Join Stefani Belli of La Lingua La Vita Italian language and cultural school in Umbria, Italy, for “ITALIA: dove il cibo è un’arte!” (Italy: Where Food Is An Art”), a lecture and tasting at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. This lively lecture presents Italy in all its culinary glory, surveying the love of good food from ancient Rome to the present day.
Belli shows how the recurrent theme of cuisine has been depicted in Italian art, literature, opera, and cinema. The lecture includes a tasting of “the gold of Umbria,” extra virgin olive oil from the heart of Italy. Learn about the precious golden fluid’s ancient origins, variety of uses, and health benefits.
