Matera European Capital of Culture 2019
Matera, Italy

"Breadway-Le vie del pane", was a Festival of food and design that animated the Piccianello district in Matera. Three days of workshops, artistic performances, shows and installations highlighted how bread is the food that unites all societies but differentiates them at the same time. A strong element of identity that talks about the relationship with the land, the work and the table of each population. In Matera's culture, bread is a place, that of the "communal oven", where housewives brought their own dough with bread stamps on it to recognize it once baked; bread is craftsmanship, that of the stamps with the initials of the head of the family; it is neighborhood, because people gathered to knead the bread and prepare the shapes for the entire week. A story that passes from generation to generation, like the mother dough that is renewed to be the bread of tomorrow.
