The Langosteria group has unveiled a new concept, Langosteria Cafè Milano, near the Duomo cathedral. ‘The decision to open a Langosteria in the center was a tribute to Milan,’’ said chief executive officer Enrico Buonocore. The group also has two other restaurants in Milan – Langosteria 10, in Via Savona, and Langosteria Bistrot, in Via Bobbio. The kitchen team is led by executive chef Domenico Soranno and in keeping with the group’s other restaurants, the menu offers salmon tartare with passion fruit, seafood plateau, king crab, and pasta with clams and shellfish.

Brilliant! The Futures of Italian Jewelry
La Triennale di Milano is presenting an exhibition called “21st Century. Design After Design,’’ that traces the history of Italian design. Within this exhibit, “Brilliant! The Futures of Italian Jewelry’’ displays more than 50 Italian jewels made by artisans and young designers that highlight art, design, fashion and new technologies. It is curated by Alba Cappellieri, director of the Jewelry Vicenza Museum and chief executive officer of the Women’s Jewelry Association in Italy. “In recent decades, jewelry lost its artistic dignity, but this exhibition restores its value in the design world,” said Cappellieri. Pieces by Giampiero Bodino, Buccellati, Pomellato and Bulgari are on display. “The greatest strength of Italian jewelry is in cultivating old-fashioned materials and skills while evolving new techniques and technologies. Italians embrace the past with the future,’’ she added.
