Daniele is four years old. In an autumnal morning his mother takes him to the station and entrusts him to a boy with a red neckerchief. War is over and partisans have organized some “mutual aid” networks for orphans and needy children. Daniele is given to a peasant family of Reggio Emilia. His mother promises him she’ll be soon back but seven years will pass before his coming back home.
“The taste of bread” recalls the daydreams of the distant mother, the conflicting love for the adoptive family, the rough sweetness of country life.
