Cycle of seminars 2010: Imaginary of Banquet

The ritual of the table, the sweet or savoury solicitations create a special moment when physical and mental pleasures enhance each other.

Eating is a cultural practice that acknowledges the power of the food to join the dispersed spiritual strength, it is a ceremony which introduces to the sacred.

Banquet as imago mundi and the ritual of the table as personal Weltanschauung are the main elements of these meetings
