Italian food is prepared with care and passion and culinary imagery plays a prominent place in Italian films.
This four-session education program on Italian Cinema and Food, paired with Italian food and wine, offers participants much food for thought to chew on as they partake in the viewing and discussion of images from classic Italian cinema and a recent feature-length film.
Session #1 – Antipasto. Food as a Sign of Optimism, Wealth and Health
Whet your appetite with an Introduction to Italian Cinema and the viewing of the documentary Quando l’Italia mangiava in bianco e nero/When Italy ate in black and white (Andrea Gropplero, Istituto LUCE, 2016), in which well-renowned Italian actors from the 40’s to the late 60’s are eating Italian food.
Discussion led by Roberta K. Waldbaum, Ph.D
Professor Waldbaum teaches Italian language, literature, culture and film in the Department of Languages & Literatures at the University of Denver where she holds the Anna Maglione-Sie Endowed Professorship in Italian Culture.
