From Father to Son is the latest chapter of a journey that started last year with Earth Defenders. A trip designed by Lavazza, in collaboration with Slow Food, to witness and celebrate the intimate relationship between people and the land.
The horizon of the journey moves in Central and South America, telling, with the eye of Joey L., a generational shift between parents and sons. Thirteen stories of farm workers who become together the metaphor of the whole project: our future is written in our roots.
It is the knowledge of fathers, daily handed down by working together, that will enable the young generation to look forward and dream over, cultivating the relationship with the land and its products, through the principles of sustainability.

Antonia is a woman of nature and tradition. A white dress tells the culture that she loves and protects. The family as a value, the land and agriculture as a treasure.

Being Guayù means a lot. It is a pride.

What I want to teach my children is to never forget our traditions.

Almost desert. The wind follows the movements of a ritual dance, accompanying and telling the story of an important tradition . The land gives what Guayu’s community grows.

It was difficult to start, but now people’re following us and they’re starting cultivate the field.

Thanks to Slow Food we returned to our ancestral activity: the cultivation of corn, beans, squash and melons.
