About the event

She travels in time and the space around her transforms. Between handfuls of flour, Rosa relives some of the most significant moments of her life, accompanied by music, objects, and people from that time. She goes through the times of the Second World War and those of a child in the house of rich people. A moment later she is a mature woman in the countryside, then a young lover, and finally, she becomes the grandmother, Nonna Rosa. All this while making fettuccine.

The seed for Stories of Eggs and Flour, an original solo show by and with Gaia Mencagli, was planted in 2018 during a storytelling project, and back then it was called Nonna Rosa. When the world shut down in the spring of 2020 and we were all forced into isolation, Rosa started to make pasta again, again, and again until she found her way to an audience.
