The name Menscorpore comes from a line of verse written by the Latin poet Juvenal. “Mens sana in corpore sano” means, literally, a healthy mind in a healthy body. By understanding the indelible interdependence between the physical self and the psycho-emotional one, we interpret human health as a dynamic equilibrium. Since its creation in 2014, Menscorpore has offered a variety of different programs targeting physical-emotional and social-relational well-being. The organization is headquartered in Treviglio, east of Milan, our family’s home.

David Szanto

Communication Manager

I am a teacher and learner, a consultant and researcher, a cook and designer. I help individuals and organizations with projects related to food and education, developing marketing and communications tools, editorial content, strategy and training programs.

I started to cook at the age of two, according to my mother. Food has always played a central role in my life. It connects everything: love, life, family, culture, politics, creativity, death, environment, memory, decomposition. I feel like I am touching the universe when I ‘do’ food.

 In 2005, I was part of the first cohort of the Master in Food Culture & Communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences. I worked for UNISG for ten years after that, bringing to life a new master program and the fourteen-country Eco-Gastronomy Project.

More recently, I added a PhD to my experience, one focused eco-gastronomy, which I completed in 2015 at Concordia University in Montreal. In parallel, and in some ways because of my master experience at UNISG, I started practicing yoga and mediation in 2007, a connection that lives within me in the same ways I feel and think and do gastronomy.
