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.
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.
