Set-up for an event with a Reuse theme

Once upon a time there was a sad and abandoned garden attached to a splendid Villa. The Villa itself had dusty basements where old objects were lying around, waiting for a second life. Fortunately, one day along came a young restaurateur in search of somewhere unusual to set up his activity and, as always, Dream On were quickly on the scene, armed with tool boxes and a never-ending amount of fantasy. The idea of creating the furnishings for an open-air summer Pub using re-cycled material came from a desire to include the story of the Villa, and it’s surroundings, within the activity itself and consequently giving old objects a new lease of life.  A cosy and secluded part of the garden was chosen as the ideal place to build a dance-floor. We made tables from old window-frames and doors. We used the frames of old beach-umbrellas to create lighting features and wine barrels were turned into bar tables. The seating area was built from old pallets and d’antan seats. We found old yogurt containers and mason jars in an adjacent old creamery and transformed them into candle holders.  Old fruit crates were painted in bright colours and used to create the entrance gate and partitions. We are pleased to share some photos taken during the work-in-progress and invite you to visit Green Pub,  Villa Taticchi in Ponte Pattoli, Perugia, Italy. You can enjoy good food and music in a cosy atmosphere and, if you like, you can send us a message with your impressions and any suggestions you may have.
