The unexpected color combination of zingy chartreuse upholstery and pastel-color candies in Pasticceria/Bar Marchesi’s new location in Milan feels conjured from the same mood board as Prada’s fall 2015 collection. The Italian fashion house recently acquired the historic Milanese pastry shop, and choose one of the best italian interior designers for its makeover! And what you won? Everytime you think in “Where to go in Milan“, this Roberto Baciocchi project will be the perfect place to go in Milan!
Pasticceria Marchesi opened during Milan Spring Summer 2016 show but has actually been around since 1824. The historic Milanese pastry shop was recently bought by Prada and in addition to the original landmark location at Via Santa Maria alla Porta, 11a, they have opened a new pastel colored jewel box at the fashionable and most , 9.
You can grab a coffee at the stand up bar or sit down for lunch, that is if you can find a seat. It’s so popular already that I could only buy the little boxes candies to go for gifts. Marchesi sandwiches and cakes are also available at Bar Luce at Fondazione Prada.
The chantilly cake we had at Bar Luce was one of the best desserts so far and hopefully that someday more Marchesi will open in Italy.
