In Rome, it’s all about Korea’s table
The Milan Expo kicks off its six-month run on May 1 and the Korean pavilion is expected to be about Korean food. The exhibition in Rome also sheds light on the culture of Korean dining. About 50 pieces from the National Folk Museum’s collection are being shown. More than 30 contemporary art pieces are also exhibited. The photographs, furniture and craft works are all inspired by Korean dining.
“We hope visitors to Rome will get to experience the past and the present of the culture of Korean dining,” Choi Sun-kwon, a curator at the museum, said.
