Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana, the author of a memorable lecture a while ago in the Auditorium hall, what with the tribute to Stefano Bonilli, the World Fair, the Refettorio project (photo credits by Brambilla/Serrani). Translation by Slawka G. Scarso
Monday in the main cathedral of Identità Golose is the real thing, the holy mass with all the songs. There’s no longer the racing pulse of the first day, but the adrenalin only differs in taste. Besides, today’s playlist includes tracks that fill the dance floor, one after the other. Before that, however, an almost crepuscular Paolo Marchi gives a speech that is almost a second opening talk and he is the first of many who will later pay a tribute to Stefano Bonilli, founder of Gambero Rosso, a man that did a lot for Italian gastronomy, and passed away six months ago.

Finally, the end arrives with Noi di sala, the association that aims at giving value to the other professions in the restaurant industry, and with Alma. A small pièce put into the hands of Marco Giallini transforms the auditorium in a real theatre. This was the only thing missing from IG. No longer so.
