Italians at the Table 1860-1960 is a photographic exhibition on until the end of October at the Villa Pisani of Stra National Museum (about forty minutes outside Venice proper). The show documents over a century of Italians doing what they do—eating and drinking, yes, but also celebrating, growing, preparing, and vending—through a collection of original photographs capturing ‘food-related’ moments ranging from public banquets to intimate family meals. Themes of nutrition, wartime scarcity and hunger, customs, and innovations in food production are also addressed. The villa’s icehouse and orangery will be open to visitors throughout the exhibit.
