Day 1 – Tuesday April 8th

Some relevant milanesi offer tips for what visitors absolutely must do with their days at Salone del Mobile 2014.


1. Pasticceria Supino
via Cesare da Sesto, 1

Pasticceria Supino is perfect for a snack. If you love little cream horns, well that is the place to go, no choice. It is a laboratory, and it is not possible to seat there, hence you’d better call for reserving cream horns, but believe me you cannot be dissatisfied. No formalism, all quality: if you want to sit, take your treats and go to the benches at the Darsena, not very far.

2. Porta Nuova
piazza Gae Aulenti

Given that my atelier projected the Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) residential towers, I am particularly attached to the new Porta Nuova district. I
think this is the first place showing everyone, citizens and tourists, that Milan has been changing lately. Before that moment, Milan had experienced a silent evolution, into its courts and buildings: Porta Nuova is the real detector of the transformation of Milan.
Stefano Boeri

3. Mercato di Sant’Agostino
piazza Sant’Agostino

Born as a simple district hangout, the market of Viale Papiniano is now one of the most famous in Milan: stroll around the stands and get a different emotion every time. Products are different every time. Namely, the stands dedicated to food in Piazza Sant’Agostino are particularly interesting, and offer fresh producets: from fruit to vegetables and cheeses, from cold cuts to fish and meat. The mood is fun and chaotic as well; the market is populated by local inhabitants, but also by curious tourists. It’s worth a visit, everything you should be looking for, especially with good weather.

4. Nonostante Marras
via Cola di Rienzo, 8

Inside a palace that you can easily think is just another “typical” building, a gem: an internal court enriched by Mediterranean plants and vintage objects, weekly replaced by different ones. There are books, uncommon objects, vintage dresses, jewels, works of art, chosen with an in–depth and rare selection. Comfortably sitting on vintage chairs and sofas, it is possible to use the wi –fi connection, meet someone for work or just flip
the pages of a newspaper, sipping fantastic teas and eating Sardinian biscuits.

5. Elettrauto Cadore
via Pinaroli 3

I think this is one of the best places to have breakfast – and not just that – in Milan. I like it very much because it’s full of light and it develops
especially outside, with tables just out of the café, just at the corner of Cadore with via Pettinaroli. It even has a real workshop close by! I love the fact that it is sort of en plein air, but also that I always find some friends when I go there: a very familiar place to me.

6. Triennale Design Cafè
viale Alemagna, 6

The Triennale Design Cafè is the perfect symbol of the lifestyle dimension of the Triennale, seen not only as one of the most important museums of contemporary art and design in Milan, but especially as a cultural hub at the heart of the city, offering exhibitions, meetings, conferences or, simply, a place to share with your friends, sipping a cup of coffee. The Design Café is on the back of the building – the Palazzo dell’Arte, realized
in the ‘30s by Giovanni Muzio – and overlooks the breathtaking gardens bordering with Parco Sempione, scattered with artworks too.

7. Latteria San Marco
via San Marco, 24

One of my favourite places in Milan. When you enter Latteria San Marco, in fact, you feel like you are going into your grandma’s kitchen. The place is run by a couple, Arturo and Maria: he cooks, while she’s the waiter. The place is very little and does not accept reservation: act accordingly. They offer a simple, genuine kind of cuisine, very tasty: it’s homemade cookery. I often eat fried eggs with bottarga or puntarelle. It is a cosy place for eating with friends; clients are quite various, and you can find your neighbour there as well as Mario Testino, famous photographer.

8. Rebelot
ripa di Porta Ticinese, 55

This bistrot is located in one of the most lively areas of the city, the Navigli: the thing I very much like about Rebelot, a very popular place in Milan, is the ‘revisited’ concept of the classical aperitif in Milan. Their formula, in fact, combines the high quality of hand –made cocktails with aesthetics and mise en place. The place is perfect for a lively night, full of enthusiasm.

FOCUS ON: Rebelot

In the Milanese dialect, “rebelot” means confusion, the thing you taste – not in terms of cookery but of experience – at the Rebelot del Pont is a happy and lively chaos. The Rebelot, owned by Maida Mercuri, parent restaurant of the close Pont the Ferr, restaurant headed by the Michelin–star chef Matias Perdomo, is a young place (it opened in 2013) and very popular. It shies away from definitions – a bistrot for some, a tapas bar for others – trying to be both a restaurant in which you can drink high–level drinks and a bar in which you can taste delicious and refined meals: the kitchen is run by the Brazilian chef Mauricio Zillo, who can boast a period at the Dom in Sao Paolo, together with Alex Atala, with his recipes reviewing South American cuisine with Italian, quality–first style. Utmost quality both for food and for their preparation. You can choose to have single courses or a tasting menu, with 3, 5 or 7 courses:not only an aperitif, then.
