a surprising way to explore the cinema-kitchen combination

22, 23 e 24 October 2022, h 19:30

Educational restaurant “Al Virtuoso”

The event is reserved for guests.

Chef Kaba Corapi, with artistic director of the festival Boris Sollazzo and journalist/film critic Alessandro De Simone, will take guests on an unprecedented journey into taste and cinema.
The trip will be a cinematic cross-section on the traces of the guiding theme of the festival: “Conflicts”, in a welcoming atmosphere, characterized by sharing and research.

The Chef will prepare in show cooking, with the collaboration of the students from Istituto Professionale Alberghiero di Stato Roberto Virtuoso, a menu freely inspired by the theme of the event.
On 22, 23 and 24 October, at the educational restaurant “Al Virtuoso”, starting at 19.30, the cuisine will intertwine with a lively and eclectic narrative, to offer the guests an evening of delicious food, intoxicating wines, stories, anecdotes and curious background on cinema.

The “cinecena” will be an opportunity for diners to discuss the theme of the festival and, above all, to network with the aim of strengthening an ecosystem of relationships, planning and creativity for the benefit of the Salerno area where the festival takes place.
The event is reserved for guests.
