From Monte Bianco to Sicily’s Mount Etna, some of the highest peaks in Europe are found in Italian territory. There are two principle mountain ranges in Italy – the Alps, which run across the Northern regions; and the Apennines, stretching down the center of Italy and curving west to the island of Sicily. As we get into the depths of winter in Boston, the chef of La Scuola invites you to discover the hearty food heritage found in some of the mountainous regions of Italy.
As we end our mountain trek, we discover the national treasure of the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano.

Continuing on our series “Protecting Intangible Heritage” and as kick-off of the programs for the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, the Italian Cultural Institute invites you to “Sleeping Beauty, from Ariadne to Walt Disney (and back)”, a lecture by Prof. Monica Centanni with an introduction by Dr. Christopher Celenza, Dean of Georgetown College at Georgetown University and Professor of History and Classics.
Ancient myths have a vital energy that, during the course of history, are ‘re-loaded’, revealing new forms and triggering new meanings.
After centuries of oblivion, during the Renaissance, together with other stories from Greek and Latin mythology, the myth of Ariadne resurfaces and gives birth to a series of new images. In the figurative arts, Ariadne reappears as the seductive figure of the “Sleeping Venus”, marking the beginning of an iconographic series that continues until today, in the form of the Sleeping Beauty who awaits the salvific awakening by a Prince Charming.
In music, we can hear Ariadne’s lament in the first opera ever composed, by Claudio Monteverdi, or in its modern adaptation by Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, in which we can read, behind the lines, the influence of Friedrich Nietzsche’s own interpretation of Ariadne.
Bread is no exceptions to Italy’s variety of culinary traditions. Just like each region has their own traditional pasta shapes and dishes, each town and region have their own traditional bread too. It is the ingredients that thrive in the microclimate of each region that add the uniqueness to the bread like the local flour and water and even the techniques to create the dough. Bread making indeed is another artistry that can be rewarding and of course delicious. Is there anything better than tearing into a warm piece of Italian bread and submerging it in a good olive oil is knowing that you made the bread itself? Join us our resident baker and Chef of La Scuola as they demonstrate how to prepare Italian bread that can be easily recreated in your own kitchen. In this class guests will:
- Learn the Italian way to artisanal bread making.
- Explore the variations of breads made with different ingredients.
- Participate in a hands-on workshop in which guests will try their hand at preparing their own breads.
- Take home adapted recipes.
