Il cibo, i modi di cucinarlo e consumarlo possono narrare un paese meglio di tante approfondite cronache storiche. E proprio oggi che in Italia l. a. cucina - con l. a. presentazione di pietanze sempre più ricercate e sfide gastronomiche all'ultimo piatto - è los angeles regina della programmazione televisiva, è importante ritrovarne los angeles memoria. Perché los angeles (buona) tavola è un fatto sociale e culturale, è appartenenza e ricordo, los angeles rappresentazione più intima della nostra identità, tanto che non è azzardato affermare che molti mutamenti del nostro paese possono essere letti attraverso il cibo e l. a. sua preparazione. Fornelli d¿Italia è un viaggio nel pace e nei tempi della nostra terra, alla scoperta di come e quanto sia cambiata l¿Italia da quel fatidico 1861 in cui siamo diventati nazione. Un viaggio raccontato da un punto di vista originalissimo, quello delle molte straordinarie cuoche che si sono avvicendate nelle cucine delle nostre case. Infatti, mentre l. a. gastronomia, colta e raffinata, è da sempre descritta da quegli stessi uomini che l. a. interpretano (i grandi chef che oggi spopolano come vere star), il quotidiano «far da mangiare», costruito silenziosamente e meticolosamente dalle donne, non ha mai avuto celebri cantori. Con occhi femminili, quelli delle padrone dei fornelli, Stefania Aphel Barzini riscrive l. a. storia d'Italia attraverso il cibo. E lo fa partendo da effective Ottocento con Marietta Sabatini, l. a. «fida Marietta», domestica e aiutante mai abbastanza ricordata e apprezzata di Pellegrino Artusi, e con l. a. cuoca-medico Amalia Moretti Foggia della Rovere (al secolo Petronilla); e, nei primi decenni del Novecento, con Lidia Morelli, che chiudeva mussolinianamente i suoi libri con l'esortazione: «Credere, obbedire, combattere». È poi los angeles volta del dopoguerra e degli anni del growth economico, ricchi di speranze e promesse, dai quali le donne (e le loro cucine), insieme al resto del paese, usciranno trasformate according to sempre, grazie all'invenzione di sofisticati e insostituibili elettrodomestici, oltre a tantissimi nuovi prodotti e utensili. according to arrivare al più recente fenomeno delle donne migranti, che a poco a poco entrano nelle nostre case e non solo portano in tavola gli ingredienti delle loro terre d¿origine, ma cambiano anche alcune nostre abitudini alimentari e modi di vivere. Concludendo, inevitabilmente, con gli ormai celeberrimi fornelli - talvolta forse troppo scintillanti e poco verosimili - delle chef mediatiche, le eredi dell'indimenticabile Ave Ninchi, e i menu virtuali della rete, dove spignattano inarrestabili le blogger. Una storia interessante e curiosa che, are available un gioco di scatole cinesi, ne racchiude molte altre, ricche di personaggi sorprendenti, di aneddoti, di ricette, di ingredienti, narrate anche grazie all'aiuto della pubblicità, dei movie, dei giornali e delle riviste dell¿epoca. Un «come eravamo, come siamo e come saremo», raccontato con grande ironia e autentica passione.

Che Sergio Zavoli raccontasse los angeles sua vita, attraversata da protagonista negli anni più felici della radio e della televisione, oltre che con le end up del suo talento di scrittore e poeta, lo si chiedeva da pace. Ed ecco un libro di sorprendente modernità che, in un gioco di continui rimandi temporali, tematici e psicologici, unisce alla tensione del racconto los angeles saldezza dello stile e alla versatilità della narrazione il puntiglio del documento, confermando, così, estro e rigore. Già il titolo rivela non solo un legame, ma addirittura una sorta di contiguità tra gli anni dell'adolescenza, della giovinezza e della maturità con il momento in cui l'autore si make a decision «a rastrellare dentro se stesso», consistent with dirla con le sue parole, «il ragazzo che io fui»: un rincorrersi, edito e inedito, di memoria e Storia, l¿alternarsi di questioni infrequent e quotidiane, di argomenti concreti e interiori, di tonalità elegiache, ironiche, dure, tutto segnato dai dilemmi di una contemporaneità splendida e tragica, che si misura con l'arcano privilegio di esservi nati e il grave obbligo di viverla. Ne è emerso un lungo capitolo della nostra vita, ricostruito e indagato attraverso «una ricchezza ispirata dall'immaginazione autenticata dalla realtà», così si espresse Carlo Bo, aggiungendo: «È evidente - in tanta parte di ciò che questo "maestro di scenari e interrogazioni" scrive, mostra e cube - il disegno di tenere dentro il quadrato della lucentezza, anche espressiva e stilistica, los angeles forza e gli urti della coscienza, fino a toccare una ancor più eloquente, civile e morale, eticità». Perché rimanga, di stagioni e percorsi comuni, quella specie di controcanto che è l'irripetibile esistenza di ogni uomo: minima, nascosta, e tuttavia frammento e cifra della stessa umanità che ha fatto, fa e a long wayà los angeles Storia. È los angeles «lezione» che Zavoli, raccontando se stesso, offre simbolicamente a un bambino, un tenero nipote in cui intravede una sorta di continuità non solo affettiva. È un libro giovane, con mitezze e intransigenze, dolcezze e dolori, disincanti e speranze, che coinvolge molte età; e si fa leggere - come disse Calvino dei libri autenticamente inusuali - «tutto d'un fiato, e poi daccapo» e ciò perché, scriveva Bo, «Zavoli inclina a dar voce alla sua maggiore speculazione, diciamo natural alla sua intelligenza del mondo, che da anni va scrutando e interpellando in tutte le direzioni». Il ragazzo che io fui, ci cube l'autore, «è in fondo il tentativo di capire ciò che l. a. memoria, dalla più lontana alla più incombente, può lasciare a un bambino che pare avviato, come fu in keeping with me alla sua età, a diventare scriventista, una parola salvata a lungo, in silenzio, dall'immaginazione innocente di mia madre».
