For us Italians, the aperitivo is a social ritual, a special moment of the day, in which you relax by having a drink with friends before dinner.
The 2023 edition of Cleaf calendar pays homage to Milan, the capital of Italian happy hour, the place that gave life to the cocktail that made history: the Negroni Sbagliato, created in 1972 at Bar Basso by a mistake in mixing.
We have chosen twelve iconic places of the Milanese aperitivo, re-interpreted by the illustrator Ray Oranges including Cleaf textures.
