cadena + asociados' il mercato gentiloni blends mexican design with italian cuisine

the concept for cadena + asociados’ ‘il mercato gentiloni’ project is defined from the connecting threads between mexico and italy, rome and saltillo, gentiloni – arizpe, always appealing to this cultural encounter and personalities, highlighting the humor and authenticity that has accompanied the family. for this culinary space located in saltillo, mexico, aspects of the culture, architecture, flora and gastronomy of both countries are merged with the lifestyle, customs and personality of the gentiloni – arizpe family. a concept that transports users to a multi-sensory experience that has always been in the creators’ lives, one that narrates the millennial tradition, the exchange, the community and a moment through the flavors and aromas from the countryside and the world.

the creative synthesis that inspires the visual solution of mexican based cadena + asociados concept design‘s project are the themes that are seen reflected in the artwork — collages created by don emanuele gentiloni. these are vestiges of an intimate vision of his own world, always connected to emotions, moments, people, food, land, wine and how it is all visually synthesized, provoking joy and curiosity to discover them. the architectural language is a metaphor of the industrial history of the city of saltillo and pays homage to its tradition as a brick manufacturer in mexico’s northeastern region. the architectural program unfolds on various levels and works as a great and continuous journey around the project.

the culinary experience is a trip through the traditional flavors and aromas created by the gentiloni family and is presented in the form of a market, bakery, juice bar, mexican and italian restaurant, cooking school and an event hall, all interwoven by terraces, vertical gardens, covers and openings. the interior and exterior are merged to take advantage of the wonderful climate of the city, thus strengthening the encounter between visitors and dinner guests that fill with color, joy and delight an unprecedented place in the north of the country.
