MILAN, March 18 /CNW/ - Today Campari inaugurates its Gallery, a dynamic, multimedia and interactive place that traces the life of the brand through modern and contemporary art from 1860 to the present day, in its 150th anniversary year. Campari has collected pieces belonging to many different artists, such as Cappiello, Munari, and Depero, to whom Campari dedicated a temporary exhibit.
Campari was created by the talented Gaspare Campari, master drink maker, who gave birth to a brand that would later go on to be enjoyed around the world.
"We are proud to be able to open a gallery that will allow visitors to fully experience the essence of our brand," explains Bob Kunze-Concewitz, CEO Gruppo Campari. "Visitors will gain a unique experience of the worlds of art, communication and photography that over the years have secured the uniqueness and appreciation of our brand worldwide. The 150th anniversary is for us an inspiration to keep on growing and experiencing different creative and artistic forms, always following the red passion, the fundamental element of our daily commitment."
As well as opening the Galleria, Campari is launching the Campari Art Label project. Three artists - avaf, Tobias Rehberger and Vanessa Beecroft - starting from the essence of the colour red and from the achievements of this internationally famous aperitif, created three different art works to create exclusive and limited edition bottles that describes the various facets of the universe of Campari.
