In-Person at MODA

Join us at MODA as we take a tour of Italy by way of its most famous dish: pasta! On this guided tour, we will be exploring the symbolism, cultural impact, and traditions of pasta through our new exhibition, Al Dente: The Design of Pasta.

As pasta became a staple of Italian cuisine, different regional and cultural influences transformed it into unique shapes and flavors. Throughout this staff-led tour, we will be exploring how different regions and groups developed their own methods of making pasta, how each shape serves a different purpose, and how every variation is as unique as the hands that created it! 


About Al Dente: The Design of Pasta

MODA's new exhibition, Al Dente: The Design of Pasta, explores the many ways in which the processes of making, cooking, and eating pasta serve as acts of design. It showcases an array of pasta shapes — each created to maximize flavor, texture, and nutritional value — and the tools used to make them. Also addressed are the impacts of industrialization on pasta design, pasta’s promotion to consumers through graphic arts, the future of pasta in our era of 3D and 4D printing, and contemporary efforts to create new pasta shapes.
