Marmomac – the leading international exhibition dedicated to marble and natural stones – will welcome food and wine among the protagonists with ‘Ristorante d’Autore’ Four famous chefs, four exclusive menus, a selection of DOC wines and the beautiful stone materials found in nature: these are the ingredients of “Nature Works” within the scope of ‘Ristorante d’Autore’. This location curated by ADI Veneto Trentino Alto Adige Delegation is exclusive for guests attending Marmomac, the leading international trade fair dedicated to the natural stone sector scheduled in Verona 25-28 September. Nature releases welcoming and relaxing energy. ‘Ristorante d’Autore’ – where excellent food will be served in conjunction with carefully selected wines in collaboration with Tommasi Family Estates, historic producers of classic Valpolicella wine by now active with owned estates in 5 Italian regions – will be a place of welcome, conviviality and relaxation. The theme underlying this project – part of The Italian Stone Theatre in Hall 1 at Marmomac – is to explore the features of rock in nature in order to interpret them and give shape to objects furnishing the location so that guests feel welcomed by the movement and sensations of rocky landscapes. The material representing the forms of nature will include marble or natural stone, shaped and modelled by passing time. Over thousands of years, water, wind and stone merge to create a single, constantly changing form. Nature surrounds each element and our mother earth presents herself to us through the gaze of millennia. The restaurant will welcome the cuisine of renowned star chefs who will take turns during the trade fair – Giovanni Ricciardella of Cascina Vittoria Restaurant (25 September), Giancarlo Perbellini of Casa Perbellini Restaurant (26 September), Bartolini of Glam Enrico Venezia Restaurant (27 September), Matteo Grandi of DeGusto Cuisine Restaurant (28 September) – and will be set up with a reception desk and 15 tables in natural stone. Each table will be a kind of snapshot captured by the designer’s eye against an evocative setting with tree and shrub species. The following wines will be tasted: Caseo Pinot Nero Brut Tommasi Le Fornaci Lugana Doc 2018 Tommasi Rafael Valpolicella Classico Superiore Doc 2017 Tommasi Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Doc 2016 Tommasi Soave Le Volpare 2018 Tommasi Amarone of Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2015 Caseo Moscato IGT Pavia 2017 The Restaurant will be open 25-28 September 12.30-14.30.
