5th Annual Week of Italian Cuisine in the World 2020

November 16, 2020 - November 19, 2020

During the annual “Week of Italian Cuisine in the World 2020,” a series of events are planned at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This year’s edition at UW-Madison is dedicated to Italian food writer Pellegrino Artusi since 2020 marks the Bicentennial of the birth of Pellegrino Artusi, author of Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well (1891) and “father” of Italian cuisine. At UWMadison, Artusi figures rominently in our courses and academic activities, and the UW Library features several important editions of his book in its Special Collections. For a special video Casa Artusi a Forlimpopoli about Pellegrino Artusi and Casa Artusi in Forlimpopoli (Italy) click here: Casa Artusi Video.

In addition, here is an article from Special Collections at UW-Madison Libraries written on the occasion of the Week of Italian Cuisine in the World at UW-Madison.
