Unavoidable staging point for the Fuorisalone and reference point for enthusiasts and design professionals, the Spazio Rossana Orlandi opens for a new challenge at EXPO. The enthusiasm of the talent scout Rossana Orlandi (she was the launch, among others, namely, Piet Hein Eek, Nacho Carbonel and Nika Zupanc) joins that of the chef Marta Pulini (already owner of the Franceschetta and catering Bi Ben Dum) in a shared adventure: that of the temporary restaurant Marta, open from March to the end of October.
The restaurant occupies a space adjacent to the gallery, designed by Paola Navone and furnished by the same Rossana Orlandi with a mix of vintage pieces and production furniture.

The furnishings and the decorative objects at Marta are all for sale and come with price tag. The pieces are changed periodically. Photo: Andrea Liverani
Marta Pulini affirmed: "I have always had a deep interest and passion for natural ingredients even when it was still not a general trend." Photo: Andrea Liverani

The dishes offered by chef Marta Pulini are simple and light. The individual ingredients are treated with respect and are easily identifiable within the courses. Photo: Andrea Liverani
The marble chip flooring has been kept as it was; the walls are decorated with unique works and design pieces. Naturally these are for sale. Photo: Andrea Liverani

Customers can choose whether to order ‘a la carte’ or opt for the tasting menu. The chef Pulini, who has said: “My kitchen has roots in the house”, offers Emilian cuisine in small portions, in which the individual ingredients are easily recognizable. Served twice a week is also the traditional ‘carrello dei bolliti’ (an assortment of boiled meats with sauces). The Marta is cosy and pleasant, a heartwarming place to discover with joy and where one does not have to raise one’s voice to get noticed. Truly adorable.

Limited editions and unique pieces, chosen by Rossana Orlandi in person, furnish the restaurant “Marta”. The curatorship of the architectural project was, instead, in the hands of Paola Navone. Photo: Andrea Liverani

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
