Two bikers with a camera to the discovery of Italy and themselves

Everyone in Milan knows Pasticceria Cucchi. Cucchi represents a benchmark of Milanese patisserie and one of the best and most ancient pastry shops in Milan both for those who always lived here and for those who just arrived in town. Cucchi was for decades a part of the community and was always interested in make its patisserie art with other form of visual art, maybe less institutional than others but always interesting. The most recent of these meetings is the exhibit “If I did it”, that will last from 7th November to 4th December.

Two Milanese friends, Annita and Monica, a pair of bikes and one thousand kilometers of the Via Francigena to go, in a path that unwinds through panoramas and cities, from Aosta to Rome. The Via Francigena is an ancient medieval route that pilgrims used to got to Rome. The original path is incredibly long: it goes from Canterbury, England, to Puglia, going over the Alps and descending from Aosta Valley.

To demonstrate that even a great feat can be accomplished with sheer force of will, Annita and Monica decided to take a long journey on their bikes without programming destination and schedules but with the only aim to go freely towards their final destination. With only a light luggage, the two women went discovering the ancient and hidden Italy, documenting their experience with a series of beautiful photographs that will be exposed in the Pasticceria Cucchi.

For the opening of the exhibit, there will be the intervention of photographer Monica Nanetti and a tasting of cacc’e mmitte wines (cacc’e mmitte means “put in and take back” in Pugliese dialect) from the Azienda Agraria Paolo Petrilli of Lucera.
