Sense and sensibility
Written by Fabio Marzari   

_dsc0433b_credits_matteo_defina.jpgT Fondaco dei Tedeschi won’t cease to surprise us – and we weren’t used to it in droopy winter Venice! All that was missing was that one piece to make our experience at Fondaco all the more fulfilling. Restaurant AMO is now open in the courtyard, a restaurant that makes purity its leitmotiv.

 

Around the concept of luxury, T Fondaco developed an experience that is all their own, one where beauty is revealed, not flashed before your eyes. Discovery, research, try, make things your own and allow yourself to ignore any stress of forced exhibition. The encounter between uber-creative Philippe Starck and brothers Massimiliano and Raffaele Alajmo gave life to wonderful places, like Caffè Stern in Paris – a hymn to life and joy.

Even graphic art is purposefully unconventional, paying due respect to the iconic Venetian mask, the ones that erase the labels and the limits of outer appearance, thus revealing the self. AMO is a revelatory experience, a metaphor of Venice and its thousand creeks of mystery and legend.

 

It changes with the light of day: bright and welcoming during the day, secret and mysterious at night, when shops close and the chromatic intensity of the dark marbles intensifies, lights dim, and the tall-backrest sofas invite more intimate and relax conversation. In the words of Philippe Starck: “My idea was to create with matter – a strong, yet ethereal matter. A composition of different hues to find and define volumes without using lines. A game of lights with grey as only tool. I wanted this matter to evoke this body, this substance Venice resides in.”
