The regulars of Cheese will already know. Cheese offers much more than the classic Taste Workshops, Dinner Dates, and conferences.
Here you’ll find a list of the films to be screened at Cheese.
Cheese on the Screen – Impero and Vittoria Multisala Movie Theaters in Bra
Two movie theaters in Bra will be screening for Cheese, in collaboration with CinemAmbiente, Life, and Slow Food. During the days of the event, you’ll find a rich selection of projections related to cheesemaking, pastoralism, food waste, climate change, and good agricultural practices.
Scrolling down, you can read the movies we selected.
Tickets for the screenings cost 4,50 euros and can be bought directly at the movie theater. The prices include a tasting to be served at the end of the movie.
No More Four Seasons – Musical by Luca Mercalli and Banda Osiris – Teatro Politeama Boglione in Bra (only in Italian)
As you can guess from its title, the musical refers to climate change, through literature and music. The idea for the show was brought up by Luca Mercalli and Banda Osiris, as part of the project A Seminar La Buona Pianta and was supported by Aboca. The Flemish painters and the Four Seasons of Antonio Vivaldi had already given us hints on the small glacial age between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which was a natural whim. What will we be leaving behind, as the generations of industrial revolution and global warming? What will the world look like if we ignore climate change?
This musical costs 5 euros and will be suited for Italian speakers only. Click here to book online.
