A personal and family history narrated through food. Private food, that of affections and care, a parallel language, able to tell something more or something different from what the word says. Simple recipes scanding the story of a lifetime. Each dish, every preparation, recalls a memory fragment, a meeting, a period. Childhood, family relationships, love, political commitment, affections, maternity. Thus the '68 revolves around a pasta and beans, the father discussing with Nenni binds to an omelette of zucchini.
