Il dolce. Il piacere del gusto nella storia

Il Dolce

This book tells the story of how sweetness has assumed a strongly symbolic meaning through the centuries.  A long trajectory, from tasting fruit to discovering honey and beekeeping, from the mythical manna and cane sugar (with the sour and terrible slavery involved in its trade) to sugar beets and, more recently, the new chemical and natural frontiers of sweetness.


A living, successful saga in which industry rules, market extortion, medical fears and chemical interventions have all failed to corrode the fascination and the meaning of words such as “sweet” and “sweetness”.

Terms that will continue to express the pleasure of an emotion and the intense power of a feeling for a long way to come. If every symbol is born out of strong links with direct and collective experiences, then the awareness of sweetness finds no cultural obstacles to its loading with metaphorical meanings that are universally shared.

Thus sweet is any satisfactory sensation that brings pleasure and somehow provides gratification. Sweet are caresses, sweet is a dream, sweet is a person.
