nuovo cinema paradiso/ New Paradise Cinema

I made this cake in honour of Tornatore’s “Nuovo Cinema Paradiso” and his co-star Totò Cascio who played the little boy’s role and now lives in my neighbour village (he is 36 now).

Actually, I was commissioned to do it by the italian Cake Design Magazine and I really wish that this cake could help to remember a part of our parent’s story and life.

I was particularly impressed by the giant anchors on the shore… meaning “to be anchored” which were referring to one’s boundage to the own native land and Alfredo (the projectionist) saying to the young man “Go, go away! This is a cursed land!” These words helped the young man to go away to Rome where he later became a famous director.
