From May 25‒28, 2016, the Centre Phi held a series of socio-culinary and multidisciplinary events focused on the theme of food wastage and featuring a variety of innovative local and international personalities, including Italian chef and activist Massimo Bottura. At the heart of this initiative was a preview screening of Theater of Life, a documentary by Peter Svatek—spatialized across six different screens—and making use of contrasting juxtapositions to relate the “extraordinary encounter between the two contradictory worlds” of haute cuisine and hunger. The documentary’s backdrop was the Universal Exposition that took place in Milan in 2015 on the topic of food.
