The name EATALY is a fusion of two words: EAT and ITALY.
As a result, Eataly stands for “Eating Italian,” but not only Italian Food. “Eating Italian” also represents the great Mediterranean diet and cuisine, the history and the food culture of Italy, the ease to prepare its dishes, and the many qualities that Italy has to offer.
After five years of research and hard work, the first Eataly opened its doors in Torino on January 26, 2007, when an old vermouth factory was transformed into Eataly Torino Lingotto – the very first multifunctional marketplace dedicated to Italian excellence in the world.
And the rest is history. Since then, Eataly has expanded, with more than 40 locations throughout Italy and the world.
