Foodmetti: food and drawings come together at Lucca Comics and Games 2022


Among the many activities present during the days of Lucca Comics and Games 2022 there is also a project that explores the connections between comics and food and wine: Foodmetti Artisti delle Tavole. Let's find out what it is!


Foodmetti Table Artists

Everything has been made possible thanks to the involvement of personalities who are friends of the creators such as C.B. Cebulski, editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics and passionate about cooking, the superstar of comics Mirka Andolfo, authors such as Lorenzo De Felici and Sualzo, but also publishing houses and important realities of the food and wine world such as Star Comics, Panini, Cong, Nuages, Menabrea Beer, Strip And Spirit and Baladin, with its founder Teo Musso.

The debut of the project

On the occasion of Lucca Comics and Games 2022, Foodmetti will make its debut in the wonderful rooms of the Atelier Ricci (Via Burlamacchi, 32), a location where it will be possible know and buy the products related to the project. But not only that, there are also numerous panels with design professionals of the caliber of Mirka Andolfo, Giuseppe Camuncoli, C.B. Cebulski, Lorenzo De Felici, Sualzo, and names that are part of the food and wine excellences such as Cristiano Tomei, Carlo Spinelli, Teo Musso, Marco Macelloni, Tommaso Blandi and many others.


Foodmetti's products

But who thinks of Spider-Man? Chef Cristiano Tomei also paid homage to him, presenting the Spider Pizza, a classic of Italian cuisine revisited in a comics key complete with mozzarella that creates the shape of SpiderMan's web. All these products boast the presence of labels on official Marvel concession, and were made by Giuseppe Camuncoli.

Spàisi! and more

Among the food & beverage proposals, the spicy line of saldaPress will also be present at Lucca Comics and Games. This proposal sees the public offer a series of six extra virgin olive oils from the Frantoio di Massarosa flavored with chillies from the Carmazzi farm. And then again a special wine to be tasted. Among the peculiarities of this line we find the labels created by Mirka Andolfo, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Lorenzo De Felici, Daniel Warren Johnson, Ryan Ottley and Dan Panosian. For further details, please refer to our dedicated article.

If you want to combine spicy with some spirits, here is Strip and Spirit with a line dedicated to Corto Maltese. So get ready for Rum Marinero (aged for 3 years), Rum Isla Escondida (aged for 7 years) and Vodka Oyster Raspoutine. Still on the subject of drinks, the independent Baladin brewery by Teo Musso participates in Foodmetti with its National Beer and Paprika Tonic. The first is a 100% Italian craft beer while the second is a special version of the Baladin line dedicated to tonic water, created in collaboration with Star Comics and the author Mirka Andolfo.
