International Day of People with Disability: Chef Antonio’s Recipes for Revolution

3 December
Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$12 / $10

Nestled in Italy’s Piedmont region is the Albergo Etico and its attached restaurant, the Tacabanda. Both are run by chef-on-a-mission Antonio de Benedetto, who transforms the lives of young people living with Down syndrome by providing not just practical skills and employment, but also a second home and family in which to belong.  

Chef Antonio’s Recipes for Revolution follows de Benetto and protégés Mirko Piras, Jessica Berta and others as they share in laughter and love, drama and dreams, and the toil of top-notch customer service. Their tiny kitchen is the beating heart of a revolutionary restaurant and hotel like no other.  

Chef Antonio’s Recipes for Revolution is a cinematic invitation to experience the behind-the-scenes story of this unique restaurant and hotel as its staff embark on a journey to take their vision to the wider world, while forever changing their lives in the process.
