Find out what the Biennale artists’ favourite Campari drinks are and how they are made.

Our second featured cocktail is the drink that inspired the classic Negroni: THE AMERICANO.

Born in 1915, there are many stories about how this iconic cocktail got its name. Legend has it that the name celebrates Primo Carnera, the first Italian boxer to win a heavyweight title in New York.

It is also thought that the cocktail got its name due to its popularity with American tourists visiting Italy during the prohibition.

Known for sure is that the Americano is one James Bond’s favourite cocktails, being the very first drink he ordered in the original 007 Casino Royale.

Balanced and refreshing, The Americano is an iconic cocktail experience thanks to its smooth texture and striking mix of flavours.
