Sushi like you have never seen it. The origins, variants, and the millennial and surprising history of one of the most beloved and tasty foods of all time are on display with life-size reproductions, virtual chefs, and ukiyo-e, the characteristic artistic prints on paper.
Included in the list of intangible world heritage in 2013 by UNESCO, the Japanese cuisine, Washoku, identifies refined, healthy, and aesthetically impeccable Sushi as its most representative element.
Born between south-east Asia and southern China, Sushi arrived in Japan about a thousand years ago. Thanks to the abundance of raw materials to which new ideas and knowledge are applied, and the innate desire to experience new dishes and combinations of the Japanese people, it radically changed.
How not to think, in fact, of the nigirizushi, a very successful and succulent creation established about two hundred years ago in Edo, the ancient Tokyo?
Sushi is known and appreciated worldwide, but not all variants and features are known to its lovers. I love Sushi was, therefore, designed to fill this gap and guide you to the discovery of Sushi and its evolution and transformation in Japanese territory. Japan's heterogeneous physical, cultural, and social geography has led to a profound modification of Sushi to its unmistakable shape over time.
Furthermore, the exhibition invites you to reflect on contemporary food culture and sushi prospects.
Designed for all palates, I love Sushi also offers the virtual experience of an authentic Japanese sushi shop.
