Allegrini 2018

The championship returns, wine & food is the protagonist in the Premier League stadiums

In San Siro La Collina dei Ciliegi wines and chef Bartolini’s cuisine, but the haute cuisine is very popular at Franchi, Olimpico and Juventus Stadium

Tomorrow the football championship returns, after months of abstinence, which has plunged the Belpaese into boredom and summer discomfort in the exhausting negotiations of calciomercato. The race for Juventus, Italy ’s champion for eight years now, starts again, with the pursuers more and more competitive and determined to narrow the gap. All to see the game, then, but with style. Because the stadiums are no longer those hellish basins and a bit disturbing that keep away families, on the contrary, the most important include real top restaurants, skybox and skylounge with a privileged view of the pitch where you can enjoy the cuisine of excellent chefs and accompany the exultation for a goal with a good toast. The trend was inaugurated several years ago by the Real Madrid, which opened Puerta 57 in the upper ring of the stadium at the Santiago Bernabeu. A trend, and a business, now arrived in Italy, with the Chianti Classico, for example, which in 2014 gave rise to the partnership with the Fiorentina to create the Crystal Lounge Gallo Nero : Tuscan cuisine, exclusively Chianti Classico wines and purple typhus. Today, the hospitality of Fiorentina, as well as that of Lazio and Sampdoria, is managed by Infront, which last season brought the dishes of 19 Jeune Restaurateurs of Italy to the Franchi, Olimpico and Ferraris.

In San Siro, on the other hand, there is the most long-lived reality: for the seventh consecutive year, in fact, the Valpolicella brand La Collina dei Ciliegi returns to manage, in partnership with Hospitality Milano, the food & wine offer of the Skylounge VIPs of the Milan stadium, for the home matches of Inter and Milan next season , which includes, in addition to the Premier League, the Italian Cup and, in the case of Inter, the Champions League. The starting whistle on August 26th, for the Inter-Lecce match, when at the Bistrot and at the Restaurant of the first red ring of the stadium will take place the wines of the Veronese winery combined with the starred menu of Enrico Bartolini. As in previous seasons, there will be two ambassadors of La Collina dei Ciliegi representing their respective teams: Beppe Baresi (Inter) and Daniele Massaro (Milan).

Even the duellists of recent years, Juventus and Napoli, have (or will have) their own space dedicated to food: at the Juventus Stadium, by far the most modern and welcoming stadium in Italy, the food areas are 30, animated by a real kitchen brigade, and if at the opening of 2011 it was the great and late lamented chef Gualtiero Marchesi to “baptize” them, today there are no starred chefs. There are enough stars on the shirts (three, ed), while the most important partnership, in this sense, is with the bubbles of the Trentodoc of Ferrari , which for years “wet” the championship victories in the field and in the locker room. The San Paolo of Naples, however, should unveil its sky box at the end of the renovation of the stadium , in a few weeks, and it is here that gastronomy of a certain level should be found (for now the conditional is a must). And if for Roma fans there is the experience of the “Tribuna 1927” , a bistro dedicated to Roma fans, Atalanta was lucky, in the 2014/2015 season, to be able to offer the fans of the Dea the cuisine signed by the Cerea family , three Michelin stars with the “Da Vittorio” of Brusaporto and, above all, a supporter of the team of Bergamo.
