FOOD ON THE GO
The Italian diaspora defined a strong food influence over the American continent. This documentary collects the relationship between the Italian origins and the American Taste.



Gastronomic culture is the result of the movement of man looking for new forms of food. The journey of Italian food, along with large migration processes to America, prove it. Almost one hundred years after, following the tracks of il cibo and its journey to New York and Buenos Aires, we witness the foundation of a new tradition of Italian food in exile. What bond does it preserve with the original country? Can we talk about Italian food outside of Italy?
