"December 1929. Christmas is approaching in the lively Milan, where the work of covering the Navigli began, with great enthusiasm of the Futurists who want to asphalt the waterways to be able to make you fly over the bolides of the new world. An elegant and busy lady rushes into the doorway of the beautiful building on Via Monte Napoleone, greeted by the caretaker who smiles, touches her cap and watches her quickly cross the polished marble lobby. "

While the husbands were at the front, the Italians discovered they were able to do the same things that men did and now a new bourgeois class is looking for a way of life similar to that of the elites considered to be superior up to that time. It is a great opportunity, in Delia's mind, to put her knowledge at the service of those who are willing to listen. All starting from the theme considered feminine par excellence: the kitchen, but a kitchen that can become a window open to the world.
A Tasting Committee prestigious will evaluate the proposed food products, all Made in Italy, as a kind of consumer association ante litteram. Intellectuals who deal with food? Sure. And soon they'll be playing at Delia's door: professors, industrialists, intellectuals, journalists. "
