Food and Seventh art play an important role in human life. In cinema as in food we project our desires and our fears. The bond that unites them has no barriers, no cultural or geographical boundaries. Through cinema we watched, tasted and explained the food. Often the film has become the showcase for the eating habits and gastronomic evolution of a country. But through food in the cinema, we have also grasped the psychology, styles, ideas and “feeling” of peoples. In our country, where the kitchen plays a really important role, there are so many films that have had gastronomy as their central theme and through them we have seen how Italy has changed in more than a century of history.


"La cultura è un bene comune primario come l’acqua i teatri le biblioteche i cinema sono come tanti acquedotti."



"Il cinema non è un pezzo di vita è un pezzo di torta."



"La fotografia è verità è il cinema è verità 24 volte al secondo."

    Nora Ephron

    Julie & Julia

    Julie & Julia is a 2009 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Nora Ephron starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Stanley Tucci, and Chris Messina. The film contrasts the life of chef Julia Child in the early years of her culinary career with the life of young New Yorker Julie Powell, who aspires to cook all 524 recipes in Child’s cookbook in 365 days, a challenge she described on her popular blog that made her a published author.[2]

    Ephron’s screenplay is adapted from two books: My Life in France, Child’s autobiography written with Alex Prud’homme, and a memoir by Powell, Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen (later retitled Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously). Both of these books were written and published in the same time frame (2004–06). Powell’s book was based on her blog The Julie/Julia Project,[3] where she had started documenting online her daily experiences cooking each of the 524 recipes in Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The film is the first major motion picture based on a blog.[4]
