With reference to examples taken from different types of art – sculpture, mosaic, painting, miniature – and from the literary sources, this study contextualizes some aspects connected to the alimentation, from the Roman world to the Middle Ages. Particularly, through the analysis of a range of monuments (especially from the north-eastern region of the Italian peninsula, for the Roman part), the authors try to retrace the relation between man and food, intended as a unitary cycle, from the hunting and the preparation of food to its consumption on the table. From this it comes to light that its representation rarely is an end in itself, whereas it refers to more meaningful contents.
