Pasta: An Historical Tour Around the Table

18 July 2013 - 10 September 2013


The origins of pasta are clouded in myths and fantasy. This exhibition looks at evidence for the beginnings of pasta and traces its development through the centuries. Once viewed as a dish eaten by the poor of Southern Italy, and a subject of parody in Commedia dell’arte, pasta now is viewed as a profound expression of the Italian culture. Join us for a glimpse into pasta through the ages.
