With Italian Pastry Chef
Valerio Barralis
 
SEE YOU ON
Thursday, April 29 &  Friday, April 30, 2021

Learn to make a delicious and refined Tiramisù-inspired original tart imagined especially for ICC and this workshop. Be guided in the practices of Italian and French high patisserie, taught by master pastry chef Valerio Barralis whose credo rests in being able to guide students knowledgeably and patiently.

Open to all levels: whether you are a master pastry chef or a total novice attracted to lovely desserts, this workshop is for you. You can choose to just listen, take in Valerio's techniques, anecdotes, and secrets, and make the tart later, or you can follow along step-by-step in your kitchen.

A list of ingredients and a detailed recipe, as well as recordings of the two-day workshop will be shared with all participants.

This event is organized by the Italian Cultural Center, San Diego.

Viaggio Metafisico in Garfagnana
(in Italian language)

Dove i sogni incontrano la realtá
Organizzato da EMME Geographers of Emotions


VEDIAMOCI
Giovedí 13, Venerdí 20, Giovedí 27 Maggio 2021
8:00 am PST / 11:00 am EST
Durata totale: 10 ore

 

L’intero progetto THE RIVER OF LIFE è un viaggio metafisico in Garfagnana: dove i sogni incontrano la realtà! Il Fiume della Vita è il Fiume Serchio e la Valle dell’Esistenza è questa meravigliosa valle, la Garfagnana appunto, adagiata tra gli Appennini e le Alpi Apuane.

I viaggiatori, dopo aver preparato una valigia speciale, scopriranno il loro compagno di viaggio e nell’avvicinarsi al punto di partenza dell’avventura (Terra, L’Orrido di Botri), faranno giochi e Q&A sulla Garfagnana. Una volta a destinazione, tra le voragini del Canyon della Genesi, immagineranno di essere alle origini del mondo per poi attraversare, lanciandosi in appassionanti sfide tematiche le altre tappe del viaggio metafisico – Radici, Emozioni, Vita, Filosofia e Libertà.

Al termine del viaggio, attorno ad un fuoco, ogni team – composto da due viaggiatori e dai rispettivi animali-guida – racconterà la propria esperienza e si creerà un clima di grande empatia e ascolto.

Il viaggio metafisico in Garfagnana ti aiuterà a sviluppare il senso di appartenenza all’unico genere che conosciamo: quello degli esseri viventi.

I tuoi rapporti con la Madre Terra diventeranno ancora più profondi così come intensificherai le connessioni emotive con te stesso e con le persone che, come te, stanno esplorando il mondo da questa innovativa prospettiva scoprendo orizzonti inaspettati, facendosi avvolgere dal senso di meraviglia e gioia che pervade il nostro spirito quando ci sentiamo in armonia con quello che ci circonda.

Non mancheranno i momenti di introspezione e riflessione, momenti in cui affronterai le tue paure o cercherai di non perdere i tuoi sogni. Sarà un viaggio profondo ma non pesante, leggero ma non superficiale.

Sarà un viaggio unico, esclusivo, che ti farà scoprire nuovi orizzonti a portata di umano e di mano e che, ne siamo certi, ti farà decidere di andare in Garfagnana fisicamente, non appena ciò sarà possibile!

La tua guida metafisica per questo viaggio sarà Marco Bertagni, che dividerà con te e con il gruppo il grande amore che prova per queste terre e vi presenterà il suo amico Antonio, l’Uomo del Fiume!

  Questo evento é organizzato da EMME Geographers of Emotions.
