Tasty Italian Stories depicts the relationship between stories, songs and food in the Italian tradition. Anecdotes, rhymes, fairy tales, dramas, tragedies, legends and songs: many great stories are intertwined with the act of eating. From remote history to more recent events, the stories, including a famous novella by Boccaccio freely adapted from the Decameron, will highlight the beauty and importance of food.
