The Resistance Baking


Located in Castel Cerreto, a rural area between Milan and Bergamo, lies Tilde: an interdisciplinary space that includes bread making, residencies and exhibitions. Together with husband Simone Conti, Marisol Malatesta runs the bakery, using only natural fermentation and local grains.

Besides baking, Marisol draws, paints and explores the relationship between art and bread making through sculptures. She teaches at the University of Bournemouth, whereby she supports her students to get acquainted with dough, fermentation processes and baking temperatures.
