Working Hunger: Stories of Working Class Gastronomy


Theme: Food Culture
Tag: PiedmontItalyFood and the city

Working Hunger tells the story of the industrial development in Piedmont through its food: that moment of the day when thousands of workers all put down their tools together to eat their packed lunches. An emblematic symbol of Piedmontese society, which the crisis of the 1990s and the progressive closure of more and more factories has relegated to memory. The food of the working class here enjoys the cultural dignity it deserves. The exhibition is curated by a team of researchers from UNISG, with images recovered from the most important national archives, along with 12 video interviews with workers recounting their experiences.

Exhibition brought to you by:
Piedmont Regional Council
The University of Gastronomic Sciences
Kòres Cultual Association
