On the evening of September 25, good food and solidarity are intertwined in Rignano sull'Arno giving those present a truly special dinner, a unique experience in which the dishes will be enjoyed with all the senses except that of sight.
Supportive dinner in the dark Un-Throw, a limited number event with reservations required, was organized by Andrea Tavanti President of TummiVizi, an association for the promotion of food and wine culture that supports the philosophy of 'slow food', in collaboration with Danilo Musarella, President of ASD Blind Fighters, the amateur sports association for the blind born in 2020.
“A dinner that we have nicely called 'Un-Tummivedi', in the Tuscan style, also aimed at raising awareness among citizens on the issue of blindness. The surprise courses - ranging from the appetizer, to the first, to the second to conclude with dessert and coffee - will be prepared by Andrea Tavanti, a passionate chef, as well as president of TummiVizi and served by the boys of ASD Blind Fighters in a completely dark room ”, says Danilo Musarella.
“A playful experience but different from the usual, very strong, in which to savor a food it is necessary to rely not only on taste, but only on touch, smell and hearing. - tells Andrea Tavanti, by TummiVizi, - An event that, although funny, leads you to understand or at least to get closer to the world of the blind, to people who constantly live a reality in total absence of light. It is the second sensory dinner that we organize together with Danilo and the boys of his association and it has been very successful. Unfortunately, places are limited, we can accommodate about twenty people and therefore it is necessary to book.
Part of the proceeds from the sensory dinner will go to charity, in support of ASD Blind Fighters.
“We are a newly born sports association and our goal is to offer as many disciplines as possible for the blind, we started with the baseball team for the blind and now we are integrating with chess. This initiative of dinners in the dark is useful for introducing a different reality. At the end of the dinner it will be a pleasure for us to meet the participants, answer any questions and explain what we do ”, explains Danilo Musarella of ASD Blind Fighters.
The dinner will take place at 20.00 pm at the beautiful TummiVizi headquarters, inside the medieval tower of Pian dell'Isola, Via Roma, 63, on the edge of the capital of the municipality of Rignano sull'Arno; a building dating back to 1200.
