The House of Peroni returns to Dublin this summer for its fourth instalment, from Thursday, 22nd August, until Sunday, 1st September, 2019. Part of a global House of Peroni series, which includes events in Barcelona, Paris, Stockholm, Santiago and Johannesburg, this year’s Dublin residency will see the Royal Hibernian Academy on Ely Place, Dublin 2, transformed into a stylish Peroni inspired experience.
Earlier in the spring, Peroni Nastro Azzurro took nine creatives, known as the Creative Council, on a trip to Puglia in Italy, including three Irish creatives – Roisin Lafferty, multi award winning designer, Killian Crowley, chef de partie at Michelin-starred Aniar restaurant in Galway, and Kev Freeney, a creative director in Algorithm, widely known for their highly technical and creative productions. They were immersed in the style of Peroni along with the beauty of authentic Italian design, culture, architecture, food and craftsmanship, and will bring this inspiration back to Dublin to create this year’s House of Peroni residency experience.
Roisin Lafferty will be tasked with designing the aesthetics of the RHA interior. Following her trip to Puglia, Roisin said: ‘Brimming with sophistication and elegance, Puglia’s aesthetic of refined arches, understated whites, and glistening jewel seascapes, framed the chilled and inviting environment. I am really excited to capture some of its charm and character in this year’s House of Peroni design’. In Italy, Roisin stayed in Masseria Ceravolo, a farm house steeped in history and tradition that was lovingly restored and now is an elegant country house. Rosin will combine the style of Peroni with the beauty of Puglia in her creation.
With responsibility for creating the atmosphere within The House of Peroni, Kev Freeney will draw on his immersive experience with Peroni and his time spent in Puglia to create an atmosphere that speaks of the quality and style of Peroni. Kev spent time with architect, Riccardo Cavaciocchi, of the Paper Factor, a company that produces a solid material made from a new compound of micro-paper, which is an innovative evolution of papier-mâché. He also visited music studio, Sude Studio. Incorporating Puglia’s rich craftsmanship, culture and artwork, Algorithm will design a new immersive audio visual experience in the RHA for the House of Peroni.
Award winning Irish chef, Killian Crowley, will curate the exclusive dining menu at this year’s House of Peroni, which will focus on top Irish produce served in a Pugliese style. As well as this, Killian will also develop three unique gelato flavours that will be served in the House of Peroni Dublin, Barcelona, Paris and Stockholm – preserved lemon, olive oil, and a Peroni gelato. Killian was inspired by the simplicity of the food, the variety of ingredients, and the passion of the people and food producers in Puglia. He saw first-hand how important the food culture is in this part of the world, having spent time with executive chef, Domingo Schingaro, and Michelin star-awarded coach, Andrea Ribaldone, in Borgo Egnazia.
The House of Peroni is open to the public from Thursday, 22nd August, until Sunday, 1st September, 2019, in the Royal Hibernian Academy on Ely Place, Dublin 2. No admission fee and no booking required for general entry. Over 18s only.
