Caffè Mulassano


I took this photo inside to Caffè Mulassano. Realized in pure style Art Nouveau also known as Liberty, and opened in 1907 Mulassano is more than a little Cafè. It's a sort of jewel with really few tables (three inside and four outside). Mirrors and worked wood as walls and ceiling, Mulassano invented a sort of sandwich called "tramezzino" and an aperitif called "Liquore delle Alpi"... Both absolutely to taste ! --- Soon another photo taken outside.

Ho scattato questa fotografia all'interno del Caffè Mulassano. Costruito in puro stile Liberty (all'estero più comunemente noto come Art Nouveau) e inaugurato nel 1907 il Caffè Mulassano è più che un piccolo caffè. E' una sorta di gioiello con pochi tavolini (tre all'interno e quattro all'esterno), specchi e legno intarsiato, soffitto a cassettoni. Mulassano inventò il "tramezzino" e un liquore "Liquore delle Alpi" noto come cordiale e aperitivo... Entrambi decisamente da assaggiare ! --- Presto un'altra foto scattata all'esterno

I had no idea il tramezzino was invented here. Actually I though it was simply an Italian word for sandwich. Thanks for the education -:)

Amazing how mirrors make small spaces seem so much larger!

Of course I will invite there *each* of you when you will come to Torino !

Paty, in Italia "Liberty" è solo più popolare e conosciuto di "Art Nouveau" ma, ovviamente, son noti entrambi.

Hiker, Virginia and Dina and Saretta you are informed: just to come ;-)

Chuck, honestly speaking tramezzino and sandwich are a bit different. HERE you can find an Italian definition (and photo) of it. Unfortunately there isn't the English version. They also confirm that it was born in Torino by Mulassano.

Claud, ma benvenuta !
