Our Story

I12 Gatti - logo - 1.jpg

Once upon a time there was an old woman who lived in one of the attics of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The old woman was known, because through the dormers she fed the pigeons and her pair of black cats who roamed free on the rooftops. The day when the old woman, too lonely and too old to continue to live up there, left the attic, her cats remained. Too wild and too wary to be captured, contemptuous of danger and curious enough to venture more than once through the warehouses and shops of the Galleria, the cats thrived. The cats of the old woman have multiplied and today, on the rooftops of the Galleria, live a colony of twelve cats, all black.  With great enthusiasm we, along with the City Council of Milan and the association of animal protection, have made a commitment to contribute to their care, leaving them the space and the tranquility they need, because a roof without cats is anonymous. 

By eating here you are contributing to their care and especially their freedom.


Thank you,
