a Santa Lucia's friends

Since the 1930s, "a Santa Lucia" has been an undisputed meeting place for the stars of show-business that come to Milan. Over 400 portraits, with dedications, are on the walls testifying to this, as well as the great names – both Italian and international – that come here every day for the pleasures of the table.

Here is a selection of portraits with dedications (guess who they are!) and a list of famous customers, in order not to forget anybody. You will need to come to “a Santa Lucia” to discover them all.
