The bread, which in Italy is the symbol of everyday food, is the object of an exhibition and a charity event at the Milan Triennale, which involves chefs, artists, designers and writers and their vision of bread, to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the Pane Quotidiano (Daily Bread) charity association. “Buoni come il pane” (As good as bread) is the title of the show.
Thirty personalities, twenty artists and ten chefs have donated their creativity to the charity project, curated by Alessandro Guerriero and Alessandra Zucchi, to make real eatable breads, ceramic sculptures, written texts and one photograph, which will be on display at the Triennale from 5 December 2018 to 13 January 2019. The ceramic sculptures, created by Bosa Ceramiche, will be assigned during a gala dinner on 4 December.
The proceeds will be entirely donated to Pane Quotidiano, the Milanese charity which every day distributes free food and comfort to the people in need.
The exhibition has been set up with the support of ArcelorMittal CLN and Scaffsystem.
