Dear friends, Now it’s official: we moved from Berlin to …Venice, Italy! During the upcoming months, here we’ll be doing a lot of food and art projects, as private chefs and also  as curators and co-founders of a new, exciting cultural adventure called “bocchediporto“. With bocchediporto we are planning a series of underground dinners hosted in the most fascinating places (sometimes hidden and not open to the public!) in town and in the islands of the lagoon. These are going to be unique, exclusive experiences where our guests will be able to enjoy a “total artwork” where everything is built and designed to create a dialogue between visual arts, architecture, history, food and people that will be always different and very special. We’ll be updating soon our blog with the next events…in the meantime you can always contact us here See you in Venice! Chiara and Marco Metti una Sera a Cena Advertisements

Having swayed under the weight of countless suppers, the pressures of conversation, of being worked upon, a form casting shadows reflects traced and anticipated action.
