The interview – whose title is “For Pope Francis a meal succeeds when it is shared” – is edited by the journalist Alice Tixier.

“Enjoy your meal!” These are the words with which Pope Francis greets the worshippers in his speeches. Few knows the deeper meaning: before becoming Pope, he graduated in Food Chemistry and inherited the passion for food from his mother, grandmother and relatives who owned a restaurant in Piedmont, Italy. In this new book you’ll discover the milestones of the Pope’s life and the dishes related to this main events: you can replicate them at home following the original recipes in the book. A volume that gives a new perspective on the beloved, charismatic figure of Pope Francis.

“Eating with Pope Francis”, by Roberto Alborghetti, published in Italy by Mondadori, has just been released in Spain, where – as it is happening in Italy and other European Countries – it is receiving an impressive media coverage. “En la mesa con Francisco” is the title of the Spanish edition of the volume, published by Editorial Larousse. Daily newspapers, magazines, weekly magazines and online newspapers are giving ample space to the Pope Francisco recounted in his relationship with food and all today the food represents (food waste included).

ABOUT “TIME FOR BOOKS” IN MILAN
“Tempo di Libri’ (Time for Books) is the name of the new book fair that will take place in Milan from April 19-23, 2017. The fair has been organised at the Milan Rho trade fair centre after the long-established Turin book fair lost the confidence of Italian publishers earlier this year. The programme is to be overseen by Chiara Valerio, Pierdomenico Baccalario and Giovanni Peresson with oversight from a scientific committee responsible for drawing up the guidelines for the general content of the event. The logo is of a book illuminated by the sun that doubles as a sun dial.
The new fair aims to promote a new “interactive” way of approaching books and reading, organisers said. “There will be the much-loved authors but we would like the public to take part,” said Renata Gorgani, president of the new Fabbrica del Libro in Milan. “We would like the fair to be a huge meeting place where non-readers also come,” she added. “I think it will be useful for Turin too that the fair is being held here,”
