A scene from C'eravamo tanto amati by Ettore Scola (1974)
How many meals have been depicted in movies? How many secrets and intimate moments of family lives have been set around Italian stoves and tables? Since the Fifties, by combining food and cinema, the Italian film industry has not only been a precious lens to understand the country itself, but also a mean to experience its daily life.
On the occasion of the 5th Week of Italian Cuisine in the World, join us for a delicious expedition spanning over more than fifty years of Italian cinema. Through images, clips, memories and – last but not least – recipes, Italian journalist and food passionate Laura Delli Colli will unravel the evolution of Italian taste in film, and explore some of the most iconic foodie moments of our cinema as recounted and interpreted by movie icons like Federico Fellini, Alberto Sordi, Sofia Loren and Ugo Tognazzi.
