    (ANSA) - MILAN, JULY 22 - Young Chinese chefs will be learning Italian traditions and recipes from Italian Gambero Rosso culinary experts. Culture and food diplomacy will be showcased at Expo Milano 2015 after five agreements signed by the two countries for culture and creative industries. The accords were promoted by Francesco Rutelli's Priorità Cultura association. The bilateral agreements were signed at the Expo after the 'Second Italy-China Forum: Cultural Diplomacy, Creative Industries', in which the two countries' institutions and representatives took part. ''China, which is a superpower, sees Italy as a cultural superpower,'' Rutelli said. ''And it is not looking only at our past and our UNESCO sites. It is also looking at design, fashion, architecture and food, of course.'' The 'Food and Cuisine Training' agreement involves Gambero Rosso and the Fengtai Vocational High School, the Beijing-based, most important training school for Chinese chefs. Expo commissioner Giuseppe Sala and Milan mayor Giuliano Pisapia spoke at the conference. Pisapia noted that ''China and the Chinese are an integral part of Milan's rejuvenation. Our cultures are close in their ability to look towards the future.'' (ANSA).
