Sitting at the table is an internal conflict between instinct and culture.

What is the ideal number of guests for a successful dinner party? Should you bring the host flowers? How should the seating plan be arranged? Roberta Schira uses modern examples to interpret the 16th-century etiquette guide,  Il Galateo. The dinner table encourages sharing, intimacy, and relaxation, making it the perfect place to discover the inner essence of others. What comes to light at the table while sharing a meal is the best way to assess a new relationship and discover if he or she is really ‘the one’.
