In Tel Aviv, Italian cuisine has become a comic strip

Ambasciata Tel Aviv
A Tel Aviv la cucina italiana diventa un fumetto

On the occasion of the VI Week of Italian Cuisine in the World, the Italian Cultural Institute in Tel Aviv is proposing a digital exhibition to discover Italian cuisine through the stories of comic book authors: from 22 November to 2 December, images, texts and interviews will accompany readers on a journey of Italian cuisine as drawn. A project curated by MaMa Comics.

Comics are two of the elements of Italian culture that have enjoyed renewed attention from critics and the public alike. Comics are an ingredient in both Italian cuisine and publishing. So, it will come as no surprise to learn that many Italian cartoonists have chosen to devote their cartoons to the pleasures of the table. A tasty union that has resulted in real recipe books: stories dedicated to the value of tradition and memory, appreciated by the palate and the eye.

Through images, in-depth analysis and video interviews with the authors, visitors to the online exhibition will be able to discover the Italian recipes collected by the nineteenth-century gastronome Pellegrino Artusi and recounted by Alberto Rebori, Brian Freschi and Ste Tirasso. Visitors will discover the importance of family traditions in the work of Squaz; the aromatic herbs shrouded in mystery narrated by Giulio Macaione; the recipe book for gourmet cartoonists by Ariel Vittori, Laura Guglielmo, and Claudia ‘Nuke’ Razzoli; the secrets of tasting a good glass of wine, collected and illustrated by Francesco Scalettaris and Gio di Qual; and the products grown on land seized from organised crime, in the pages told by Giacomo Taddeo Traini.
