The 47th edition of the Barcolana sailing regatta

Barcolana, the historical and international sailing regatta, took place in the Gulf of Trieste on October 11. illycaffè was a sponsor of this huge event which reunites expert sailors and sailing lovers.

This year illycaffè organised the “Barcolana Chef” project, a theme competition that brought ten famous Italian Michelin-starred chefs to Trieste to live the Barcolana in their own way – with a challenge inspired by recipes created on the last day of summer sailing when sailors had to use up all the provisions left in the galley.

After Barcolana, illycaffè hosted friends and sailing lovers for a night of celebration dedicated to the beautiful city of Trieste.

The party was held at Salone degli Incanti, surrounded by great music and Sebastião Salgado’s beautiful photos, which are a part of the exhibition that celebrates the multi-national and multicultural story of coffee and the role the city of Trieste has played over the centuries in making and selling coffee.
