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
