Art & Food in Porta Nuova at AmaMi

A temporary exhibition of painter and illustrator Evelina Floris

Art and gastronomy, as you know, have always gone hand in hand. Appealing to taste and appealing to sight, in the end, are just different ways of appealing to the heart. Then, what happens when one of the most in-demand restaurants in the bustling area of Porta Nuova decides to collaborate with a promising young artists on the scene? You just have to visit the “Art & Food” exhibition to find out. From September 21 to November 21, the works of Evelina Floris from Como will be exhibited in the lively setting of the AmaMi restaurant, in the heart of Porta Nuova.

Art & Food | AmaMi Ristorante - Evelina Floris

In Floris’s paintings, the nostalgic aura of the grand dames of the past has united with the use of playful and fresh colors, all liveliness and oomph. Her geometries are minimal, the gazes of her female figures clear, her colors defined and sharp. The fluid, modern and romantic design together with an eye on the shape’s dynamism and another on creating an enchanting dream, find an ideal parallel in the Porta Nuova scenery, with the modern skyscrapers rising above Milanese facades that we are all so used to loving.

Art & Food | AmaMi Ristorante

Floris’s synthetic and vibrant painting is perfectly reflected in the gastronomic vision of Amami full of genuine tastes and scents, refined and familiar all at once. The flavors on the plate have the same defined identity, the same sought-after color composition of the canvas. Thanks to this project, painting – the ultimate status symbol – comes back to spark a dialogue with its audience in new forms, in the open context of a restaurant that since the very beginning wanted to be a reference point for this area, a place of gathering and friendship. Art abandons its ivory towers, its glass showcases and galleries, and returns to walking among people, amidst the crowd, close to its audience.

Art & Food | AmaMi Ristorante

An innovative choice that will reward the undisputed talent of Evelina Floris (already illustrator for Vogue, Glamour and Marie Claire just to name a few), bringing a wave of innovation to one of the most visited venues of Porta Nuova with a further merit of bringing the clientele close to art, together with educating to appreciate the pleasures of eating well. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Amami’s fans will exchange gazes with the charming painted ladies by Floris, being closer to her world of color and candor, lightness and elegance.

In order to find out more about Evelina, enjoy her paintings to the fullest (hurry though, they are on sale, and have all the chances to be purchased soon), all of this in front of a table covered with amazing dishes, all you have to do is go to Amami. We can’t reveal more, because, in de Vlaminck’s words, “good painting is like good food: it can be tasted, but not explained”.

Milano e la Mala

Today, Milan is a benchmark of business, design, innovation and fashion.
