health, echoed the sentiments expressed by Lollobrigida when he said, "We are guided by the principle of prevention and we seek to preserve our country's agri-food heritage. We believe in the Mediterranean diet." Lollobrigida's comments were made in response to Schillaci's statement.
The decision was made in reaction to the gathering of more than half a million petitions against the growth of synthetic meat by the agricultural company Coldiretti. If the legislation is passed and put into effect, those who are found to be in breach of the law might be subject to fines of up to €60,000 (or £53,000).
A "flash mob" was organized by supporters of the bill when it was declared that the government will support the law. The "flash mob" took place outside the Chigi Palace in Rome, which was built in the 16th century and is now the official house of Italy's prime minister.
It came as a complete surprise when Prime Minister Meloni appeared from her office to address the gathering. She said, "We can only rejoice with our farmers and Coldiretti's president a law that puts Italy at the forefront, especially on the topic of consumer safety."
"We are committed to ensuring that every citizen who eats here, who eats in the home of excellence, has the same opportunities to consume food that they know exactly where it comes from," she added. "We are committed to ensuring that every citizen who eats here, who eats in the home of excellence, eats in the home of excellence."
