    The Blank involves the students of the Scuola Alberghiera of Clusone in an itinerary to discover the languages through which the artistic creativity and research take shape.
    From the dialogue with the artist Diego Marcon and its work, the young cooks take some inspiration to design a menu to cook in a special dinner open to the public.
