Ernestomeda provided the kitchens for the new Country House created by Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore

Ernestomeda supplies the kitchens for the use of guests at  Casa Maria Luigia, the new guest house belonging to Massimo Bottura and Lara Gilmore, offering the chance to experience unique Emilian hospitality.

Bottura, Chef Patron of Michelin three-star restaurant Osteria Francescana, ranked top of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2016 and 2018, recently inaugurated the guest house that bears his mother's name, where guests can relax amidst a blend of art, nature and traditional and gourmet cuisine.

Casa Maria Luigia was conceived to provide comfortable, elegant, friendly hospitality, where every action is based on a sense of sharing. For this reason, the Ernestomeda kitchens are fundamentally important, providing an area where guests can really feel at home.


The composition created with Icon, in the  IconColor version, chosen by the Chef for the main kitchen at Casa Maria Luigia features Ingo Black matt lacquered units and Ernestomeda exclusive Stone+ worktop, together with an island with  Carrara Marble worktop. The kitchen's convenience is even further enhanced by the use of appliances by the Grundig brand, including the hob, oven, microwave and refrigerator.

The main kitchen is the fulcrum of the guest house, completely at the guests' disposal, where they can meet for breakfast or lunch, in an atmosphere of relaxed conviviality that the chef and his wife have intentionally created to ""pamper"" their clients: Bottura himself often hangs out with them, offering them a taste of a special dish or just stopping for a chat.

IconColor  was also chosen for the kitchen in the swimming-pool area provided for guests' use, entirely at their disposal; it is in Corian® throughout and equipped with Grundig appliances. Finally, the simple, elegant style of the  Soul kitchen model adds to the personality of one of the apartments: a private, comfortable kitchen, once again fitted with Grundig appliances.


Black and white are the predominant colours of the two main kitchens, which give the villa's light-filled interiors a modern, state-of-the-art aura, the perfect counterpoint to the genuinely traditional, artistic inspirations of the guest house's interior design, decorated with works of art, designer creations and antiques.
