Refettorio Ambrosiano will be one of the main sites of next Milan Design Week: by offering a rich calendar of initiatives, it will open its doors to visitors from April, 12th to 17th. The core event will be the exposition of “Ut nutum”, a specific-site installation created by the Italian architect Anna Barbara. Besides offering a vision on the symbolic value of light, Barbara wants to promote the mission of Food for Soul: the artwork, in fact, is made from industrial textile waste that will now represent a source of beauty and creativity. “Milan Design Week is the most important cultural event in Milan and all over Italy; Refettorio Ambrosiano has to be part of it so to show its projectual ability through useful and beautiful objects”, the cultural curator Davide Rampello declared. The closing event at Refettorio will be on Sunday, April 17th, where the space will host a lunch cooked by Andrea Aprea, chef of VUN restaurant in Milan.
But Food for Soul won’t only stop in Piazza Greco: it will leave the place where it was born to meet the public at the Design Fair. Here Grundig will officially present the partnership with our association, so to confirm its commitment for environmental sustainability and in the fight against food waste. Italian chefs that have already been involved at Refettorio Ambrosiano will present anti-waste recipes for Grundig, by following the same philosophy of Food for Soul. Among those, there will be Viviana Varese, Ugo Alciati, the Costardi brothers and Matias Perdomo. It will be a unique occasion to share and promote the common cause against hunger and food waste.
