dandyism. dandy restaurant.

dandyism is a behavior that spread during the english regency and the french restoration.

typical of dandies, it consists of an ostentation of elegant manners and dressing, characterized by forms of exaggerated individualism, of ironic detachment from reality.

the phenomenon of dandyism has been interpreted by some as purely superficial and only concerning fashion.

thomas carlyle defines the dandy as "a man whose sector, office and existence consists in wearing clothes".

however, this criticism derives from a real reaction to changes in the european social structure that occurred in the nineteenth century.

with his lifestyle, his attitude and his way of presenting himself, which goes beyond the mere display of elegance in clothing, the dandy intends to unequivocally define the features that distinguish him from the crowd.

the space in question is dressed in prestigious and refined, luxurious and majestic elements.

black and white marbles, white leather and beiges velvet, black glasses and dark woods, borders, lamp structures and gilded coverings with ad hoc designed patterns. all included in the context of catering.

difficult but not impossible operation, thanks to the large windows that allow natural light to take possession of the space, making it very welcoming and charming, and thanks to a precise technical-lighting study studied in every detail, with the creation of different lighting scenarios that change perception and space based on needs and especially at times of the day.
