Art, food, shoes, fashion, beer, handbags, ice cream and pizza - no one does the finer things in life quite like the Italians. Next month, 64 Lincoln's fields in Holburn will be awash with Italian style and culture all with a retro twist. The best of Italian food and drink, fashion and design will be celebrated, the entire exhibition is inspired by the year 1963, when Carlo Peroni created his iconic Peroni Nastro Azzurro beer.
World renowned pioneers from all creative realms will be represented at the event, names which include the fashion designer Vivetta, the innovative mixologist Dennis Zoppi, architect and co-designer of the Enzo Ferrari museum Andrea Morgante and the owners of the successful Bottega restaurant in Wapping.
It promises to be a aural and gastric delight from start to finish during the month of May.
Paper sculptor Daniele Papuli will re-create his piece 'Blue Ribbon' for the event.
