Alla Carta #5
Text auf Englisch
For bi-annual Italian publication Alla Carta food is a way to approach cultural phenomenon from different angles. Issue 5 is a visually brilliant, cinematic and tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the Trimalchio’s Feast featured in ancient Roman writer Petronius’ Satyricon. McDonalds is mixed with art and fashion, there are full-blown prints of erotic frescoes found in the brothels of Pompeii, to read is an overview of cross-dressing in cinema, an essay on the consumption of symbolic foods and excerpts of Fellini’s notebook to his film Satyricon. And as with every issue Alla Carta takes us to breakfast, lunch and dinner with interesting artists.
