The term Blue Zone is used to identify a specific geographical area where the quality and life expectancy is decidedly higher than the rest of the planet.
Every year these areas represent the starting point for carrying out numerous and important studies in different disciplinary fields.
The territory of these areas is characterized by the presence of good living practices which, when combined, create the perfect definition of “sustainable”.
Sustainability is reflected in all areas of the life of the inhabitants of the Blue Zones: environment, life, nutrition and sociality. The perfect harmony between all these factors makes the life of the inhabitants of the Blue Zones unique and long-lasting.
Over the years, five Blue Zones have been identified around the world: Ogliastra in Sardinia, Okinawa in Japan, Nicoya in Costa Rica, Icaria in Greece and Loma Linda in California.
