In via Romagnosi, 3, in Milan, the sophisticated and wide spaces that for more than fifty years have been home to the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation, very close to the Teatro La Scala, now it is possible to enjoy meals prepared by the best chefs in the world. ‘Identità Golose Milano International Gastronomy and Culinary Hub‘ is an event location with an eclectic attitude, with a kitchen-lab, a wide hall and a fascinating outdoor space devoted to dining, and other areas for teaching.
The idea is to serve best of the Italian cuisine, with some incursion from abroad, in a city that welcomes 5 million tourists per year attracted by fashion, design, art, and a high concentration of many starred restaurants.
In this multifaceted 700 square meters space, food is both as an object of study, with conferences and cooking shows in the conference room, and a flavorful experience in the restaurant space. Guests are welcomed into a metropolitan and contemporary atmosphere with a transparent outdoor hall that overlooks a lovely courtyard embraced by a centennial wisteria. The restaurant will be open for lunch – Monday to Friday – with menus signed by resident chef Alessandro Rinaldi and the coordination of Andrea Ribaldone, the same team that on Mondays and Tuesdays evenings will develop menus dedicated to seasonal themes (the first one is with the mushroom and truffle). While from Wednesday to Saturday the evening menus will be designed by renowned Italian and foreign chefs. The first names on the calendar are: Italian Moreno Cedroni from ‘Madonnina del Pescatore’ in Senigallia – the inventor of Italian-style sushi -, Spanish Paco Roncero from ‘Teraza del Casino’ in Madrid, Slovenian Ana Ros (the World’s Best Woman Chef in 2017), Peppe Guida, Alfio Ghezzi, Anthony Genovese, Ciro Scamardella, Alessandro Pipero, Marco Sacco, Russian brothers Ivan and Sergey Berezutskiy from the Twins Garden in Moscow, and Massimo Bottura (World’s Best Chef 2018).
