The Caffè Pedrocchi Interprets De Chirico
The ritual aperitif at Caffè Pedrocchi, with DJ Valentino Borgia, has become a 'metaphysical appointment', with sophisticated 'musical spaces' ranging from Mina (cult Italiana singer) to Prince. The 'aperitif slow' (vaguely comparable to a sophisticated happy hour) presents micro food creations paired with drinks that are ever more fancy, and add to the exclusive champagne list offered by the establishment.
Founded in 1831 in downtown Padua by Antonio Pedrocchi, the Caffè blueprint was designed by Venetian architect, Giuseppe Jappelli. The Caffè Pedrocchi is known also as the 'Caffè senza porte' (coffee house without doors) because, as the founder imagined it, it should never close, thus allowing anybody to walk in without being forced to purchase anything.
Many famous guests have sat on the sofas and at the tables of the historic hangout. From Stendhal, to whom a signature zabaione is dedicated, to poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, artists Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, George Sand, Eleonora Duse and Théophile Gautier.
The multiple rooms of the Caffè Pedrocchi are the ideal destination for cultural events, fashion shows, jazz festivals, musical events, art exhibitions, literary and enogastronomic appointments, conferences, and business meetings, among others. In 2006 the 'Caffè senza porte' was featured in the Golosario guide by wine and food journaliust, Paolo Massobrio. In addition, for the first time it appeared in the yearly Espresso magazine guide, which lists the best Italian restaurants.
