The flash mob dinner party has returned to Milan! And as one would expect from the Milanese/Italians it comes with a heavy dose of style.

Accordingly, this years edition of Cenaconme  (“Have dinner with me”) is all about the hats, Chapeau!  The slogan being

“se non potete essere eleganti…siate almeno stravaganti!”
“if you can’t be elegant … at least be extravagant!”

Cenaconme - Chapeau

This year’s edition being hats participants are asked to come wearing their most extravagant, distinctive, and creative hats: whether created or simply purchased.

Besides that the idea is pretty simple. Participants are asked to bring their own table, chairs, picnic blanket, and food – whatever it is they need to eat in company of others. The event starts at 7pm and ends 11pm. Then everyone is asked to pack up their things and depose of all their garbage in the the most civilized of ways.

Being a flash mob dinner the location is kept secret until the day before. Today is the day of the event, so I can tell you where it is going to be held. At the awe inspiringly beautiful piazza Sant’Ambrogio.
