Description

In march 1790 king Federico IV of Denmark and Norway came to visit Florence; at the end of his stay there was an extraordinary party and a sumptuous reception. This event is celebrated with an exposition held in Palazzo Medici Ricciardi during the Festival of Europe in 2015. The contents of the exhibition are examined in depth by this volume, which has the sociocultural value of cooking, with its rules and its typologies, as its main theme, without neglecting the many symbolic, allegorical and religious implications. A path that winds through illuminated manuscripts and ancient books, exquisite artifacts ranging from Etruscan and Roman production until the VIII century, to demonstrate - in parallel to Expo 2015 - the importance of nutrition and food culture.show more
