Thousands of dinners in Italy and in Europe, telling the culinary traditions of thousands of families
How does it work?
It’s very simple, all you need is a family recipe and a story connected to it. Then you organize a dinner inviting your family and friends, reserving couple of spots at the table for strangers. You cook the main dish and everyone else brings something to add. During the preparation and the dinner you record everything with pictures and videos and share on social media, we will aplificate on our channels and you become part of our community!Participate
It all starts from the material culture, specifically from the food, as a catalyst for cultural identity. Dinners, preparations, mums, dads, grandparents, children, grandchildren. The family opens up to the world. Thanks to the dinner device/medium.Upcoming dinners
Every dinner becomes a tangible memory… a ceramic plate. Every plate is unique and represents an organised dinner, and the mother with the recipe of the evening. Every mother / father / grandmother / grandfather etc, who has organised a dinner will have their plate to remember the dinner and the recipe they prepared.
Thousands of dinners to generate thousands of recipes and stories, all documented online and through social channels, creating a big digital community and online archive.Visit the archive
