indovina chi viene a cena

While politicians claim that citizenship law is the first thing they’d change if elected in next year’s general election, the good thing is that people in Italy are actually doing something. One of the nicest things I had the chance to witness recently is the fab Indovina Chi Viene A Cena, presented in Prato by ALP – Associazione Libert√† √® Partecipazione. During the launch event last June 8th – in which this talented bunch of people managed to give a huge street party in Pizza Sant’Agostino, located at the heart of Prato’s historical centre – Indovina Chi Viene A Cena was presented as a funny dinner exchange programme between foreign and Italian families. In fact, those who apply to take part will get a home dinner invitation from a family of foreign nationality or culture living in Prato: both families will get the chance of getting to know each other over a delicious home cooked dinner and of course they will be able to return the favour. Prato isn’t the first town to join: the event was launched in Northern Italy and it is now spreading all over the country. What else than food could play a main role in the processes of social integration in Italy? Enjoy the pics of the huge street party, hopefully we’ll get the chance of reporting on the lovely home dinners as well.
