Pasticceria Cova on via Montenapoleone has strengthened its presence with a major restyling project
This year, Pasticceria Cova, one of Milan's oldest coffee and pastry shops, is celebrating its 200th anniversary. Cova, is located on via Montenapoleone, one of the Quadrilatero della moda's most glamorous shopping streets. To mark the occasion, the shop has been renovated and expanded on the via Sant’Andrea side. This was done using part of the building's prestigious courtyard designed at the end of the 17th century by renowned architect Giuseppe Piermarini, designer of Teatro alla Scala. A Milanese institution, Cova was first established in 1817 on the corner between via Verdi and piazza della Scala. In 1950 it moved to its current prestigious premises on via Montenapoleone where, for generations, it has been renowned for its savoir-faire, product excellence and impeccable service. Be enchanted by this timeless venue where the past blends seamlessly with the present! In addition to its new outdoor area which is an oasis of pure relaxation in the frenetic heart of the city, the careful restyling of the interiors deserves a special mention. Particular attention was paid to Cova's distinctive decorative elements including the entrance mosaic, the wooden flooring, the golden mirrors, velvet sofas and the original crystal chandeliers. The restyling also included a total makeover of the kitchens which were refurbished in keeping with the latest technological standards, creating a perfect blend of design innovation and tradition. An interesting fact for lovers of curiosities: in order to preserve the venue's authentic atmosphere, the owners deliberately kept the shop's original historic polished mahogany counter decorated with a top in precious Italian marble! >> www.covamilano.com Via Montenapoleone, 8 M3 Montenapoleone
