Abstract

Slow food is an international movement, and the study analyzes its relationship with hospitality and tourism in southern Brazil. Thirteen convivia were surveyed from the following categories: proximity and contiguous area of hospitality, permanence, freedom, and sovereignty of the place, identities, and solidarity action. As a result, relations with places, commensality, and hospitality are more evident; on the other hand, the empowerment of members, the defense of products at risk of extinction, entrepreneurship, and the link with tourism are in the early stage of development.
