Mercato di San Lorenzo

On Thursday 6th October 2011, in Florence, inside of the Mercato di San Lorenzo  will be showcasing the best Italian wines and celebrating the country’s top restaurants: Pitti Immagine will be presenting the latest edition of “Le Guide de L’Espresso”: “I Vini d’Italia 2012” and “Ristoranti d’Italia 2012”.

The event will be organized by Pitti Immagine in collaboration with Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana and Comune di Firenze, with the contribution of Camera di Commercio di Firenze, Firenze Parcheggi and Agriventure, and will occupy the first floor of the historic 19th century building which was opened to the city again last year, on the occasion of the previous presentation. 

“This is the ninth consecutive year that we have presented this initiative”, says Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine, “which places the spotlight on two of our country’s best known and most important industries: Italian wines and restaurants which constitute an important vehicle for promoting the excellence of Italian products and Italian style around the world. And the presentation is being held in a truly unique location: one of the city’s historic architectural symbols and a point of reference for Florentines and tourists alike. 

The Mercato di San Lorenzo is one of the largest covered markets in Italy, designed by architect Giuseppe Mengoni, and was inaugurated in 1874 when it hosted the International Agricultural Fair.  The renovated first floor of the Market will become a very special location for the event thanks to the exciting layout created by architect Alessandro Moradei.
