As has now become a traditional event, it’s time for the three “Autumn Evenings” for foodies! The common denominator for this year’s evenings will be life stories and anecdotes that this extraordinary dish evokes.
WEDNESDAY 28th OCTOBER 2015 – Faenza
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ‘ O FIORE MIO !
A STORY FROM NAPLES:
The story of the “PIZZERIA DA ATTILIO ALLA PIGNASECCA” told by ANTONIO MATTOZZI (Neapolitan writer and historian)
The Neapolitan pizza is the mum of all pizzas. Right from the second half of the 19th century, this
dish that is symbolic of Italian identity all over the world, came to life in Naples. Pizza was made at home and in small shops. It was a street food, folded in half like a book, and it must have cost very little because it was a part of the people’s staple diet. Attilio Bachetti is a son and grandson of this “art” and he is a great interpreter of this fantastic Neapolitan tradition.
On the other hand, Antonio Mattozzi is considered the historical memory of Neapolitan pizza. He is the author of a book concerning pizza called “Una storia napoletana: pizzerie e pizzaiuoli napoletani tra Sette e Ottocento” (A Neapolitan story: Neapolitan pizza restaurants and pizza cooks between the 18th and 19th centuries), published by Slow Food Editore and which is also going to be published in England.
The dinner will be accompanied by selection of wines by Les Caves des Pyrene, well known wine
distributor which selects small wineries capable of enhancing the character of the territories from
where the wines have originated. To conclude there will be a mountain of zabaione profiteroles.
Dinner will be served at 7.00 pm and at 9.00 pm. Cost per person: €. 25.00
50 places available.
