A-typical faces in a-typical places / with Crescenzo Morlando

Oreste Monaco, Italian photographer and art director, will capture stories of Italian people settled in Italian places.

An intrusion into A-typical places, of A-typical people.

Crescenzo Morlando, chef, class of 1993.

His passion for cooking took him from Campania to Mexico, then to France and Spain. He currently works as executive chef at the CondĂ© Nast brand’s School of Italian Cuisine and through his dishes loves to tell about Italian tradition and his travel memories.

Crescenzo with his cooking brings us back to the flavors of home, but more than the flavors, to the feelings of home. Food is much more than a series of ingredients meticulously prepared together to bring flavors to life: it is an act of love.

“The sacredness of food”, is what we brought to the stage inside this abandoned church in the province of Naples, Crescenzo’s hometown. The altar becomes a kitchen, the food, though raw brings back life to the stone, which, dusty for so long, had lost its warmth. No fire is seen, we see nothing for cooking outside of a knife, a knife custom-made for Crescenzo by a craftsman. And although there is no fire, we can almost feel the heat; the soul is flame, it is heat, it is life, like food.
