    Chewing the Fat – An Oral History of Italian Foodways from Fascism to Dolce Vita
    Saturday, Feb. 18 at 10 am EST

    Zoom link will be emailed to registrants before the event.

    Karima Moyer-Nocchi will give a live virtual lecture based on her book: Chewing the Fat – An Oral History of Italian Foodways from Fascism to Dolce Vita. This highly engaging and visually driven presentation will examine ways in which the politics of the Italian Fascist era (1922 to 1943) influenced the Italian culinary identity from a socio-cultural perspective, and the role it played in the conceptual development of Italian cuisine as we know it today.

    The lecture will explore the tenets of oral history, and then look specifically at how this method of data collection opens a unique window into food history research. Moyer-Nocchi analyzes the notion of “authenticity” and reveals how some of the best-loved myths of Italian food are part of an invented set of traditions. That view is balanced through a closer look at how traditions, invented or otherwise, play an important part in societal healing and cultural progression in Italy. The presentation will conclude with a performance of selected excerpts from the book.
