Eating Under Fire: Food in WWII Britain and Italy
14 November, 2019, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Have you got an Italian relative or a person you know who was living in Italy during WWII? How could they survive? What were they eating? Do you want to know what the situation was like here in Britain and make a comparison? Join us for this evening event where you will be able to see the types of bread, coffee, tea and other food available in Italy and Britain during WWII. Experts will introduce you to the food situation in both countries. In the second part of the event, a performance will follow where readings of diaries and memoirs of people living in Italy and Britain during WWII will give you an idea of how people were feeling about food, of their love for coffee/tea, and of their activities around wartime food control. As a memento, copies of British and Italian wartime recipes will be made available together with information cards to explore the topic more.
