with Jacopo Fo

IN ITALIAN WITH SIMULTANEOUS TRANSLATION


Millions of Italians endlessly discuss the healthiest way to eat. Health-fanatic fever is sky-high. Food intolerances are in full swing and it’s open hunting season on gluten. Ranks of overweight citizens are tightening their belts and signing up for fitness classes, yoga, Nordic walking and holistic rebirthing.

The progressive movement is depressed… The post-macrobiotics who tell us that eating whole foods and no meat will make you a better person are going strong, but then along comes another group who says “Are you crazy? Our stomach is only made to digest raw foods!”

This entertaining evening will explore organic food and dietary habits, involving the audience in a direct and playful way, denouncing food-related manias and clichés.
