March’s Cocktail and Outfit – Italy, 1870

March’s Cocktail and Outfit – Italy, 1870

March’s look for the limited edition Campari Calendar 2015 starring Eva Green is inspired by the story behind the famous MI-TO cocktail, invented in Italy, around 1870.

That was when Campari bitter, traditionally made in Milan, came together with red vermouth, which is produced in Turin.

It is hardly surprising that the name MI-TO sounds exactly like the Italian word for “myth”.

Photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten has perfectly captured the legendary encounter of the two spirits as well as the mythical dimensions of a 140-year-old cocktail recipe that has become a classic favorite.
