Curtain up on the 61st
International Film Festival in Venice, and back in the spotlight
once again is the gastronomic fare of the Treviso Marches, promoted
by the Province of Treviso and the Marches association of restaurateurs,
with the nascent Association of young Treviso chefs, and coordinated
by Carry On of Conegliano. Long associated with the world of cinema,
Treviso food and wine will again be at Venice, as it was at Cannes,
Berlin, New York and Los Angeles.
Gracing the wine-bar on the terrace of the Excelsior hotel, within the “cinema
incontri” area —organized by Cinecittà Holding to present
the activities and projects of the Cinecittà Group (Istituto Luce, Cineplex,
Aip) — will be Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene, fragrant Bibanesi
breadsticks, and eaux-de-vie from the Bonaventura Maschio di Gaiarine distillery.
Every evening between 5.00 and 7.00, directors, VIPs and actors mingling on the
terrace will drink each others health with a Bellini di Cannella as a prelude
to the “Incontri del gusto” when they can sample products of the
Treviso Marches: De Stefani cold cuts, Trevisan Bruno Bassotto’s record-breaking
sausage (in the Guinness Book), cheeses from the Latteria Perenzin di Bagnolo,
and casatella made by the Casatella Trevigiana cooperative. All of which accompanied
by Prosecco from the Adami, Borgo Antico and Sorelle Bronca wineries, and background
music from Alberto Grollo.
And over at Villa Zavagli on the Marconi seafront,
for the “Authors
Days” section, these same products offered to guests of the festival
will be on the tables of the VIP wine-bar and eatery, run by restaurateur
Miron di Nervesa della Battaglia.
