cascina cuccagna (cuccagna farmhouse) is one of those places where you can simply forget that you are actually in a gray, noisy and always busy milan. a true oasis – where you may enjoy all the things you are missing while in a city like milan – green, peace and tranquility.
i’ve been to cascina cuccagna for the first time during the milan design week (salone del mobile) in april this year, when i visited an exhibition of furniture following the sustainable production concept (such as indastriadesign, about which i wrote before on my blog).
ever since then, i kept on coming back to cascina cuccagna. was it for their lovely garden, where the children are more than welcome to play and run freely, or for the garden with veggies which are actually used in their restaurant? maybe it is simply the atmosphere – you may come here and sit in the garden, without even ordering the food. you may bring your book, or – even better – a friend, and enjoy this lovely ambient.
if you decide to eat – there is a restaurant “un posto a milano”, with wide choice of organic meals, which are being changed constantly, depending on the current supplies. the water is on the house, it comes from the aqueduct of milan. the ambient is cool and simple. just the way i like it.
if you haven’t noticed by now – i strongly recommend this place to all of you coming to milan and looking for a nice and cosy place with relaxed atmosphere and good food. for more details, visit their website: http://www.cuccagna.org/
