The traditional Milanese cafeteria “Cucchi" has been entirely renovated by the Italian designer Cristina Celestino.

Thanks to this reinvention, the famous Cucchi pastry became "Caffè Concerto Cucchi," an urban oasis in the beating heart of Milan.

Before this change, entering in Cucchi's pastry seemed to return in the Italian 50s, bringing back the "dolce vita" years, frequented by elegant members of the Milanese high society and characterized by crystal chandeliers and wooden tables.

The project now involves exotic elements, velvet pillows and bright colors.

Cristina has imagined Caffè Concerto Cucchi as an urban oasis inspired by the hues and techniques of the art of pastry: every intervention is a delicate balance of inlays, organized in inviting montages, stratifications, multicolored effects, and different textures.
