In the host of the historical centre of Naples, the ancient complex of San Domenico Maggiore hosts until January 10th 2016 the Neapolitan Food and Farming Exhibition, MAGNA.
The idea of the show organizers is to guide the public through the discovery of one of the world’s most ancient cuisines, which gave birth to the philosophy of the renowned Mediterranean diet, already recognized as world heritage. A fist-rate location to allow good taste and beauty to mix: The Angevin age complex has progressively enriched itself with the works of the greatest Neapolitan artists, and the convent was the studying location of Thomas Aquinas and Giordano Bruno. The exhibition puts together local products reproducing a typical Neapolitan vegetable garden in a box, with multimedia tools which allow to further investigate the single ingredients of the Mediterranean diet, such as bread and pizza, oil, tomatoes, fruit and vegetables, cereals, legumes and oily fish. The market too is represented through the work benches of ancient professions, work of the well-known Maestri of the Neapolitan Presepe craftsmanship Ferrigno and Di Virgilio. In the large frescoed room of the ex-dining hall of the complex, an arts collective puts together Neapolitan contemporary and 16th century works to analyse the theme of Naples and food in all of its aspects. Not to mention thematic events, food tasting weekends, and guided visits with food experts.
The show is open every day from 10 am to 7 pm
if an event is in place: from 8 pm to 12 am.
