Cracco in galleria
Milan (MI) Italy
Cracco in Galleria is the latest project by award-winning chef Carlo Cracco and is a luxury restaurant in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, in Milan. The project, the work of architects Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli of the Peregalli firm, is on 5 floors and includes a café with bistro, a restaurant, a winery and a private events room, all combined in the same facility. Marazzi ceramic and stoneware tiles were chosen for all the location’s kitchens (found on every floor) and the washrooms. The iconic Triennale – the “four curve” tile designed for Marazzi by Gio Ponti and Alberto Rosselli in the ‘60s – covers all the kitchen walls. The collection, in the SistemC Architettura version, was chosen in the Avorio, Ocra and Nero colours and dialogues with the Mystone Lavagna Nero 30x60 stone-effect stoneware installed on the floors. The washrooms, on the other hand, are in the refined Allmarble marble-effect in the two Saint Laurent and Statuario finishes, providing a fine example of how stoneware and marble can dialogue to exquisite effect in the architectural restoration of a conservation-listed historic building.
