The Fresco


The Fresco

By Francesco Clemente – Piazza Duomo Restaurant, Alba, 2007

Piazza Duomo is renowned for the skilled culinary expertise of Enrico Crippa; adding to the chef’s culinary art is another masterpiece that makes this restaurant particularly unique and special. With the consistent passion for contemporary art that accompanies all projects of the Ceretto family, all four walls of Piazza Duomo are adorned by a fresco by Neapolitan artist Francesco Clemente. A giant grape leaf, paying tribute to the commissioning family, embracing a map of the world with its five continents, while the branches break out into a series of metaphoric images along the four walls of the room with soft colors inspired by the Langhe landscape.
