Eataly readies Cultura speaker series
Eataly, a Toronto location consisting of Italian-themed retail and dining businesses, has begun a promotion called “Cultura,” a speaker series that will specialize in arts and culture. The talks will take place in recently-opened restaurant Trattoria Milano. Beginning March 17, the ticketed events will address subjects intended to recall the heritage of Milan, such as entertainment, design, media, literature and art. Each event includes a three-course meal. The first three speakers will be abstract artist Peter Triantos, Justine Kohleal, assistant curator of The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, and multi-disciplinary artist Anthony Ricciardi.
“Cultura’s programming will enhance the guest experience with captivating conversations,” said Nicola Farinetti, global CEO of Eataly. “Our vision for Trattoria Milano was to create a cultural hub, a place for art, a place for theatre, a place for literature and a place to spark discussion. We see Trattoria Milano as more than a restaurant. It is an inspiring and immersive space that brings people together through food, art and culture.”
