Product Description

This white and purple Chef's Apron was designed to accompany the exhibition The Edible Monument: The Art of Food for Festivals on view at the Detroit Institute of Arts from Friday, December 16, 2016 through Sunday, April 16, 2017.

Featuring a large reproduction of Giacomo-Maria Giovanni's etching of a monumental table sculpture made from sugar. Lavish civic feasts in late seventeenth-century Bologna celebrated the wealth of the city and creative genius of its leaders.  This table sculpture was displayed at a banquet for sixty-fours eminent persons in the Palazzo Vizzani.  Given by Senator Francesco Ratta to mark the end of his term as gonfaloniere, the round table featured gilt and sugar paste table pieces, river gods, fine candies, and mounds of rare fruit, all displaying the natural resources of the region. The resting warrior and heraldic devices at the very top--winged griffins and a lion--were borrowed from the Ratta family's coat of arms.
