Dragonfly close up
Dragonfly close up image. A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ἄνισος anisos, “unequal” and πτερόν pteron, “wing”, because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). Adult dragonflies are characterized by large, multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, sometimes with coloured patches, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the related group, damselflies (Zygoptera), which are similar in structure, though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold their wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen. Dragonflies are agile fliers, while damselflies have a weaker, fluttery flight. Many dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural colouration, making them conspicuous in flight. An adult dragonfly’s compound eyes have nearly 24,000 ommatidia each. (Wikipedia)

We are writing to share our project, Tempi di Recupero, with you. Born in Italy 6 years ago, Tempi di Recupero aims to increase awareness around food waste with an original and enjoyable approach. This year we decided to broaden our horizons and celebrate with a worldwide event – Tempi di Recupero Week. During this week, participants around the world will have the opportunity to share their visions of food upcycling. Tempi di Recupero Week also has a charity objective: part of the proceeds will be donated to two non-profit projects that are share our values.
Ready to learn more? From November 16 – 24 you have the opportunity to share with the world your own interpretation of food upcycling by creating a thematic menu item.We have attached additional information with further details about the week and the participation form.
