Artigianato e Palazzo | Family Recipes
La Mostra ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO botteghe artigiane e loro committenze è nata nel 1995, da un’idea di Neri Torrigiani e promossa dalla principessa Giorgiana Corsini, principalmente per rivalutare e rinquadrare ai giorni nostri la figura dell’artigiano e del suo lavoro, considerandolo alta espressione di qualità e di tecnica, legato sì alla committenza, ma insistendo sull’idea di un artigianato per sua natura “moderno”, senza con questo dimenticare l’elemento fondamentale della tradizione.

Among the highly successful events created around the exhibition is “Family Recipes”, coordinated by food writer Annamaria Tossani.

It is an idea that also involves the culinary arts with the goal of highlighting and promoting the close link between contemporary food culture and that of old family recipes and traditional wisdom.

It involves daily encounters dedicated to Italy’s food culture.

As the guests talk, famous chefs offer their versions of a number of “old” recipes from a contemporary standpoint, preparing them in front of an ever-larger and curious audience.

“Family Recipes” is a “satellite” event of ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO that was created in 2014 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the exhibition, and the coming edition is being held for the eighth time.



At a time of renewal, save the date for FAMILY RECIPES – coordinated by food writer Annamaria Tossani – in cooperation with the School of Culinary Arts Cordon Bleu of Florence – the oldest academy of its kind in Tuscany – which, this year, for the first time will have a partner, the Atelier Fornasetti, whose excellence in design and decoration is acknowledged throughout the world.

FAMILY RECIPES will travel back into history, examining the evolution of customs and food culture of our country also through the attentive and inquisitive observation of important works of art.



Directors of important Italian Museums will exchange ideas on the topic of discussion every day at 6pm in the Giardinetto delle Rose. They will propose recipes inspired by famous works of art or family memories, providing an opportunity for reflection on the recent phenomenon of Museum restaurants serving Haute Cuisine.

The preparation of their dishes will be entrusted to the culinary instructors of the School of Culinary Arts Cordon Bleu and carried out live in the kitchen set up by Riccardo Barthel.

At the end of each showcooking session, the public will be invited to taste the results of each culinary experiment served on the exclusive Fornasetti porcelain plates from the “Theme and Variations” series, finely decorated by hand.



Thursday 16 SeptemberStefano Casciu, Director of the Polo Museale (Museum Network) of Tuscany will present Apple Strudel with reference to the still lifes of the Tuscan painter, Bartolomeo Bimbi (Settignano 1648- Florence 1729) – for which he curated the catalogue for the Turin exhibition “Bartolomeo Bimbi. Eccentric nature” – which are a valuable source of scientific documentation on the local products at the time of the Medici: “Bimbi illustrated vegetables, fruit and plants that stand out for their extraordinary or exceptional features, their size, eccentric shape or exotic origin, which were to decorate the rooms of the rustic villa ‘La Topaia’, built close to the Vineyards of the Grand Duke.”.


Friday 17 September the name of the Museum Director will be disclosed in September


Saturday 18 September – Martina Bagnoli, Director of the Gallerie Estensi will present “ll mondo a casa. Di nature morte e piatti orientali” (The world at home. Of still lifes and oriental dishes), a Korean recipe for Bo Ssam – slow-cooked roast pork – inspired by two Still Lifes by Cristoforo Munari (Reggio Emilia 1667 – Pisa 1720) from the collection of the Galleria Estense.


Sunday 19 SeptemberJames M. Bradburne, Director General of the Pinacoteca di Brera will present his recipe entitled “O sole mio” – consisting of fillet of sole, raw prawns and courgettes – which corresponds to his vision of light but nourishing cooking. He will speak about the relationship between art and food culture from an entrepreneurial perspective, with reference to the opening of a restaurant inside the Museum.
