“Espresso. The ultimate symbol of all things Italian. Dark. Rich. Earthy. Complex yet effortless. Elegant yet primal. Hot. When made in the right way, the only way, it is like nothing you have ever known. This is Italy to me.
For a long time, “Italian” has conjured thin stereotypes in the minds of many non-Italians and even today, Italians puzzle over what it means to be one.
And so, this is my manifesto, my Espresso Manifesto: to create and showcase works that proudly display the wonders, genius and beauty of those earthy, complex, elegant people, to contribute to the Italian 2.0 and to share all this with those who are lovers of all things Italian” — La Nardi
