Living Divani takes part in the restyling of Camparino in Galleria, the place in Piazza Duomo where the aperitif was born and which still retains the Art Nouveau details, just brought to a new light by the restructuring intervention signed by Lissoni Associati.
At the base of the project made by the Lissoni Associati Studio is the idea that being a historic place in Milan does not mean closing in on itself and in its own tradition, but finding an identity rooted in time that looks to the future. "In this project we wanted to be as silent as possible, trying to be honest and sincere with the historical part of this place. Our job as architects was to give a little touch of modernity, but it was an interpretation. "Like when a musical score is played by someone else. I imagined the contrast between a natural, classic and modern elegance, in a wonderful cross between Camparino in the Galleria, our project and Davide Oldani's cuisine. For me, Camparino it is not only the place of the aperitif but the place where things happen, from morning to night.
It is not simply a bar... it is simply the Camparino", explains architect Piero Lissoni. The most important intervention is the one of Sala Spiritello, the first floor, overlooking the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which sees a large central furniture covered with mirrors that serve as a counter to prepare and serve the cocktail, surrounded by from the elegant Nina stools, by the Spanish designer David Lopez Quincoces, in the high version, covered in rust-colored velvet.
