In Milan, at 15 Via Santo Spirito, Montenapoleone bar are almost astonishing "Wunderkammer": that is the environment, the very seat of beauty and originality, set up with the taste of a wise exposure. Among the Depero, the Sironi and the De Pisis, there is the silver vintage airplane, there is the strange fan of yesteryear; or the nineteenth century French bagatelle, a kind of pinball ancestor: where the ball slides down between the silver nails, and wins if guesses the location and the hole. Arcana chests, furniture deco, ancient board games: cards, dice, the lot, the yellowed goose cartons, with the classic spiral journey of the popular symbols. For each object a story, a story, an unusual background.

Always exposed with generous tasteful attention of collectors, specialists and visitors, welcome in store with friendly cordiality.
