Motta Caffè Bar: the myth

The tradition of Italian Coffee

It was 1928, when in Milan, in Galleria Carlo Alberto, Bar Motta was inaugurated, designed by architect Melchiorre Bega, and quickly became a symbol of the city and a meeting place for the bourgeoisie, students, intellectuals and artists . Its stylish and welcoming ambience, the bar counter, the showcase, the ice cream corner and a wide variety of specialty sweets helped making the tradition of Italian coffee famous in the world.

Today Motta Caffè Bar is an international brand that Autogrill promotes in Europe, that from the historic bar in Milan retrieves and interprets the essentials: the aggregation factor, the elegance of the premises, the selection of products, the attention to detail.
