established as one of milan’s longest running producer of fine pastries and desserts, pasticceria marchesi has opened a new location in the city. owned by italian fashion house prada, who recently made a mark with their wes anderson-designed bar luce in fondazione prada, the two food spaces embody similarities of having traditional elements of a classic milanese cafe.

architect roberto baciocchi was charged with capturing the old-age allure and the classic essence of marchesi’s original shop on corso magenta, but at the same time fusing contemporary aspects into the new, larger setting. opulent finishes have not been spared throughout. mint marble walls mark the entryway whilst a central bar is framed in cherry wood with a background of classic aperitifs. meanwhile brightly-lit glass cabinets and vitrines display a decadent variety of sugar coated candies, chocolates, and cakes presented alongside treats wrapped in pastel packaging. further inside, two intimate seating areas allow guests to sit and and soak in the atmosphere while, enjoying the baked pastries on marble table tops with green, velvet seating.
