Gucci Just Opened Their First Restaurant In Florence, Italy

Founded in Florence in 1921, it was in 2011 that Gucci opened its aforementioned museum (or Museo, as it is known in this corner of Tuscany) in the ancient Palazzo della Mercanzia, in the centre of the city.

Italy's celebrated chef Massimo Bottura has opened the doors to his newest restaurant at the long-awaited Gucci Garden museum, which marries both haute couture and haute cuisine in a single historic space in Florence. Under the eye of creative director Alessandro Michele, the Italian fashion house has once again found its footing to become one of the most talked about brands in fashion today.

Gucci Garden also has two rooms of retail space on the ground floor, featuring Gucci staples in addition to products that are exclusively designed and available at Gucci Garden. Well, aside from the ubiquity of the tune's simple yet effective hook, the world-renowned chef behind the three-Michelin-starred Osteria Francescana has a new venture that, to fully explain, involves saying the word "Gucci" almost as many times as the song.

The interior of the restaurant is created to make its great cuisine stand out - and references Gucci's cultural heritage.

Gucci Garden will also feature an exhibit area which houses a bazaar style boutique and cinema room. The Osteria will serve Italian classics, like Parmigiano Reggiano tortellini, pork buns, and mushroom risotto that are sure to be as deliciously decadent as the fashions produced by Gucci.

"The past is very much part of the present at Gucci, which is perfectly in keeping with Alessandro's idea of the brand", curator Maria Luisa Frisa said in a statement.
