The Peroni Bar- choose your beverage
If you’re looking for the classic Peroni Nastro Azzurro, a delicate balance of bitterness and citrus
aromatic notes with a surprisingly quick and dry finish. For the adventurous drinkers, you have a choice of
cocktails. Award winning ‘Master of Mixology’, Simone Caporale will return for a third year to bring his
inimitable style of cocktail mastery to the infusion menu. With gin, Peroni Nastro Azzurro and sweet,
spring-like citrus notes, the Oro Liquido liquid gold serve glows bright from the menu and is joined
by L’Astratto – a long, more bitter serve featuring flavoured, coloured ice cubes. A fragrant take on
the traditional Bellini, the Peroni Peony will feature crisp white peach, grape, peony and magnolia
Francesco Mazzei’s Calabrian inspired menus
The ‘Master of Taste’ Chef Francesco Mazzei’s will blend his innovative cooking style
with his Southern Italian heritage to bring the rich ingredients of his homeland to life.
Francesco’s simple yet vibrant antipasti platter will provide the perfect accompaniment
to any aperitivo occasion. Guests will be taken on a journey through some of Italy’s finest
meats as they explore each section of the platter – nduja mixed with ricotta and chives,
salami and cured smoked duck with beetroot puree, all accompanied by a range of Italian
breads and a selection of cheeses. The vegetarian plate will bring together charcoal
grilled aubergine with soft boiled quail’s egg, polenta with a rich mushroom mousse,
crostini with roasted peppers and quinoa, a pulse pate of raw vegetables and a creamy
bocconcini with fresh tomato.
The Featured Artists
The three artists have created works around the theme of ‘craftsmanship’– a quality inherent
to Peroni Nastro Azzurro. Within each 50 minute session, the artist will enable guests to step
inside and explore their work using the Tilt Brush technology and give a demonstration on how
to use it. Guests will then be given the freedom to experiment and explore their own artistic
talent, under the guidance of an expert.
Italian artist Fabio Giampietro (2016 winner of the prestigious Lumen Prize for digital art)
will host two evenings at the upcoming House. He has drawn on his early childhood memories with his carpenter
uncle and blended this with his love of the ‘Futurismo’ art movement of the early 20th century.
Fabio comments: “My signature style is to create a fairly abstract cityscape and play with a sense of perspective.
For this project, entitled ‘Neon Vertigo’, I’ve invoked the craftsmanship that was apparent in my uncle’s joinery
work and related it to architecture and the concept of the ‘metropolis’ – a motif that is apparent throughout all of my work.”
Italian artist Peeta AKA Manuel Di Rita, our final artist in residence, has looked to his own heritage and
experience in the art world to bring his work to life – using Venetian ‘Murano’ glassware as his muse.
Peeta’s work mixes graffiti, painting and sculpture, using a wide range of mediums to create three dimensional styles.
As is apparent in his art on display today, the technology has enabled him to explore the textural, cylindrical and
concave qualities of virtual sculpture.
Brit artist Carne Griffiths found his inspiration from his 12 years as an embroidery designer,
from which came a real fascination with the creation and manipulation of the drawn line.
His work creates a journey of escapism, which he has been able to magnify and explore in
more depth through the use of Virtual Reality Technology.
