Profumo di basilico

Profumo di basilico

Basil, with its fragrance and its taste, is the so-lar plant par excellence, symbol of regeneration and rebirth. In this short paper, this divine plant will be described in all its shapes and forms: from the kitchen use to medicine, from mythology to popular traditions.

A basil-scented journey, between philosophy and Mediterranean recipes, that brings life to an exceptional marriage of flavours and knowledge. In this journey, the symbolic value of food and the thought that goes with it enhance its taste and qualities.
