Taste Notes: the Pavarotti Milano Restaurant Museum
Set within a stunning location on the fourth floor of Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the ’Pavarotti Milano Restaurant Museum’, dedicated to renowned Artist and Maestro Luciano Pavarotti, has just opened in the heart of the city. The space (opened by Pavarotti International 23 and the Seven Stars Galleria for Expo 2015) is one of the latest additions to the Milanese scene, boasting a typical Italian menu that mirrors the tastes and natural harmony so dear to the great Artist, with an area dedicated to live music, where young talents, nurtured by the foundation, will take turns to enthrall audiences with their performances. Inside, the venue is divided into 7 rooms and a lounge, with a store and bar, where visitors can not only gain a better understanding of the life of Maestro Luciano Pavarotti but also sample some of his favourite dishes. The exhibition area of the museum is based on the same themed experience as that of the Maestro Pavarotti’s House-Museum in Modena and was launched to coincide with the opening of Expo 2015. The exhibition is designed to offer guests a series of insights into the life of both the artist and the man. While strolling from room to room, guests will have a chance to admire photos of the Maestro either taken on-stage or in the company of renowned celebrities (e.g. the Big Luciano room) or while performing in front of the thousands of ardent fans whom he inspired with his voice (Open-air Opera room). On the walls, his story is not only enhanced by evocative images but also by memorabilia, personal objects, newspaper clippings, record covers and dedications that offer visitors chance to learn about the more private, less well-know aspects of his ‘big’ personality. Artistic installations, paintings and decorations by Modenese artist Mauro Roselli are featured throughout, while several of the great tenor’s most memorable, touching performances can be viewed on the mega-screen in the lounge.
