Florence, late 19th century. In the large kitchen of an eminent man from Romagna, the smell of sautéed vegetables, inks and lamp oil are mixing up. Secrets, anecdotes, ingredients and recipes are kept in a notebook, which is destined to become the world most famous cooking book, “Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well”, simply called “Artusi”, by the author’s name. Through historical reconstruction and fantasy, love and jealousy, the two great Italian actors Vito and Maria Pia Timo feature a funny comedy about the origin of the famous cooking book that unified the taste, the language and the souls of a whole nation. On December 31st a special toast for celebrating the New Year will be offered by Gino Fabbri Pasticcere.
