The Guests of the Fourth Edition of the Andaras Traveling Film Festival
Chef Rubio (Gabriele Rubini)
A chef, conductor and author of numerous television broadcasts and documentaries, explorer, traveler and anti-Zionist activist for the liberation of Palestine.
Being an unconventional chef, Rubio thinks that the culinary art is only a means, while the starting point and the finishing point are always the people, their experience, their history, the territory. Eclectic and versatile, he stands out for his unique approach and his distinctive language of democratic cuisine and social commitment. Rubio cultivates numerous passions in addition to TV and cooking: he is a photographer, director, writer and screenwriter.

The Safir Nou project presents the new album “Liminal” in concert at Andaras. “Liminal” tells the journey of migration, expressed in terms of suspension, expectation, hope, the search for another condition, a moment between the “no more” and the “not yet”. The instrumental compositions and moments of improvisation remind of Mediterranean, Saharan and Northern European landscapes.

And he never stops.
She is passionate about food and wine, expression of the traditions, culture and pedoclimatic conditions of a specific territory that has to be protected and safeguarded. She is a tireless traveller and she is in love with Sardinia, a land full of charm and mystery.
She is the team leader of the Slow Food Travel project, which promotes sustainable tourism, that has to be lived slowly. It has to stimulate the knowledge of the less famous destinations’ places, landscapes, aromas and flavours, through sensory paths that make the traveller experience the local communities which respect sustainable practices in agriculture and the promotion of good, clean and fair food.
She collaborates on the Slow Food Guide to Taverns of Italy, taking care of the restaurant reviews and the master wine taster.
