Today we get to know Mea libera tutti! a bit better. Mea libera tutti! was the first gluten free shop to open in Venise and in the Veneto region. Azzurra, a true pioneer and owner of Mea along with her husband Enrico, answers to our questions.
Chiara: Why gluten free?
Azzurra: Because I am the mother of a 10 years old child, Riccardo, who is celiac. I created a gluten free shop thinking of my son.
Chiara: What is Mea libera tutti?
Azzurra: It is a place where all children – celiac and not – are welcomed to come in and find something that they would like to eat. The selection of gluten free products that I offer include many brands – several are artisanal, others are organic or more mainstream – and in particularly I am focused on gluten free food for children. At Mea you can find all kinds of sweets, chips, chocolate, chewing gum, cookies, cakes that are labelled gluten free and therefore safe from any contamination with gluten. Besides I also sell some toys and cartoons. I wanted to create a place that is cheerful, colourful and of course, yummy!
Chiara: What is the gluten free food that you love the most?
Chiara: Gluten free is…
Azzurra: A lifestyle.
