I Lunedì al Luogo (“Mondays at Il Luogo”) are a small cultural event that we organize for three years on a monthly basis in our smaller room for a small group of diners. Focusing on a oeno-gastronomical topic, on these Mondays the event includes the participation of a guest who is invited to tell from his point of knowledge the topic of the evening. We develop a parallel culinary or wine based path on the given theme, to which wines or foods are respectively paired as a sort of counterpoint. An artist/scenographer makes a re-reading of the subject from a different point of observation, reading selected passages ranging from poetry to theater, to literature, to science, and which are interwoven with words, foods, wines.
