THIRD WEEK OF ITALIAN CUISINE IN THE WORLD

The popular Italian cuisine, loved and imitated around the world, is slowly fading, but many are trying to save it. Presented at the 2018 Venice Film Festival, I Villani is a documentary by Daniele De Michele, which follows the lives of four individuals discussing agriculture, fishing, farming, cheese-making and family. In their daily activities, these four peasants portray the countless forms of opposition to adopting the same culinary and cultural model worldwide.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring director, chef and “food activist” Daniele De Michele, aka Don Pasta, and award-winning cookbook author Joan Nathan. The conversation moderated by Sally Swift, co-creator and Managing Producer of the radio show The Splendid Table, will focus on themes such as cooking as a living heritage and wether sharing information between generations still exists and can survive in modern society.

Director: Daniele De Michele
Italy, 2018, 76 min 
Documentary in Italian with English Subtitles

A tasting of fine wine and delicacies celebrating the Italian region of Puglia will close the event thanks to the generous support of Fabiana Wines and Marra Forni.
