ArchiChefNight Firenze

Five architecture firms, from each italian city, tell their story through a dish and become chefs for one night, each of them dedicating themselves to the preparation of a course on the menu.

The participating audience has the task of electing the best dish of each single stage. The grand finale in Milan,  where the firms who have won the individual stages, compete  to elect the Winner of ArchichefNight Italia 2017. The Florentine stage will be held on Wednesday 12 September 2017, 8.30 pm at the Caffè dell’Oro, Lungarno degli Acciaiuoli 2P, Florence.


Wonder, wait and performance,                         

Since 1979 the firm alternates architecture and scenography, by  working in the most important Italian theatres and collaborating with renown Italian and International directors  . The firm is also responsible for the renovation and restoration of the historic Niccolini theatre, in the heart of Florence.  Theatre as a theme is therefore an important part of the firm’s identity.

The magic of the opening of the curtain recalls the atmosphere of a theatre,  It is a screen that by hiding a content, postpones  perception, generating awe and wonder.  The dish should therefore have a screen, an element that the commensal should unveil in order to reach its content, with a theatrical gesture, almost as if it were a performance.
