ARCO needs no introduction. Bestseller of the Italian company FLOS, designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962. An arch in stainless steel and aluminum, fixed to the ground by a block of white Carrara marble, supports the dome from which the light is radiated. A single stroke of pencil that holds the light, like a rainbow that disappears into the clarity of the sky. Never predictable linearity, elegant and refined simplicity, ARCO is the emblem of Italian design, a perfect combination of quality, style, history, research and emotion.
GUALTIERO MARCHESI and Italian cuisine
GUALTIERO MARCHESI borned in Milan in 1930, raised in a productive culinary environment, deepened his culinary studies between Italy, Switzerland and France, and then he opened his first Michelin-starred restaurant in Milan in 1977. Marchesi is one of the most famous Italian chefs in the world and he is considered the founder of modern Italian cuisine and many famous chefs such as Cannavacciuolo and Cracco were his students. He was director of the International School of Italian Cuisine in Colorno (Parma) and he founded the Italian Culinary Academy in New York in 2006. Marchesi has always been passionate about art and music. We find an example of this in the cutlery collection designed for Broggi: a balanced fusion of style and practicality, the GUALTIERO MARCHESI collection aims to simplify the culinary experience without giving up the Art de la table.
