Week of Italian Cuisine in the World: Lecture by Marino Niola (Suor Orsola Benincasa University, Naples - Italy)

“Gastronomia e democrazia: Pizza, pasta e altri Italian food” (in Italian)

Event Details

Wednesday, November 7, 2018
5-6 p.m.
Niola discusses the link between Italian gastronomy and democracy across centuries, focusing on popular, inexpensive, sustainable, democratic food items such as pasta and pizza that are part of the Mediterranean diet, defined by Marino Niola and Elisabetta Moro as an “anti-diet.” Both the Mediterranean diet and the “Pizzaiuolo” art of making Neapolita pizza are included in the UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
