Surely, we are not cinematographic experts but, from our point of view, the winning reward goes to a BBC report which was broadcasted in April 1957 in the UK and called "The spaghetti-tree". It was a brief broadcast that lasted only three minutes on 1 April, the so called "Fools' Day". It showed purposely a family in southern Switzerland, harvesting spaghetti from a family "spaghetti tree".
This short broadcasting report appeared originally from the idea of Albert Kuntz, the managing director of the Swiss Tourism Office in London. The production was assured by Charles de Jaeger (1911-2000) from the BBC channel. The actors, who, unfortunately, have all already past away in the present day, were ordinary employees of the Lugano Tourist Office. The restaurant Taddei, shown at 1m55sec, has been long gone and has become today the Historical Archive of Città di Lugano, which is worth visiting.
