The newly revamped Caffé Fernanda pays homage to Pinacoteca di Brera, one of Milan’s art galleries that is home to some of the leading collections of Italian paintings around the world.
The art pieces displayed in the café elevate its design, engaging and inspiring the patrons, making their café visit feel like a gallery experience.
The grandeur of the space pays tribute to the neoclassical architecture, coupled with the post war 1950’s renovation of the space, and juxtaposed with the contemporary approach to art curation it becomes a space that seduces through texture & design.
I appreciate design that takes into account not only the history of the space but also the value and preservation of that history in its reconstruction.
I cannot help but pause for such beauty, and in silence I take a bow. -tM
