House of Peroni

House of Peroni, a month-long celebration of Italian culture and style is winging its way back to the capital from May 2 and the line-up is a total corker. Comprising food, fashion, design and art events, the House is inspired by the spirit of 1963; a transformative year when Italian style became world renowned and the year Carlo Peroni created Peroni Nastro Azzurro. 

Andrea Morgante, the experience director and architect of this year’s House has been kind enough to share his highlights, so grab a beer and check out his top six picks below:

1. The Terrace (Peroni Nastro Azzurro Pavilion)
‘It is always a special, rare event to erect a pavilion in central London. It will be a micro-architecture installation, open to public all day until late in the evenings. I look forward to seeing a bright Yves Klein blue structure in the middle of Lincoln’s Inn Fields austere architecture.’

2. Daniele Papuli ribbon installation
‘I love Daniele’s work. His stairwell’s paper installation will be sensual, fluid and engaging.’

3. Angela Loveday
‘Angela’s installation, called “Carous-elle”, will question the role of women in modern consumerist society using a series of provoking objects.’

4. Carnovsky installation
‘The creative Italian duo will create a spectacular room that will change and react according to the changing RGB lighting, revealing invisible painted landscapes on the walls.’

5. The fashion Bar
‘Inspired by one of the greatest Italian graphic designers, Franco Grignani, the bar will showcase a 2D, black and white pattern applied to walls, ceiling and floor, recreating a three-dimensional optical illusion.’

6. Il Barbiere event
‘This event, taking place every Wednesday evening will recreate, with a twist, a quintessential Italian experience at the House. It will be a sentimental and contemporary homage to this iconic piece of Italian social history.’

House of Peroni runs from May 2-31, 64 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3JX. Find out more and book events at thehouseofperoni.com.
