Alternating between fantasy and reality, light tones and more serious themes, A tavola con Maradona is a loving tribute to the Argentinean champion: at times it describes the dishes he loved, at other times the recipes (by famous chefs and pastry chefs) become metaphors for the most extraordinary actions of the pibe de oro and his brilliant personality. The authors Fabrizio Mangoni and Oscar Nicolaus portray in the background Diego’s two homelands, Naples and Buenos Aires, with their flavors and gastronomic specialties; two magical cities, melancholic and passionate, like the many lives of Diego Armando Maradona.

Fabrizio Mangoni, architect and urban planner, is the author and host of numerous television programs, documentaries and shows on the history of food.
Oscar Nicolaus, psychotherapist, author and university professor, is passionate about food and soccer.
