Posted on July 30, 2013 by Megan

An ambitious project that showcases the work and ideas of some of the biggest established names, as well as exciting new talent from across Italy’s creative arts has been announced by Peroni Nastro Azzuro. The House of Peroni shows the new wave of contemporary Italian culture and the passion for Italian creativity.

In what is the first project of its kind, the premium Italian style brand has appointed an Italian Creative Council from across the creative arts, who have been commissioned by Peroni to deliver innovative new work. The work has been revealed in a unique immersive design experience, which is coming to a close after a successful month long residency at 41 Portland Place in central London this July.

Called The House of Peroni, it has been developed to celebrate and showcase the spirit of Italian creativity – the people, their work and the ideas – that are informing the creative landscape of tomorrow. It will provide guests with a unique space to see, touch and interact with the work and ideas from the Creative Council, which includes the celebrated architect Andrea Morgante (Shiro Studio) and designer Giovanni Alessi Anghini.
