Le tre stelle di Romano. Burano
art and history of a restaurant that has become a legend
Da Romano a Burano

For the first time on display, the centenary history of the restaurant “Da Romano” in Burano, a leading place in the artistic and cultural events of the twentieth century. The “Le Tre Stelle di Romano. Burano” exhibition curated by Giandomenico Romanelli and Pascaline Vatin recounts the hundred years of this ‘special place‘ and is set up in the spaces of the Fondazione Querini Stampalia, which promotes it together with Fondazione Berengo, Berengo Studio and Lineadacqua and can be visited until March 6, 2022.

About a hundred paintings from the “Da Romano” collection are on display, including works by Felice Carena, Umberto Moggioli, Gino Rossi, Mario Vellani Marchi, Filippo de Pisis, Emilio Vedova, Vittorio Basaglia and Semeghini, Dalla Zorza, Seibezzi, Novello, Guidi, Bucci. It is also possible to leaf through the “Libri d’Oro“, the restaurant’s precious notebooks: an extraordinary collection of documents that trace the lively and unrepeatable profile of the artistic scene in Venice and beyond between the 1930s and 1970s.

Since the early decades of the twentieth century, the restaurant Da Romano in Burano has been an artistic and cultural crossroads, frequented by important Italian and international personalities. Around the figure of the innkeeper Romano Barbaro are gathered names such as Jehudo Epstein, Giovanni Comisso, Aldo Palazzeschi, Orio Vergani, Riccardo Bacchelli, Emilio Vedova, Renato Guttuso, but also Arturo Martini, Oskar Kokoschka, Filippo de Pisis, Joan Mirò, Ernest Hemingway, Alberto Moravia.

At Romano’s you can also find the Milanese world of the Circolo di via Bagutta and the restaurant of the same name, led by Mario Vellani Marchi, and among the illustrious guests there are Maria Callas, Federico Fellini and Giulietta Masina, Mario Monicelli.

In short, the trattoria Da Romano is one of the most important artistic forges in Italy and perhaps in Europe; a place that continues to attract personalities, artists and designers from all over the world. For many of them, the restaurant is above all a place to return to, as the saying goes: “Da Romano non si viene, si torna……“.
