Caffè Fernanda: a cafe in Milan with glamour from the 50s

A new Italian café is in town: Caffè Fernanda is a project by Rgastudio which aims to redesign the Pinacoteca di Brera as well as the collections inside. This cafe in Milan is a homage to Fernanda Wittgens who reopened that same gallery in the 1950s.

This building was bombed during WWII and rebuilt by Piero Portaluppi during the 50s. During that same decade is when Wittgens took action by reopening the café and lending her own name to it.

This café has a design with chromatic and material coherence with its new layout as well as being a fitting representation of the 1950s architecture of that spot. The walls are painted with an intense petrol blue which matches well with the warm hues of the gallery rooms.

The Marble floors and Lepanto-red frames have been successfully recovered by Rgastudio and the result is visible in the photos. They also added a ribbed walnut and antique brass bar, as well as some midcentury-style wooden furniture.

There are also some adjustable LED projectors mounted on rails that serve as the only source of light of the bar. Below Damini’s seventeenth-century painting there’s the round-edged bar which perfectly alludes to that Italian vintage wooden furniture.
