    The Genie in the Bottle

    The Genie in the Bottle

    There’s a small piece of art in almost every fridge, even in yours. It’s from the Twenties, the time when an avant-garde artist (Fortunato Depero) and an entrepreneur (Davide Campari) proved that ads could be something more than shouted slogans and that even a tiny, mundane object can be the outstanding product of a revolutionary act of creation.

    Today’s guests are Nicoletta Boschiero and Valerio Varini.

    When the Pope's Corpse went on trial 

    When the Pope's Corpse went on trial 

    Here’s one question you didn’t expect to ever ask yourself: can the Pope take a dead Pope to court? The answer is yes, but be ready for another surprising turn, because the reason why the exhumed Pope’s corpse faces trial isn’t as outlandish as you may presume. In this episode of Italian Culture, we investigate the infamous Cadaver Trial, a fine example of how power, violence and subterfuge can taint even the most sacred office.

    Let there be Sandwich, and there was Sandwich

    Let there be Sandwich, and there was Sandwich

    What if I told you that the good, old sandwich has both a birthplace and a birthdate? What if this place was Italy and the year was 1926? In this episode of Italian Culture, we discover how a humble recipe changed the life of its inventor, a young woman who turned the entire restaurant business upside down. This is the story of the Mulassano caffé, the place where the sandwich was invented. Or was it?
