Synopsis

In 1931 the barman Giuseppe Cipriani won the esteem of an American client who found himself without money, Harry Pickering, with a gesture of generosity. The latter invested in a bar to reward him, which became the kingdom of Cipriani and took the name of Harry's Bar. From its opening until today, the restaurant has been a meeting place for great personalities from art, literature, politics and gastronomy, without ever losing sight of the tradition of the Italian tavern. Its legendary aura was consolidated in 2001, when it was proclaimed a national monument by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage.
