Tiziano Vudafieri, an Italian architect based in Milan and passionate about cooking, shares his two interests both at home and in his professional life. Through his profession, he succeeds in telling stories, representing unique and gourmet universes. Tiziano confides in South Side.
This architect is a food madman! At home, it is he who cooks for his wife, Catherine Vautrin, with whom he shares the passion for art, the only thing that, for him, can question the idea of beauty. Associated with Claudio Saverino in his architecture and design agency located in Milan, he projects concepts of luxury boutiques: Emilio Pucci, Tod's, Roger Vivier, Buccellati.
In parallel, with some partners, he has invested in the world of catering and opened Pisacco, Dry and Turbigo, raw design, chic and good places that proceed from a different lifestyle.
"For the star chef Andrea Berton we wanted a place that looks like him, a great classic that pays homage to the architecture of the years 1950-1960 and Gio Ponti."
In the background, the chic vintage frame of Dry, Cocktails & Pizzas in the rules of art.
By opening restaurants, what do you mean to bring?
Telling stories, saying that neither design nor cooking exists without adding something to them. At Dry, I wanted to create a surprise, just serve the best pizza (out of Naples!) In an unexpected setting. The most beautiful thing in decoration is the relationship of objects between them. Design is more an attitude than a detail.
